this tack is part of a 3 song medley

part of the Dowry EP, written on Dowry Place, on Hotwells Road in Bristol, first performed in the scout hut, Bristol, recorded by Phil Dodd on Hermitage Street, Cheltenham.


Pushed up the hill
then flying down the hill.
Knees touching grasses
frozen blades
Our boots start to steam
when we reach the gym
and record our place
thirty sixth

Do you remember
that special sort of rain
that freezes your cheeks
and hurts your brain?

We dangled out feet
by the sides of the stream.
We won’t lose our feet ever.
There was a tree bridge
though it’s branches were filled
with bags of dog shit.


from Dowry, released May 11, 2011
