lyrics

Following tramlines, wandering home
Soaked through but we don't care
Sodium streetlights, shadows and chrome
Our voices fill the air

Picking up luggage, waiting at gates
Stretching yourself too thin
Time to move forward leaving behind
The house that you grew up in

Pick up the slack; the road home is never the same
When you turn to come back
The picture is changed

But there's no need to cry about it, I will pave the road anew
Stone by stone
And if you choose to turn around there'll always be a path for you
To what you've known

Although an ocean lies in between, zoom out
And it's in centimetres now
I don't miss a picture, your voice is clear and loud
And when our calendars allow

We will pick up the slack...
