about

All tracks written and recorded by Matthew Coin at 'home' in Mardi Bycroft's garage where he lived circa 2016-17. A space affectionately known as 'The Cabin"

lyrics

Ninety-nine percent of the men in this room
Want to lay their heads on a bed next to you
Oh and you hold them all believers
But they don’t know your secret
And it’s better if you keep it

Because the mystery is all you need
But your eyes tell me something
Your love’s never seen
And you stare at this hole
Where your heart used to be
Waitin on a ghost

Young ambition is scolding fire
You best be careful what you get close to child
And I’m not the only one who can feel you from a distance
And I can tell because I’ve seen this
That it’s better to burn to keep them warm
Than just for the sake of your own flame

And your tongue is so sweet
But you’re a bruised and bitter fruit
There’s a lot a wasted curiosity
Around you

Where the mystery is all you need
But your eyes tell me something
Your love’s never seen
And you stare at this hole
Where your heart used to be
Waitin on a ghost

You’re just waitin
For a bus that will never come
Waitin on a ghost
