The House We Grew Up In

The Official Website of Alistair Hennessey - Debut full length record, "The House We Grew Up In" out now on No Sleep Records.

"Forever alone"

Be careful you don't miss out, we'll pay for the wedding
Crazed eyes on me, all dressed to the teeth it's the age of
Hopeless romantics and heartbroken ghosts in the floor (alone)
While we rest our heads on separate beds, alone, alone, forever skin deep, alone

Trust in the good books you read the promise you never
kiss your troubles goodbye, kiss your troubles goodbye

Trust that those looks won't last the night
Burned black book with those diamond eyes
Kiss me goodbye, here I go again, losing my head
Manic waits in the back seat, brash, it stares at them - now I'm at my best again
Steer straight, keeping course 'round the ring and at the best of you
Vow to choke on that  perfume
Steer straight, keeping course 'round the ring and at the best of you
Vow to choke on that... swallow something new

I swallow my pride and spit up your blood
It's a bloody fucking mess, you call it home, glass bones and stitches hold up them walls
Wedlocked and loaded questions; to have to hold down
It's a bloody fucking mess, you call it home, glass bones and stitches hold up them walls
The shotgun sentence you, forever alone
It's a bloody fucking mess

The weight alters me, ushered fast to your fate
My one and only fucking mess, I do, I don't know
But a house makes a home
And I think to much for me alone
I can't fucking think for us both
