I Never Knew That You Had Tattoos

from by Lightning Dept.



'I Never Knew That You Had Tattoos' is about being surprised by the actions of a friend. Just when you think you know someone they will always throw you a curve ball...right?!


Time, and one night stands will be the death of love
Will be the death of love
And good, good as that sounds i can't forget
That I'm not strong enough
Smile! We're staying up all night make a wish or ten
That this will never end
And then you, you turn and look at me and with some certainly
i know where this will end...


I never knew that you had tattoos
Lying there naked under silver moon
Whilst i watch the world spin around your room
I never knew that you had tattoos
Falling in lust is just a thing that we do
To deal with the problems that obscure the truth

Life, is a one way ride speeding to
To the other side
So when this weekend goes, I'm gonna go too
Lose myself
Do you wanna come too?

Lightning Dept. Brighton, UK

Lightning Dept. was all started by the misreading of a shop sign. Written over a 3 week period and recorded in just 3 days, 'things KEEP blowing UP' is a fresh, icy blast of pop magic. The bands love of Weezer, Lemonheads and Guided By Voices shines through on this 15 track album which is all over in 32 minutes of clipped majestic indie rock.
Look out for the CD and digital release in March 2012.
