lyrics

Sky’s turning gray, and it’s still only August,
Fading away like a late summer breeze.
Night’s falling faster, and mourning’s upon us
With cracks in the plaster and holes in our jeans.

Sweet autumn rot, I can feel her breathing,
Here next to me, though she’s slipping away.
She’s all I’ve got, and she’s joked about leaving
As the smile disappears from her face every day.

West Philly bedroom been spinning all night,
Looking for headroom and maybe a fight.
Tossing and turning, I’m sick of this flight,
West Philly bedroom been spinning all night.

Down on the street, she is already planning,
A game of regret we’ve both been through before.
This time around, there’ll be no one left standing,
One kiss goodbye as she walks out the door.

West Philly bedroom been spinning all night,
Looking for headroom and maybe a fight.
Tossing and turning, I’m sick of this flight,
West Philly bedroom been spinning all night.

Sky’s growing darker as I walk the pavement,
Leafing through thoughts like a book of pressed flowers,
Tracing my steps to the home that she gave me,
West Philly bedroom we used to call ours.

West Philly bedroom been spinning all night,
Looking for headroom and maybe a fight.
Tossing and turning, I’m sick of this flight,
West Philly bedroom been spinning all night.

about

Zapatero Havertown, Pennsylvania

“Sometimes verging on the experimental, else playing in the middle of the dance-floor… Zapatero is a musician who creates music simply for the joy of making music, to get away from the mundanities of life, which gives his songs their honesty and vitality, making them such a delight to hear.” – Tim Whale, Emerging Indie Bands ... more
