This was the first tryout of this song... but something amazing happened, so we kept it.

lyrics

Now the clouds are thinning out
Now the green pokes through
I can see the daffodils
There in their bloom

Now the mist is breaking up
Now the sun cuts through
I can see the houses form
There in the blue

I'm just a spec, a piece of dust
Floating round the universe.
But so are you, and so are they
But right here now well that's okay

Every moments lights will change
Strangers passing through
This place, this belongs to me
A dot in the blue

I'm just a spec, a piece of dust
Floating round the universe.
But so are you, and so are they
But right here now well that's okay

The swallows dance up in the sky
The cows march on the countryside
The trees are swaying, beating time
It's not some proof, it's not a sign

It's just the cards, the way it plays
Some things will grow, some things decay
And we will live, and we will die
But right here now well that's alright

The swallows dance up in the sky
The cows march on the countryside
The trees are swaying, beating time
It's not some proof, it's not a sign

It's just the cards, the way it plays
Some things will grow, some things decay
And we will live, and we will die
But right here now well that's alright

I'm just a spec, a piece of dust
Floating round the universe.

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...
