about

I wrote the chorus to this in the garden of a house in Fruges, Northern France. I was visiting A Silent Film who were recording a load of demos for their first EP. It didn't take long – the chorus is only really one line and two chords. But as I played it over and over I started to hear the gospel choir and the claps. It's inevitable when you play chords I and IV that you start to hear a gospel choir. Try it.

Given that I had no drums, I decided to combine the silly mouth drumming with tambourine. Half of me thought I'd replace it with a real drum track at some point, but the other (slightly larger) half knew it would stay in. After all, funny is better than good.

lyrics

Everybody wants to live in a bubble bath world
Where nobody can get to them
Everybody wants to live in a bubble bath world
Where they can be their own best friend

Everybody wants to live in a sepia world
Moving time and standing still
Everybody wants to live in a sepia world
Everyone loves time to kill

Everybody wants to live in their favourite film
So they can hear that line again
Everybody wants to live in their favourite film
That ends the same though you watch it
Time and time and time again...

The good guy never dies in sinking sand
The hot girl never stays with the evil man
The hero never walks away alone
Creatures from another planet go back home
Superman always saves the world again
And Elaine always ends up on the bus with Ben

Everybody wants to live in a bubble bath world
Everybody wants to live in a bubble bath world
But nobody has thought about
The wrinkles on their fingers when they get out.
