Fairytales & Firesides

Passenger


We are bitter losers, snarling through our smiles
We’re the lost boys, in the supermarket aisles
We’re christmas dogs dumped, by the side of the road
Confused, we will run for miles
We are road rage
We are stone age
We are wild

We are busted light bulbs, in a backstreet neon sign
We’re the shaking gun in a service station line
We’ll drink though we’re drunk
We’ll sink though we’ve sunk
We’re fucked but we say that we’re fine
We are rampage
Missing back pages in our spine

We long for journeys and the roadside
We long for starlight and the low tide
Yeah, we long for fairy tales and firesides
And, oh

We are coffeehouse cynics
Too righteous, too rigid to believe
Disappointed romantics
Scraping the heart’s from our sleeves
We’re the toothless drunk
We’re the ageing punk
Yeah, we are Adam
We’re the apple, and we’re Eve
We are beggars with shiny pennies, on our knees

We long, for sunlight on the hillsides
Yeah, we long, for yesterdays and hindsight
Oh, we long, for fairy tales and firesides
And, oh

Yeah, we long for carnivals and fairground rides
Oh, we long for journeys and the roadsides
Oh, we long for fairy tales and firesides
