about

This song started it's life in the world of four Day Hombre, and never made it through to the first Hope and Social album, hopeandsocial.bandcamp.com/album/architect-of-this-church

Favourite bit it the dampened piano/guitar line that sounds like pizzicato strings The rest of it, we did right to leave it on the cutting room floor (aka the hard drive of Christmas past)

lyrics

There's a place we can stay
Rest your head upon my lap and put your eyes away
There's a place we can be
Talk yourself to sleep, and leave your words with me

There's a place we can hide
Let your breathing ease, and all your fears subside
There's a place we can pray
Leave your thoughts with me and I'll set them on their way

I saw you. We'll meet again.
I saw you. We'll meet again.

There are so few days
Let's starve the night of rest and talk until we find a way
To arm ourselves with dreams
To fight the deadliness of boredom and monotony

So don't mark your brow
With the ugly lines of disappointment weighing down
Don't mark your time
Filling up your days with things you should have left behind.

I saw you. We'll meet again.
I saw you. We'll meet again.
I saw you. We'll meet again.
I saw you. We'll meet again.
I saw you. We'll meet again.
I saw you. We'll meet again.
I saw you. We'll meet again.
I saw you. We'll meet again.

There's a place we can stay
Turn your face up to the light and put your shame away
There's a place we can be
Give up your old routine, take this philosophy

There's a place we can hide
Watch the world a while, you set it racing by
There's a place we can be
Put your faith in God, but leave your doubt for me.

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...

"a big sound from this impressive outfit...inspired, anthemic, great" - Q magazine
