Brand New Coat of Armour

from by Idan Rabinovici

lyrics

i had so much to tell
i just didn't write it down
i went to the park to take pictures
of josh, and the bench, and the swan
and i was drunk on cheap boxed wine
with my suit on

there was snow outside
so i brought her old red hat
and a brand new coat of armour
in case she tried to take it back
i danced with stars in the courtyard
to the oboe

gotta say the words right
gotta say them right the first time round

lizzie's face turns bright
at the craziest of things
she likes to purr at night
while she's rubbing against my skin
the things i miss when i'm not looking
like her green shirt

gotta say the words right
gotta say them right the first time round

whenever i'm feeling trapped
there's always the back door
and the fare's taken care of,
so we can go on pretending that we're not alone
it's better sleeping with my clothes on
and a let-down

gotta say the words right
gotta say them right the first time round
