lyrics

As a boy, I believed
That the nuclear plant was the factory
Where they made all the clouds
Cause I could see them all floating out
So I believed

But now I don’t
Now I don't
Now I don’t

And my darling girl, what did we see?
Pink flamingos in a corn field
You were crying out
We were crying out
I thought the world was ours
I thought world was ours

But now I don’t
Now I don't
Now I don’t
Now I don’t
Now I don’t

From the corner of that tiny balcony
You could look out across the town past the cemetery
Watch them all go to work
Till the day they’re all laid to rest
I thought that I was different

But now I don’t
Now I don't
Now I don't
Now I don't
Now I don't

And my darling girl
You grew up without me
Still I see you visit
You sit so quietly
And darling I’m sorry
And I worried
That you would be alright, yeah I worried

But now I don’t

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.
