lyrics

A knife within, unsettled seas, the haunted trees
You leave me in, calling out the numbers neath the skies
Your diamond eyes, which slit my soul,
And take it all, for my love, for my love well it only comes and it burns away, tonight

And now my years have past
So elegantly wasted
On love which never lasts

Flaws endorse my sight
So elegantly wasted
On words like 'if' or 'might'
On words like ‘if’ or ‘might’

A wayward storm, of misty peaks, the city sleeps
Stripped of form, praying for an answer amongst the lies
Our bitter cries, we rise and fall
And take it all, for my love, for my love well it only comes and it burns away, tonight

And now my years have past
So elegantly wasted
On love which never lasts

Flaws endorse my sight
So elegantly wasted
On words like 'if' or 'might'

On words like ‘if’ or..
And god only knows, where my friends and my foes really rest
And god only knows, who is weak and who knows best
And god only knows, whose tears she has tasted
When we were close but we were elegantly wasted
And god only knows whose tears she has tasted
When we were close but we were elegantly wasted
So elegantly wasted

And god only knows, whose tears she has tasted
When we were close but we were elegantly wasted

And god only knows, where my friends and my foes really rest
And god only knows, who is weak and who knows best
And god only knows, whose tears she has tasted
When we were close but we were elegantly wasted, so elegantly wasted

And god only knows, whose tears she has tasted
When we were close but we were elegantly wasted, so elegantly, wasted

about

The High & Lonesome Sydney, Australia

Mutual friends brought together by the influence and love for powerful music, whether it be the sounds of The Smiths, Joy Division, Nick Cave, Led Zepplin, The National, or INXS etc. Drawing inspiration from older music mixed with some modern post-punk techniques, the band produces a wall of sound, all pieced together by the singer and his baritone voice. ... more
