I felt lonely for a second
Pulled the blinds back to watch the bin men
I could search a landfill finding words for something simple
Slowly decomposing in the horizontal light
Cuz I was tryna tell you something
I end up saying half of nothing
You just want my best intentions
But I'm looking out through dark glasses
I can't give you reassurance
That nothing else was here before us
But I'll give you my full attention
While I'm looking out through dark glasses
Another second, I was defeated
Losing the meaning of words repeated
If there's someone out there could you make some kind of signal?
I just want see you like a flare gun in the night
Did I say that right?
Press your face to the limo
Let’s stay up tonight
And I’ll climb through your window
I just wanna feel like I can be myself
I don’t wanna leave the earth from nowhere else
I just stare ahead and hope that it all passes
Won’t ya spare my blushes
I’m looking out through dark glasses
What a lineup. So many amazing artists involved in this compilation, and all for a mighty cause too.
On my first play through, so can’t name a favourite yet, but you know your can’t go wrong with Salvation Bill and BE GOOD.
Shout out to Lucy Leave in particular as well, who are shining a light on Oxford’s alternative scene at the moment. Jack Olchawski
