lyrics

On Fellbarrow Hill
Head in the clouds
It feels like you're next to me
Looking out at the town
The 21st Century has been bringing us down
Our childhoods are history
They left without a sound

In the tearooms at two
Sat over from you
Our raincoats are worn and torn like the love we once knew
Now we can smile again
Where once we withdrew
From simple existence
Now we'll make our own way through

I can lose Cappadocia... it'll leave on the breeze
I can lose St Lucia to cerulean seas
I can lose Nara behind doorways of dreams
But I can't lose Alaska
It's to vast and far away from me

Under overcast skies
At Loweswater Lake
Your hair 'cross your face
Blown cross your lips, you smile anyway
It feels like we're real again
With so little time to spend
So much science to comprehend
So let's breathe each moment in

I can lose Mesa Verde, hopes aren't hewn from stone
I can lose St Petersburg, leave her dancing alone
I can lose the Aurlandsfjord, drift out to the unknown
But I can't lose Alaska
It's too vast and far away from home

At Killington Lake
And it's getting late
Bought a couple of cheap photo frames to remember our day
Sat in the car
Your hand next to mine
Your face is so gentle
Your words, so pure and kind

I can lose Gullfoss, it'll carry my tears
I can lose Bergen, it's all wharves and piers
I can lose Stone Town, Tulum or Tangiers
But I can't lose Alaska
It's too vast, and far away from here
