The first single from the new LP "Only An Impulse".


So how can you get from this day to that, with the hair on your chest and the fat on your back? With so many crushes, and none of them loves, I've taken what you've given and still cannot give enough of my heart–that left me when you met me. I've no choices but that doesn't mean I'm settling.

In paper or in plastic in landfills or in love. In lockets and pockets and pictures we put up. In toilets and timetables with latex sweaty hugs, kill pills, pillows, me and you, or maybe just bad luck.

So it goes without saying, I've no choices but that doesn't mean I'm settling.

If you cried when we left, until those words raced through your head, saying "it's better to leave upset than to leave something unsaid". Still she goes without saying "I've no choices but that doesn't mean I'm settling".


from Only An Impulse, released August 1, 2012
