Track Name: Josefina (with Model Village)
Josefina wakes with the sun
She smiles as she feels it
And the sunlight shows her
All the things that she needs are there

In her one hundred years, what has she seen?
What will she leave?

And everything she sees
She casts in the warm stone
If it's peace on earth
Or what each one of us is worth

In your one hundred years, what you will see?
In my one hundred years, what will I see?
What will I leave?
Track Name: The Permanent Way (with Darren Hayman)
I want a quieter movie
Something cut slower
Something less eager

I was Julia, I think her name was Julia
Pretty sure it was Julia
Let's say Julia

I want Julia in 1985
Sheepskin coat, patterned tights
I want Julia and me to see a movie
One that makes me kiss her
I never did

With Denholm Elliott as the hero
Denholm Elliott as the rogue
Denholm Elliott as the butler
And Wendy Padbury as the girl

Denholm Elliott as the landlord
Donald Pleasance as the chaplain
Denholm Elliott cares too much
Wendy Padbury's given in

Denholm steps off a train
He wears a rain mac, he wears brogues
It's a branch line station in 1966
Wendy meets him, wearing T-bar shoes

With Denholm Elliott as the hero
Denholm Elliott as the rogue
Denholm Elliott as the butler
Wendy Padbury as the girl

Denholm Elliott as the landlord
Donald Pleasance as the chaplain
Denholm takes Wendy in his arms
And whispers
"Please be calm"

We can film these dreams as split-screens
You break our hearts with CGI
I want the celluloid to fade as I get older
And Denholm to sing me lullabies
Track Name: Treacle, You Should Probably Go To Sleep (with Simon Love)
I came to
And found you like the night before
Eyes on fire and slowly
Walking through the door
Watching pigeons on
The roof across the street
Treacle, you should probably go to sleep

One night and now I don't know what to do
Flowers sticking to my spin
Called in sick to spend the day wrapped up in you
Diorrhoea must just be the
Best excuse a boy could ever use

Awake, awake
And with a day trip in your sighs
Vampire whirlwind
Too far gone with just goodbye
Told you last night
That you didn't need that creep
Treacle, you should probably go
Treacle, you should probably go
Treacle, you should probably go to sleep
Treacle, you should probably go to sleep
Track Name: East Coast (with Gordon McIntyre of Ballboy)
A straight white line through the east coast night
A voice on the telephone
An old man passes from us
Let's get these bodies home

The coastal road splits the morning air
Takes the salt out of the waves
Hold my hand, kiss me
Before we run out of days

And if I pass away from you
Throw me to the sea
Don't look back at the darkened waves
That take me underneath

And old man at the end
Of all the things he's done and seen
The old man at the edge of the sea

Half the world is on its knees
Waiting for the light
The other half is tooled up
Spoiling for a fight

And the east coast night
And the summer haze
Is all you'll ever need
Young men rise, old men fail
But never really leave

And if I pass away from you
Throw me to the sea
Turn your back on the darkened waves
That rise up to claim me

A straight white line
Through the east coast night
In the early summer haze
An old man and his grandson
Have a parting of the waves

If I pass away from you
Throw me to the sea
Don't look back at the rising waves
That take me underneath
