Number One

This song is by Slow Club and appears on the album Complete Surrender (2014).

I looked up and all I could see was mist
Who needs coasts when you're perfectly adrift
I've got a friend who knows just how it is
We walked a while and watched the sun arrive
Drinking and plannin', hey, you know any time
You wanna sing, I'm here, just like tonight
Golden storm, put that hurricane away
I wasn't flattered when you named it after me
I want to lay down almost constantly, 'cause I know

Just how to look the other way
It was so much easier yesterday
When the door was open and
We're just running far
Come on, let's close it and
I'll call you number one, number one
Number one, number one

You're reading books about how it all should work
Or a garden coming to color in that northwest town
Where the streets are overrun;
Punk rock kids do what they've always done
Time can stop; I was the lucky one
Blue blood runs out into the street
T.V. shows rewarding treachery
I'm watching now and I will be the same time, next week

Just to learn how to look away
I want to understand yesterday
When the door was open and
We're just running far
Come on, let's close it and
I'll call you number one, number one
Number one, number one

Don't let him run the race
Come out of your hiding place

I look into your eyes but don't know how they work
Desire is power, and trust is just a word
Remember when we met, I was young and you were hurt
Maybe we should talk about what's at stake
You don't have to feel like shit and say it's o.k.
Or pretend to be asleep while you're dreaming of being awake
