Why It Was So

lyrics

VERSE ONE - ENO

school's out it so outrageous
caution to the wind inspired us to write pages
on pages for days it's what brings us to this night
another episode swerving in Sham's ride

sensors wired "Cammeray Cleansing" sensing
an immense thing growing it's tempting
to dream that these trees could be swaying fans
I high five the leaves with an outstretched hand

zoom flash flash from the telegraph lights
boom flash flash red carpet camera nights ha
what am I thinking what is this
one rap one track backed by Souls of Mischief

but fuck it I live this cold wind in my face
cleanses all worries like my mums decay
the car swerves away and I relax with this movement
wishing time would stay with my friends and this music


HOOK - TIFFA

here I go here I go again
reminiscing about the times
when we would make love to the music
oh the music yeah the music
here I go again


VERSE TWO - FLIP+SKIP

imagine this no one bothered to show
no wonder once prominent promoters don't wanna know
what a fallacy what an abominable travesty
two records deep strobe blinking erratically

on... off on a flash in my eyes
off... on off the blackness of night
on I manage my time off I passively while it away
misguidedly driving my aims to actualise and say

"put your hands up" and ten thousand wave
and each hand waved translates to album sales
and be a household name determination
versus a worthless tirade certainty wains

delusions confuse my paternity case
still only human still only Terry Newman
disillusioned I don't honestly know
if music's worth pursuing I ponder the strobe ayo


HOOK - TIFFA

here I go here I go again
reminiscing about the times
where we would make love to the music
oh the music yeah the music

here I go again
wishing we could go back again
but memories
memories make fickle friends


BRIDGE - TIFFA
I
think will turn out sublimely
at least in my daydreams
at least in my daydreams

life
is turning out peachy
at least in my daydreams
at least in my daydreams


VERSE THREE - JPLATNUM

snapshots in my mind four years since it all ceased
London Olympics 206 third release
we toured spots overseas but had to pay plane fares
it was testing finances and patience were stretching

'til finally the crew's renting
inevitably split directions seeking different objectives
and oh how perspectives grew
like Flip's baby boy life's rich but needs focus to view

but enough snapshots it's time to open eyes
and reconverge four minds at the crew's old spot
Tiff's singing is hot Eno's business boomin
but we all felt a beacon bright and consuming it

burned so strong guide us back to the music
burned so long seared away the confusion
gave clarity to the thing we were missing
creativity four minds together in fusion

and so the collab starts on another collusion
and what we're embarking upon yeah we know
a last project one last project
a single track that explains just why it was so


HOOK - TIFFA

here I go here I go again
reminiscing about the times
where we would make love to the music
oh the music yeah the music

here I go again
wishing we could go back again
but memories
memories make fickle friends

here I go here I go again
reminiscing about the times
where we would make love to the music
oh the music yeah the music

here I go again
wishing we could go back again
but memories
memories make fickle friends
