These hammers and strings
Been following me around
From a box filled garage
To the dark punk rock clubs
Of 1000 American towns
And my friend calls me up
She says, "how have you been?"
I say, "dear I've been well,
Yeah the money's coming
But I miss you like hell.
I still hear you in this
Old piano, oh yeah."
She says, "Andy, I know
That we don't talk as much
But I still hear your ghost
In these old punk rock clubs
Come on, write me a song
Give me something to trust
Just promise you won't let it be
Just the keys that you touch."

Give me something to believe in,
A breath from the breathing
So write it down,
I don't think that I'll close my eyes
'Cause lately I'm not dreaming
So what's the point in sleeping?
It's just that at night,
I've got nowhere to hide
So I write you a lullaby
A lullaby

These hammers and strings
Been following me around
Behind passenger vans
Through the snow, dirt, and sands
Of 1000 American towns
And my friend calls me up
With her heart heavy still
She says, "Andy, the doctors
Prescribed me the pills.
But I know I'm not crazy.
I just lost my will.
So why am I, why am I
Taking them still?"

I need something to believe in
A breath from the breathing
So write it down,
I don't think that I'll close my eyes
'Cause lately I'm not dreaming
So what's the point in sleeping?
It's just that at night,
I've got nowhere to hide

To the sleepless, this is my reply:
I will write you a lullaby,
A lullaby.

Give me something to believe in,

I don't think that I'll close my eyes
'Cause lately I'm not dreaming
So what's the point in sleeping?
It's just that at night,
I've got nowhere to hide

To the sleepless, this is my reply:
I'll write you a lullaby
A lullaby, a lullaby, a lullaby

Only We Can Save Us

So as some of you may have already known, this past weekend I spent some time with the lovely Enolas Secret boys from Adelaide. Friday evening after the Short Stack Myspace Secret Show at the GC Arts Centre I met up with Brenden for a 40 minute chat in Surfers before the ES show at the Hard Rock. Unfortunately I couldn't stay because of Bree's driving curfew.. Thankfully they were playing at the Hive on the Saturday!

Considering they're not an acoustic band, obviously an acoustic performance wasn't going to be the best that they'd have haha so they mildly apologized to the crowd. Apparently they didn't realise until they actually got to the Hive that it's not only an acoustic venue anymore haha. Nevertheless, Jess got this picture of Brenden :)

The picture below is the image I posted to twitter via Twitpic. Really not good quality but if you have hiptop slide you'll know exactly why. But that's Jack, Matt and Brenden :) The pic cut out Mark on the keys (to the left of Jack).
I don't think words could explain how amazing these kids are when performing an actual live set. Next time they're in your town you must see them!

Go get their EP "Only We Can Save Us" from JB Hi:Fi now, it's brilliant.
