lyrics

Here’s where we played baby
Here’s where we fell down
Here’s where we bled honey
Into the ground
Here’s where we loved baby
Here’s where we made out
Here’s where we cried honey
Tears in the ground

All our ghosts
Are laid in the ground

Over the bridge riding
Down through the way down
Oh with our sweat dripping
Into the ground
Holding your hand honey
Oh with our eyes down
Oh with our hearts pouring
Into the ground

All our ghosts
Are laid in the ground

Here’s where we grew slowly
Straight out of thin air
Here’s where we bred gently
Out of the ground
Watching the days rolling
Watching the years fly
Watching us grow slowly
Into the ground

All our ghosts
Are laid in the ground

Now that my legs fail me
Now that I shuffle down
Here’s where I think baby
Face to the ground
Here’s where we’ll stay honey
Here’s where we’ll lay down
Here’s where I’ll sink finally
Into the ground

With all our ghosts
There in the ground

about

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...
