Falling for and far tonight
You and yours and my handsome wife
That divil just went and stole the show
So I’m letting every gold hair grow
Nothing like a kiss goodnight
It tastes like ‘til the day I die

Oh I wish I could have known
I’m the one that never gets old
This sore sad city never skips a beat
While I'm sitting sweet in the passenger seat
Going home and growing strong
The silence is so soft
I’m gonna be free

I was young and I was honest
Me and all your father’s daughters
Laid beside the tide to take us
Kissed the bride and fought your favours
I may not be the wife you want
But I’m pregnant with the virgin tongue

Pave the way for calm to come
With all the pace of Sundays gone
It’s too bad surely to admit defeat
With these hands so neat between my teeth
‘Til the right man comes along, singing the right song
But when the right man comes along, singing the right song
It’s gonna be me


released June 12, 2020
Handsome Wife was produced by Tommy McLaughlin in Attica studios. Mastered by Katie Tavini
