An early home-studio hybrid demo of the song "The Coronation Show," which was later included on the album Arms Down.


Under your breath
Over the phone
Out of your depth and the debts you owe
The hand you hold could make foreign nations fold

You're keeping it close
Till somebody holds you down and you tell him all you know
You're free to go

Alighting alone
Where do you go when you can't call home?
Your friends are bold to have you curtseying on coals

You write what you know, and rightly so
You reach out across the room and the conversation slows

Under your breath
Over the phone
I'm at my best and you're on your own
The hand you hold couldn't salvage what was sold

You're dressed for the throne
But somebody stole your crown at the coronation show
You won't let go
Over and below the words you chose
