Track Name: Different Name
what if we woke up
with a different name
and both our names
were spelt the same

what if we woke up
with a different body
with the one open eye
feeling hungry

for a striptease in a new skin that stops once and starts again to a rhythm played on your knees there’s a strange tone from the new voice it sings an old song from a musical in two part harmony it says ‘you have the love that i need so much and you have the skin that i love to touch and from this moment on…’

what if we woke up
with a different brain
and both our brains
were tuned the same

to a jackdaw on a roof top with its wings flexed for a take off flaunting all its liberty as cushions cripple tableware and bodies caught in mid air try in vainest mimicry theyre singing ‘please don’t pass me over love i’ve been a lover i’ve just found it hard to breathe please don’t pass me over love i’ve been a lover of all your ten thousand things, please don’t pass me over love i’ve been a lover there were simply other needs please don’t pass me over love i’ve been a lover god and i agree please don’t pass me over love i’ve been a lover like seagull hits the sea, please don’t pass me over love i’ve been a lover have i used it wrecklessly please don’t pass me over love i’ve been a lover i’ve just found it hard to breathe



the lyrics of different name contain a lose quotation of cole porter’s ‘from this moment on’
