lyrics

"Sunlight hold me"

Sunlight hold me,
Make me wholly alive.
Sunlight scold me,
Keep me far from tupperware skies.

And do what you can before it is time.
And do what you can before it is time.

Sunlight hold me,
Relight all, all that has died.
September through to May,
Hibernate the English way...inside.

And do what you can before you have to wave us goodbye.
And do what you can before you have to wave us goodbye.

Slim Slow Slider
Van's cruel timbre... beware.
"I know you're dying girl"
These words strike an unusual despair.

And do what you can before you have to wave us goodbye.
And do what you can before you have to wave us goodbye.

Dowse now with enlightening rays,
The pubs and the clubs and useless chains,
The hiding place of a people betrayed,
The fast food and tracksuits and an underworld of grey.
Raise now from the drab and the blue,
Halifax, Coventry, the M62,
And bring sunshine.

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
