Lyrics: 

I’m full of challenge, stoppered
Up behind my throat
I’ll push it down with nebulizers
And a total lack of hope
I’ve been a coward all this time
I’ve been so frightened all these years
I’ve been beaten down and blind
To this

I used to be so pointy
But I’ve become a little sharp
No longer characteristic
Just a flavour in a gasp
Just a tightness in a grip
And just a name upon my tongue
Just a desperate urging closer
With an earthquake in my palms

I hope you’re the same as I am
I hope you’re the same

Palpitations, murmurs, blips
I’m clutching at my ribs
I know there’s space in there for something
But I don’t know what it is
I see you struggle with your surname
In a hot flash
I can’t tear my eyes away
We’re like a car crash

And I latch onto a nightmare
And you hold up the dream
Remember, when you’re truly happy
Then a cheer sounds like a scream

I hope you’re the same as I am
I hope you’re the same

I hope you feel the same as I did
I hope you’re the same

Shake out the pins and needles
Shake out the past
Shake out the indecision
Gone at last
If you and I don’t struggle it could
Hold us fast
Fall into the coming times
And each other’s arms

I’m full of challenge, and
You’re crowning me King Dare
I’ve got a gap above my stomach
And I wish it wasn’t there
I wonder if you even hear me
If I’m speaking in hot air

I hope you’re the same as I am
I hope you’re the same

I hope you feel the same as I did
I hope you’re the same

i love the briskness of your well articulated delivery of these rolling and tumbling lyrics. this reminds me a bit of nick drake, possibly because of the guitar part. you have written and recorded so many fascinating songs this season,and i have enjoyed listening to them all.
