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.

"Wanderlust"

I'm packing up everything broken
I'm heading out somewhere to sleep
Somewhere there's no one but me

I've got the roughest hands, cracked and callused and opening
They split as you cling to them, drift in a breeze like....
While the north wind burns my corse skin the sting of my wandering heart sets in
Incendiary, but happy alone in the cold
Stay an arm's length away- an arm's length from me

I'm packing up everything broken
I'm heading out somewhere to sleep
Somewhere there's no one...

I've got a knack for this, vagrant heart keeps me spread so thin. Now, roused, I sing with those weak in the knees like...Asleep on the seat, moving on, getting off on the cracks in the street
Harvest the warmth in the cold, providence swallow you whole

Stay an arm's length away- an arm's length from me

My ambition and the blues are better company than you
And I digress, lay rest to rest

At last we're at home; out lost on the road again

My ambition and the blues are better company than you
