lyrics

halfway round the world
feel like i’ve forgotten to turn the oven off
has everything burned down?

checking in ourselves at this uncanny cabin
it looks as advertised yet not at all
the room seems bigger in real life than in the listing

i’ve been looking out there to make things right
at the centre of it all, all skeins in flight
don’t go looking at me to get anything right
at decisive moments, i will be found wanting

in the surface glare the distance is forgotten
sunshine feels the same here and at home

the invisible hand that made this room ready
and someone else will sleep in here next week
the world seems bigger in real life than in the pictures

i’ve been looking at you to make things right
at the centre of it all, all skeins in flight
so don’t go looking at me to get anything right
at decisive moments, i will be found wanting
i will be found wanting again
but wants are rarely needs
