about

I went to America a few years ago and stayed at a really really terrible Air BnB. Its redeeming feature was that it had a wonky little piano and that is where this song was born.

lyrics

Hold on, hold on. Hold on, hold on.

When we first met, I thought about you and Christmas,
only then Christmas came and you did not care for Christmas.
The summer nights, so hot and in a daze, you pulled me down, a weight on my face.
You swam for a moment, but I drowned for a year.

Together, but completely apart, does arm's length keep you exempt from breaking hearts? From breaking hearts.
Oh we're together but completely apart, does arm's length keep you from breaking hearts? Hearts.

Now it's autumn, I still think about you and Christmas, but only when I hear that band, or walk past the pub we met in. I remember hearing everything that you didn't say. I waited but never came the day.
Then you said, I've got a new girl this Christmas, she meets my sister tomorrow. I never knew that you had a sister. You never told me you had a sister. You never told me you had a sister.

Fresh cut grass and the rain smells the same, any place in the world.
Fresh cut grass and the rain smells the same, any place in the world.
Fresh cut grass and the rain smells the same, any place in the world.
Fresh cut grass and the rain smells the same, any place in the world.

Together, but completely apart, does arm's length keep you exempt from breaking hearts? From breaking hearts.
Oh we're together but completely apart, does arm's length keep you from breaking hearts? Hearts.

Hold on, hold on. Hold on, hold on.
