Lyrics

Walked the streets with my memory
My memory for company
Find a lane less travelled
And travel it for a while

A little church, a fallen arch
Some obscure ancient art
Fast forgot
Blinkers on

Break open the heart of it
Savour the taste of it

You know it doesn’t have to hurt
It doesn’t have to burn
It doesn’t have to bring you down
It doesn’t have to make you cry
It doesn’t
It doesn’t yeh yeh

Drink bad coffee just to pass the time
Eye the sad eyed waitress
Out of habit and vacant lust
The fog fails to lift

Another side, another face
Another smell, another taste
Around the bend I realise
That you’re lost

Break open the heart of it
Savour the taste of it

You know it doesn’t have to hurt
It doesn’t have to crack
It doesn’t have to parch your lungs
It doesn’t have to last this long
It doesn’t
It doesn’t yeh yeh

Break open the heart of it
Savour the taste of it

You know it doesn’t have to hurt
It doesn’t have to burn
It doesn’t have to bring you down
It doesn’t have to make you cry

It doesn’t have to hurt
It doesn’t have to crack
It doesn’t have the parch your lungs
It doesn’t have to last this long
It doesn’t
It doesn’t yeh yeh

It doesn’t yeh yeh
It doesn’t yeh yeh
