RESERVOIR

Verse I

I stay up late every night with my best friend,

He is the one who I tell when I'm sad.

I lie awake every night.

 

He is the one who'll accompany me,

As I run around the reservoir looking for a hedgehog.

He'll stay by my side until my lips turn blue.

 

I like awake every night.

I lie awake.

 

Chorus

Because I'm anxious 'til I fall asleep,

Tell me when you wanna meet,

Down by the reservoir.

Because I'm anxious 'til I fall asleep,

Tell me when you wanna meet,

Down by the reservoir.

 

Verse II

I stay up late every night with my best friend,

And dance in socks to dust covered albums.

I lie awake every night.

And as we skim the flattest stones,

And I search for the perfect pinecone,

And wash the dirty right off my dungarees...

I can tell that we are gonna be friends.

This song's back hurts from single handedly carrying my Spotify streams.

 

A lot of my songs are laboured over for weeks and months at a time but this song was written in 20 minutes.

It was written in competition with a friend to see who could write the better song in 20 minutes using the same four chords.

And who was that friend? Sophie Ellis-Bextor
