lyrics

Dark and quiet corners
In the place I saw you last
You were talking up the future
With your head stuck in your past
Now you're swinging low

You were listing off your enemies
Let them push against your will
And I was watching your soul float away
And you were talking at me still
Now you're swinging low

Walk the empty streets at dawn
Till your troubles fall away
At the bottom there's just broken glass
And a struggle to walk away
And it's hard to watch an old friend falling
Shifting shapes
But you'll bend it all until it breaks

Staring into spaces
And at the centre of it all
You've got nothing weighed or measured
So it goes before the fall
You were swinging low

You were chalking up your victories
Splashed against the wall
Locked in petty misery
You were preaching to them all
You were swinging low

Walk the empty streets at dawn
Till your troubles fall away
At the bottom there's just broken glass
And a struggle to walk away
And it's hard to watch an old friend falling
Shifting shapes
But you'll bend it all until it breaks

Don't let them catch you crying
From what you've seen
Big old storm clouds gather round now
And you're at sea

Don't let them catch you crying
From what you've seen
Big old storm clouds gather round now
And you're at sea

Amarillo is the project of Melbourne duo Nick O'Mara and Jac Tonks. Singing songs and playing guitars acoustic and electric, this self-titled 6 track EP is their first offering.
