about

This is one of two live acoustic songs we performed at St. Bartholomew's Church with Minster Studios in June 2013. The recording was filmed and there is a video on YouTube. Look it up, as it really is a beautiful church.

The original version of Powerful Pill is on our Molehills Out Of Mountains album.

lyrics

Lyrics:
Cruelty overwhelming
At the turning of the year
Hoping that the tide will turn
And luck falls somewhere near

Separately dreaming
That some things will be fair
Sleeping in the open air in the shadow of the stairs

And these roads we take as we come back home
Are the same roads we take all the year
And the love we made on those Saturdays
Is the same love now filled with tears

Saying that you’re lonely
Is that hardest thing to do
Denying it’s significant is the easiest thing to choose

We’re filling all the gaps in
We’re dosing up on gin
But this medicine’s a mile away from resuscitating me

And these friends we made to our sorry song
Are the same friends that offer us cheer
And the hope that stretched to those better days
Is the same hope now tinged with fear

But you mustn’t give up
Cos I need you now
You mustn’t give up
I don’t want you to know
Mustn’t give up
‘till we know for sure
You say you love me

We’re drinking all the coffee
Forgetting all the week
Friday night’s a keepsake
But then Sunday’s fucking bleak

And these bonds we made with our history
Are the same bonds that bind us still
And the kindness shown with it sympathy
Is the same kindness as a powerful pill

But you mustn’t give up
Cos I need you now
You mustn’t give up
I don’t want you to know
Mustn’t give up
‘till we know for sure
You say you love me
But I still don’t know
