about

Written and sung by Joe. An ode to long-distance lust.

lyrics

I pick you up from the airport today
I can’t believe the day has come
I fiddle around with my hair and my clothes
I’m feeling like I’m 21

I feel my heart skip out of time
face after face but then my god I know that smile

Tell me the things you think of when you’re so far away
all of the things you dream of when your night is my day

When you look at me that way
I pull back the curtains let’s make the tea go cold

Say your holidays are forever
if you stay then even better
say you want to waste the morning
it could be nice with a shag and a another tea

Good morning what should we do today
I put on the kettle I open the curtains to a glorious day

When you look at me that way
I pull back the curtains let’s make the tea go cold

Say your holidays are forever
if you stay then even better
say you want to waste the morning
it could be nice with a shag and a another tea

I want you all the time

I dropped you off at the airport today
I can’t believe the day has come
I fumble around with my words and your bags
I’m feeling pretty down and dumb

I feel my heart skip out of time
tear after tear then my god you’re gone

Say your holidays are forever
if you stay then even better
say you want to waste the morning
each and every day

I want you all the time
