lyrics

Monday to Sunday
I’m home and away at the same time
I travel on gravel
I fly with the other odd airline
I get to know girls and I share time with them

Lizzy feels dizzy
A free-lancing, hard working lawyer
Sandy likes shandy
And’d rather be free like Tom Sawyer
But lives to work for her employer instead

Still in my head
I can hear how she said
You are a friend
Of all I’ve met
Who’d have ever said that
I never saw anyone ever again

Spent trips with friendships
That lasted as long as the journey
I think that my shrink
Would honestly like to deter me
From having their problems concern me too much

I’m wondering what you do today
Are you someone’s wife?
In other words, are you still alive?

“Piano, bass and drums – I don’t think I really need any other instruments!” said Erk when he started back in 2003. Since then he has evolved his sound and music, but still keeps it simple!
