lyrics

The atom bomb
And our love tonight
And a white picket fence
In the moonlight
In the garden stands
A pine cone tree
Decorated by the necklaces
Of the rosary
And Matthew's returned
But Louise has gone
And the footstep prints
Are dangerous
Now they're frozen
In the distance sounds
A church bell's chime
The rumble of locomotives
On the eastern line

And I would think about you
In much the same way
That I do now
I could write one hundred letters
But my words they won't pour out
And at 6am
On a December morning
I could hear the nightingale sing
And it lit up all
Of the dark houses

The high street is dead
The stores are closed
But this town had never felt more alive
Nor predisposed
To reckless love
Or a cruel intent
As two gloved hands
Squeeze tightly by the monument

But we never left that school yard
Never left that town
And we never left those feelings
Or the fears
Or the frowns
No we never left those feelings
Those feelings still remain
And I don't care what they think of us
Our love still weighs the same

And I will think about you
In much the same way
That I do now
I could write one hundred letters
But my words they won't pour out
And at 6am on a December morning
I could hear the nightingale sing
And it lit up all
Of the dark houses

The atom bomb
And our love tonight
And a white picket fence
In the moonlight

about

The Winter Hill Transmission Newcastle, UK

"One of the strangest, most gloriously original bands I’ve heard for a long time… like Jake Thackray writing lyrics for Crosby, Stills and Nash."
