Lyrics

Bell's Hotel

Written By: Eric Nordberg - Atticus Finch

Bell’s Hotel

V1

Friday night at the Bell’s Hotel
In a part of South Melbourne that you know well
After all these years you haven’t travelled so far
Happy hour with your mates at the front bar

V2

In from the rain that’s soaked you to your bones
You can’t stay here and you can’t go home
You feel this bitterness twisting you deeper inside
You can’t run from it and you can’t hide

Chorus

In to you far much more than when it began
After all these years you haven’t travelled so far
From here to there to be found in the place that you are
Midnight is starting to set on your beautiful star

V3

You live in a place that I can’t even spell
And if you talk too fast you can’t say it so well
The other side is somewhere no-one else goes
Two hundred miles from the Bell’s hotel

V4

Happy hour with no-one you know
Got into you, right deep into your bones
After all this time you haven’t travelled so far
Two hundred miles and you still don’t know who you are

Chorus

Lead instrumental

Chorus

Chasing Storms

Written By: Nathan Coleman - Atticus Finch

Chasing Storms

V1

It’s been 99 days – We’ve been waiting for rain to fall – Over our town
And black clouds – On the horizon – Are teasing us with lightning and empty promises

Chorus

So let’s pack the kids in the car – And we’ll go chasing storms
We’ll pull over half way to Goomalling
We’ll get out and let those – Fat rain drops fall
On our skin – On our skin

V2

The river’s all but dry – And I’m starting to wonder – If winter was just my imagination
And I love these hot days – but this kind of weather just makes my madness seem sane

Chorus

Bridge
Rain, rain – Rain, rain
Rain, rain – Rain on me, Rain on me

Repeat V1

Chorus

Bridge x2 to end

Sunburn

Written By: Douglas Watson - Atticus Finch

SUNBURN

V1

A roller coaster – emotions up and down
Arise from the ashes – many fears floating around
Dreaming of you – and of the oceans that we ride
Starting anew – you’re gonna wash my foolish pride

Chorus

I’m gonna get away – where I can see the world turn
There’s only time and space yeah – where I can feel the sun burn
I’m gonna get away – where the moonlights shining
A thousand miles a day yeah – we’re leaving everyone

V2

Five in the morning – we can hear the waves around
Ash in the campfire – glowing coals and empty wine
Hold onto you – and all the times we spend alone
New attitude – and all the pain has turned to stone

Chorus

Verse instrumental

I’ve got a feeling – and I ain’t afraid to say
New resolutions – old habits are melting away
Early to bed now – be the earlier to rise
Goes to our heads now – we’re gonna feel the dawns surprise

Chorus

Verse instrumental to end.
