|Vocals, Acoustic Guitar:||Frank Turner|
The first girl that I fell for was a fair and faithful fighter, she smouldered with a will to save the world. I did my best to help her, I stood shoulder to shoulder on the frontlines with THAT visionary girl. I wish that she had cared for me, but in the end her ideologIES occupied the fortress of her heart. I wrote her fifteen songs but still we had to part.
If music was the food of love then I'd be a fat romantic slob. Music is my substitute for love.
The last girl that I loved was a low and lusty liar who set my heart on fire and made me choke. Her beauty was a sight to see, but she didn't save it all for me. I found other fires by following the smoke. I wished that she had either cared for me or let me be, but she drove me from my mind and from my home. I wrote her sixteen songs but ended up alone.
If love is really all THAT we need then even ALL MY SINGING IS NEVER GOING TO save me. Music is my substitute for love.
I’ve had many different girls inside my bed, but only one or two inside my head. These days I cuddle up to my guitar instead. But oh, what I would give, not to stumble but to really fall in love. And I could substitute my singing for the sound of someone sleeping next to me.
