lyrics

Another Sunday morning spent laying in your bed
Watching as the curtains painted flowers on your legs
But there’s no rest for the wicked, you made that coffee strong
And we ran out into the world thinking nothing could go wrong

We were kissing at the station when someone called your name
And you didn’t introduce me but I caught that look he gave you
I watched you try to hide it but it was written on your face
I guess everyone’s got secrets and I learned I was yours that day

But I’ll stop dwelling on the things that I can’t change
Sometimes love is better when it fades
But a little part of my heart still always breaks
When I hear someone calling her name

“Can I see you on the weekend?” is all your message said
And I stared at it a long time before I sent back yes
And we got drunk at Lefty’s dancing to the band
Until you got us both kicked out hell here we go again

You said you knew a party and as you led me there
That maybe that you loved me and it was more than you could bear
And there’s a billboard by the river that says “Love’s a magic spell”
I guess it wore off at that party when you left with someone else

But I’ll stop dwelling on the things that I can’t change
Sometimes love is better when it fades
But a little part of my heart still always breaks
When I hear someone calling her name
When I hear someone calling her name

about

Steve Wallis Paris, France

Steve Wallis writes honest, clear eyed folk songs, driven by his shrewd fingerstyle guitar, and his wry gift for finding joy in the melancholy. His songs are old letters from ex lovers, regrets folded into fond souvenirs, that final glance back before rushing onwards.

In 2018, Steve's song 'Melbourne Rain' reached new success after it was featured in PS4 game Detroit: Become Human.
