Squeaky pedals and broken dishes – recorded above MAP Studio Cafe in Kentish Town. For my partner in crime. #EGD30

lyrics

The girl next door to me
She had all the teenage boys losing their minds
And me a little too I guess
It did me good to know she slept the other side of the wall

And on a first impression
I could see the truth in my premonition
That I could not survive in such a city
That I could not keep pace with the tuition

But I had a stranger by my side
And we are ten years older now
No wiser
No better
Just older
And still together

The girl next door to me
She would not permit regret or feeling shame
And up and down we'd go
Smoking cigarettes and traipsing home in the early hours

And there she was every time
I rallied the crowds to hear me singing
When I would lose my nerve
She sat through it all from the beginning

So with my sister by my side
We are an island all at sea
No wiser
No better
Just older
And still together

And on a first impression
I could see the truth in my premonition
That I could not survive in such a city
That I could not keep pace with the tuition

But I had a stranger by my side
And we are ten years older now
No wiser
No better
Just older
And still together
