Unsung don't say it, touch it, or replay it, it only happens once. So long to last lines, every time's the first time, i'm off to have some fun. A cauldron of potions, drops of the oceans, couldn't solve this one. As luck would have it i'm on the planet, and so it seems are you.

Sometimes i go to Neptune to sing a little song or hum a little tune and i don't know why i go there but i do. I went to Mars the other day, wasnt much there i have to say but i sure was a long way away from you. If you want to track my movements look into space and there you'll see that the Outerspace mover is me. I used to go Pluto but then they said it wasn't so and i felt a kind of celestial malaise. So now i'm off to Mercury to have some fun in the galaxy oh these are the best of all my days. If you want to track my movements look into space and there you'll see that the Outerspace mover is me. I flew to Venus on my spacebike, i had a few walks and i had a few hikes and i didn't meet anybody there . Oh mostly i just glide around and lark about at the speed of sound and take in a bit of cosmic air. If you want to check my movements look into space and there you'll see that the Outerspace mover is me.

Sex death, and landscapes, its all the mistakes and how you did them well. I fell for you in the summer and that was bummer because you left in the spring. Don't sigh, nothing's going to take you away from me girl. You were there all along. An old boy on a park bench, thinking in the past tense, looking for the words. I'll wash my face tomorrow, and for the days that follow i'll do it all again. Don't sigh, nothing's going to take you away from me girl. You were there all along. Sex death, and landscapes, its all the mistakes and how you did them well. I fell for you in the summer and that was bummer because you left in the spring. Don't sigh, nothing's going to take you away from me girl.

oh Ian, the life the life The dusty old books Port on the carpet The stains the stains Oh Ian, the face the face The sense of a lifetime Snap of the old light The room the room Oh Ian i'll bring the old box Where the quiet lies and the time died Oh Ian i'll bring it all for you to see Oh Ian, the words the words Valiant moments Sewed from the old hope The life the life

I didn't walk how you said i should walk, i walk how i do walk, and that's fine I didn't go how you said it would go, it went how it did go, and that's fine. I look out the window somedays,i see a million ways and that's fine I didn't dance how i wanted to dance, i did a bit of prance and that's fine Take your guess, spurious at best, can't you see its all just chaos. I breathe in and then i breathe out, i've got a trillion doubts and that's fine I took a road that wasn't but it was something i chose and that's fine. Take your guess, spurious at best, can't you see its all just chaos. Take your guess, spurious at best, can't you see its all just chaos. I didn't go how you said it would g,o it went how it did go, and that's fine. Take your guess, spurious at best, can't you see its all just chaos.

Why don't you hide and i'll count to ten i hope i don't mess it up by then. Fools rush in but the snail got crushed and i went and lost my cool. Oh i've got some thinking to do. Granny May said 'love is ok but don't let it trouble your flow' Too many candles could finish it off but don't die curious. Oh i've got some thinking to do. I saw some lovers argue on the street like they were in a living room. I was left to figure it out, who ran away with who? Oh i've got some thinking to do. I've got some thinking to do. I've got some thinking to do.

Watching you watching Youtube in the dark The pasta is done. The spirits are little low Sometimes nothing really happens in a day. Sometimes it grows, sometimes it wilts away. So i lie upon the bed look at the stars. So many lives and movements of the souls. Turn off the light say goodnight say goodnight.

Sit at the desk look at the screen think about the girl you could have been ponder your little big mistakes, and the difference they won't make city lights glow for the big show make it a bit of doe do what you know but if you cannot see the stars then you don't know where you are in the universe, really quite large put some perspective in your glass or you better prepare your frown for a life of sitting down your parents had sex maybe you were planned maybe you were told that you were planned but the world can now confirm that you were the quickest sperm you were designed , designed to move so get a move on, sing a little song, pull a rabbit from a hat cos it won't be coming back Lighten up Roy feel a bit of joy, get a bit of romance in your loins, make love in the driving rain and continue the cosmic chain One goes out, one goes in, one's got great cheeky grin one's the captain of the sea don't take it all so seriously. You were the quickest little sperm.

Please come back to me darling I get restless when you're not around. I made a noise with a frying pan but There was no one to receive my sound But that said, that said, i like it when you're gone. That said, that said, i like when you're gone. Took your route to the postbox even though i'm not convinced its the best way. Had a nap under some lonely tree as the sun kissed the day. But that said, that said, i like it when you're gone. That said, that said, i like when you're gone. People talked some nonsense and i listened with blurry eyes. It wasn't as cool as your nonsense and it wasn't under your skies But that said, that said, i like it when you're gone. That said, that said, i like when you're gone.
10.
There isn't nothing, i saw a something, i saw a flicker of all that you were and the words did not say what your face did say. You are a tiger, always a tiger, you found stillness of old from somewhere, and the silence did cover your eyes that night. I want to tell, it's already tomorrow, tomorrow. Call it an ending, call it a nothing, its done and its done for now love, it drifted away away like a piece of cloud. I want to tell you, it's already tomorrow, tomorrow. I want to tell you, there isn't nothing, there isn't nothing

Oh Bob, in the rain, all the pains, of the day. No joy, no hope, no mates, no job, oh Bob. He walks along, falls down, into a puddle, oh soggy Bob. But then a Lizard, a little Lizard, comes to him, Says 'Its gonna be alright Bob, its gonna be alright Bob' Its gonna be alright Bob.

about

Tom Rosenthal's second album 'Who's That In The Fog?' is the follow up to his critically acclaimed 1st album. 'Keep a Private Room Behind the Shop'.

Reviews

"A really wonderful record that sits apart from a lot of what is coming out of the UK right now' (Culture or Trash Review)

'These tracks, supplying knots of folk, jiggle-inducing melodies and crescendos of tingling string goodness. Equal parts gloom and merriment, with no end of sincerity, this album is the ideal accompaniment to crisp autumnal night" (Young Gold Teeth)

"An antidote to malice"(Josie Long, BBC 6 Music)
