the coast

Recorded at Glass Planet Studios with producer Krys Keylor in 2006/07

there's no way out there's no way back

and the things that we need the most make up all we lack

when what you got is what you get

it's good when it's good and when it turns you just call it quits

 

this long train coming on just sailed off the track

you never stole from me baby you just borrowed and never gave it back.

   and quietly we sit waiting for that ship

    to roll across the harbour but it never comes in

   and the thing you wanted most, just moved out to the coast

    and you want her so bad, but you know you'll never give in

 

with nothing to win and nothing left to prove

like when the record skips a beat it's just finding it's groove

the reverend says we'd be better off dead

and when all is said and done this won't matter one bit.

 

       and quietly we sit

waiting for that ship

     to roll across the harbour

         but it never comes in

and the thing you need the most

     tears through you like a ghost

    and she's been trying so hard

        and all she wants is to come back in

 

there's no way back and there's no way in

and the things are passing you by won't come back again
