Track Name: MONSOON
SOS EMERGENCY
IM CALLING TO YOU FROM A LITTLE DINGHY
THAT I BOUGHT ONE SUMMER FROM COMBE MARTIN
I NEVER THOUGHT I’D NEED IT IN THE BACK GARDEN
BUT THE RAINS THEY CAME AND NEVER STOPPED
THE WATER LEVELS NEVER DROPPED
IVE BEEN TRYING TO REACH A SAFE POINT IN A STORM
BUT I FEAR SHE’S BEEN SWEPT AWAY IN THE FLOOD

NOW IM LOST LIKE KEVIN COSTNER IN A WATER WORLD
SPINNING IN A MAELSTROM, CAUGHT IN A SWIRL
AND IM DODGING ALL THE DEBRIS THAT’S FLOATING DOWNSTREAM
THE SHEDS, AND THE CARS, AND THE FALLEN TREES
AND THE WEATHERMAN'S LOOKING JUST LIKE A FOOL
THIS LITTLE APRIL SHOWER TURNED INTO A MONSOON

SO I FLOATED THROUGH VILLAGES AND TOWNS
PAST THE BELL AND BEAR, AND THE ROSE AND CROWN
THERE WAS WATER WATER EVERYWHERE BUT NOT A DROP TO DRINK
THIS DINGHY IS DEFLATING AND I SWEAR IM GONNA SINK

NOW I SAIL LIKE CAPTAIN WILLARD IN HIS MOTORBOAT
INTO A HEART OF DARKNESS JUST TRYING TO STAY AFLOAT
STILL DODGING ALL THE DEBRIS FLOATING DOWNSTREAM
THE HEARTS AND THE SOULS AND THE BROKEN DREAMS
AND THE WEATHERMAN STILL LOOKS LIKE A FOOL
THIS LITTLE APRIL SHOWER TURNED INTO A MONSOON

WHATS THE PLURAL OF ALBATROSS
WITH THE LUCK IM HAVING I MUST HAVE KILLED THE WHOLE GOD-DAMN FLOCK

THEN ON A NEARBY ROOFTOP I CATCH A GLIMPSE OF YOU
YOUR HOLLERING AND WAVING FOR ME TO RESCUE YOU
SO YOU TAKE MY HAND AND JOIN ME ON THIS LITTLE DINGHY
AND WE SAIL INTO THE SUN AS THE WATERS RECEDE
AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO A FLAMING JUNE
THIS LAST HAPPY CHORUS IS THE END OF THE MONSOON
Track Name: 'B' SIDE
DEAR DEAR LISTENER PLEASED TO MEET YOU
I’D LIKE TO PRESENT MY POINTS OF VIEW
OF THE PROS AND CONS OF BEING A B SIDE
SEE IM OVERLOOKED AND MUCH MALIGNED
BECAUSE PEOPLE CANT SEE PAST THE DAMN A SIDE
BUT IM FULL OF SURPRISES YOU WILL FIND

IM MUSICALLY DIVERSE AND IN A MINOR KEY
I WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE LP

I AM THE B SIDE IM AM AN AFTERTHOUGHT
IN MY CREATORS MIND
I AM THE B SIDE IM ONLY THERE TO FILL THE EMPTY SECOND SIDE
I AM THE B SIDE JUST FLIP ME OVER
AND I’LL BLOW YOUR MIND

SEE I WASN’T POPPY OR CATCHY ENOUGH
HAVE LYRICS ABOUT GIRLS OR CRAZY STUFF
TO EVER BE CONSIDERED FOR THE A SIDE
BUT I’LL HAVE THE LAST LAUGH YOU WAIT AND SEE
BECAUSE OF MY QUIRKINESS AND DIVERSITY
YOU WONT BE ABLE TO RESIST MY MUSICALITY

AND YOU KNOW SOME DAY I’LL BE A CLASSIC
A FIRM FAVOURITE OF ALL THE MASSES

BUT FOR NOW I’LL PATIENTLY BIDE MY TIME
FACE DOWN, TURN TABLE, ON THE FLIP SIDE
