Johnny Foreigner – Salt, Peppa and Spinderella.

“turn on the real drums”.

We walk out like lions short on prey and move noisily toward the gate
All pride, how wide are my eyes?
Are you hungry now?
Are you hungry now?
We like to watch the fights break out and end in grief from these cheap plastic seats
And hold each other a little closerWe’ve got a place for the night
What are you worried about?
We’ve got our answerphones
Are you hungry now?
what are you hungry for?
We’ve got our alibis straight
What are you worried about?
I think I liked you more when you were worse
(Are you hungry now? What are you hungry for?)

Blackbird on my back again
I caught a shock but my heart’s still beating
Stop shaking your hips at me
You could learn a little less from photography, sure
We like to watch the fights break out and end in grief from these cheap plastic seats
And hold each other a little closer

We’ve got our friends in the city
What are you worried about?
We’ve got our alibis
Are you hungry now?
What are you hungry for?
We’ve got our answerphones on
What are you worried about?
I think I liked you more when you were worse

And in the point between the rain outside and hanging suspended in the air and the room around you spinning.
You’ll find the time if you need it. 2,500 miles apart and I never saw it clearer.
We prayed for moments like this. Little sparks, little hits from someone else’s God.
How hanging out of the 15th storey windows never felt so relaxing.
Bring out the real fun, turn on the real drums.
