lyrics

Boxers

All is well
All is well
Can't you tell?
Can't you tell?
We sit in parked cars
With exhaust from our pipes
It's too cold for the cops tonight

Oh oh oh Oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh 

I love you all
With all my guts
And even still
It's not enough
We drink our whiskey
In pints at the bar
We sigh and shiver
Under miserable stars
And we say hey
How do you say goodbye
To a dream that just won't die
Is it a feeling or is it a lie?
They kicked us out tonight

Oh oh oh Oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh 

All our heroes
Had no choice
Some busted chords
And a broken voice
A song of justice 
Is no soaring wind you'll hum
It's a faraway dirge
That might never come
'Til we say hey
How do you say goodbye
To a dream that just won't die
Is it a feeling or is it a lie?
Yer a boxer against the ropes
& there's blood running down yer throat
But this is the fight you chose
Here we go

Oh oh oh Oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh

Produced by Brian Fallon, "Starlings" shimmers with silvery anthems & a captivating focus. The set clocks in at 40 minutes with no prevarication or bluster, just a celebratory noise alight w/ hearts, broken-in voices & poetry. ... more
