Jack’s comments from Bandcamp:

A love song with a pretty good lyric and vocal if you ask me.
Bit of soul, a few horns. Nice Gerard guitar solo.

 

Lyrics

Laying wake again
So nothing much has changed
Sweat, cool breeze and the restlessness
Sifting the day’s events
Your sweet skin my harbour
Calamity strikes again and the poison throbs

It’s not so bad down here at the far end of the earth
It’s not so bad down here
When the lights are out, and the worm has turned

Emotional mystery
Trying to keep track
Of the ups and downs and the twists and turns

Well, it’s not so dark down here
When you’re in your lover’s arms
It’s not so bad down here, when the lights are down

You can thank your lucky stars
Touch wood
Is it fools’ or is it gold?
Is it something you can hold?

Thank your luck stars
Just pinch yourself
Is it fake or is it real?
Is it love we still feel?

It’s not so dark down here
When you’re in your lover’s arms
It’s not so bad down here, when the lights are down

You can thank your lucky stars
Touch wood
Is it fools’ or is it gold?
Is it something you can hold?

Thank your luck stars
Just pinch yourself
Is it fake or is it real?
Is it love we still feel?
