lyrics

Not Yet

1: It seems
To me
That you can’t /sleep

2: /By hook or by crooked look give me land
One fist holds a lighter the other your hand
The oh’s of your screams still echo in yer dreams
I’ll point you steer and we’ll rip up the map by the /seams

1: It /seems oh it seems
To me
That you
You can’t sleep/

2: /Grab the stroud and we’ll roar to the clouds come and get us
And the wind picks up up up and I’ll never let you
Down it’s time to fight don’t be yellow bellied
Hold the bar at Hurley's hurly burly's give em hell give em /hell

1: but I /held your hand
As you shook in the middle of the night
Without waking you said
Both: Not yet not yet
Not yet not yet
Not yet not

Chorus:
1: Sing me awake with a song about pirates
And I will try to harmonise
Both: And sip the sunlight from your eyes
Oh sing me awake
With all the things we’ll do today
But instead we’ll build a den
Out of pillows and get drunk again
1: Cos everyone knows sex is better when you’re
Unemployed

It seems oh it seems
To me
That you
You can’t dance
For shit

2: Where is god ma
Where’s the vodka
If my old mum could see me now
Oh how she’d howl she’d /howl

1: hold my hand
As you shook in the middle of the night
Without waking you said
Both: Not yet not yet
Not yet not yet
Not yet not yet
Not yet not yet
Not yet not yet
Not yet not yet not yet not

Chorus

Breakdown 1&2:
I cannot find the words to keep you
It cannot be a lie if no one hears
Let the seabirds
Don’t turn 'round
He says





Love Run

2: O let the world come at you, love,
Like distant toms a-drumming.
Love, run! The song you know's begun,

O let the earth a-tumble, love,
And humble you withal,
Keep running. It’s up to you now,
Up to you now love to

Chorus:
(Love) Run, love run
For all the things you’ve done
Run for all the things that drum
Run for all those pages thumbed

Love run, love run
For all the things we wished we’d done
Run from all you know that’s coming
Run to show that love’s worth running to

1: Let foul men band and heed your hum
For that ancient hymn you heard me strumming?
Is nought but fumble-falls and guns
And tumbleweeds. Love, run!
It's nought that rum won't solve
Though some would harm you, none - not one - no none
Will raise to you a hand nor thumb
Both: Not while by you I stand and hum

Both: Chorus

2: All that matters
Is that you're here
All that matters

O let the land come at you, love,
With all it's sand and sin, a-singing.
A song you once knew well's begun,
Run until your lungs are numb.
Now let the earth a-tumble, love,
And humble you withal, keep running.
It's not from what we run that drums,
But what's to come, what’s to come

Both: Chorus
