about

Speedwell Drive
Can only be seen in hindsight
Is free of honest mirrors
Says outrageous things about the future
Orchestrated by a broken jukebox
Makes the sky relevant
Has the future exciting
Makes you see through
Dares you to plan
Death can be blown a kiss, life too
You can love the/it/her/him
Only white cars ride
And once you're off Speedwell Drive...

Track Name: Farewells
Farewells rehearsed the second night of heartache
Why farewells hurt? The second night of heartache
Our eyes always met til the glass of your door
We'd always be beaming, we'd always want more
Now I know why I left in the dark of the night
It was the second night of heartache
I was trying to fight

You told me I wasn't warm enough
Warm enough for the snow
But now you're colder than I could ever know
Now you're colder than when I began to let go
It's true you're colder than

When I began to let go

Farewells rehearsed the second night of heartache
Why farewells hurt? The second night of heartache
You always tiptoed to a silent swan score
We'd always be laughing and never unsure
Now I know why I left in the dark of the night
It was the second night of heartache
I was trying to fight
Track Name: Red Admiral's Daughter
I spy in the corner
The Red Admiral's daughter,
They had her left as solemn again
Pinned up for the night
Like a tea stained print
Easy to flitter in candlelit spirit

A Saturday night
Smelling the smoke
In a haze of empty promises
They left her to choke

I'd have never treated you
Like the admiral's daughter

And then down Speedwell Drive
We made plans, solid plans
Mapped out in Leicestershire
My world and your hands

I'd have never sold it to you
If I didn't mean it.
Why did you ever sell it to me?
When you didn't mean it?

I'd have never treated you
Like the Admiral's daughter
Track Name: LEAD
I never draw anything
Spare a second for lead
Never draw my heart from my head
If I did it would be you

This night plays on my mind
This night plays all the time
Till the sun caught the slit in my eye
Us in your kitchen doing time.
Track Name: Darkest Cellar
We said some outrageous things about the future.
I just echoed all you said
Seems that echo played longer
Than you ever wanted

We had a different version of joy for everyday you lived,
Changed when it suited you

There's a line from my darkest cellar
Exactly what you wanted.
Stuck in time like a broken jukebox
I'm a failure who knows it

You took my future to town..

We said some outrageous things about the future
More than we ever did for the day
You did time for us, your guilt managed my trust, amen

Now theres a line from my darkest cellar
Exactly what you wanted
A settled fly could never escape the news
I'm a failure who knows it

You took my future to town

You never heard my frozen thoughts
The weight of the past brought you, dragged you down
When the past got too much
You took my future to town.

We said some outrageous things about the future.
I just echoed all you said
Seems that echo played longer than you ever wanted
Track Name: White Car Never Comes
The only thing I possess is thoughts of you and a view of the sea
In it, Ill build a statue of us. I got it wrong a lie tailored for me

You danced like you were free when we were together
For records played thats all I ever wanted when we were together

I'm not the only one with weak eyes
that's made her inside spin
Like a fuck in the skies
(Not the only one with breakable pride
A glass heart, a heart that never shakes
off breakable pride..)

Waiting for the white car to arrive
When roads are just a sea of black
Just position yourself in front of every mirror
Repeat repeat repeat the future always had your back

No one knows this place like I do
No one knows a finer detail of this place

I drugged myself in the lows
The lows of the confused
