lyrics

And we drove we drove for hours
Lightning followed in our wake
Illuminating broken up coastlines
Transformers and power lines

And the wind began to blow
As the hidden moon hung low
And the pigeons cooed like lovers
Calling from the darkened dining room

So it started out fine,
And it ended up alright,
We were chased by black angels
And blinded by the light
But we made it through the morning
And we made it through the night
Now you, me and the coffee pot
Could see everything
And we still might…
We still might

And we fed it when we could
In forests sawn up for their wood
And in the Caledonian rain
We dipped into another country lane - where at last we understood

That like the Nith the Forth and the Tay
We’d both meandered in our way
Shipwrecked lovers in a bay
The back of the ocean they say

So it started out fine,
And it ended up alright,
We were chased by black angels
And blinded by the light
But we made it through the morning
And we made it through the night
Now you, me and the coffee pot
Could see everything
And we still might…
We still might

And now the tears from the windowsills
Are stored in giant copper stills
But though the mountainsides are dry
The pebbledash mansions are all mine

And we drove we drove for hours
Lightning followed in our wake
And in a flash I felt more sure
Than I’d ever felt before, that we would take the turns we had to take

So it started out fine,
And it ended up alright,
We were chased by black angels
And blinded by the light
But we made it through the morning
And we made it through the night
Now you, me and the coffee pot
Could see everything
And we still might
We still might
We still might
We still might
