    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Physical CD in a card sleeve for those people who really just have to have the physical album instead of the digital one. It's not the snazzy limited edition version, with the hand-printed digipack cover, but it's a disc and artwork, and it's quite pretty.

    If you want it signed, or anything like that, just tweet me @misterebby or use the contact link, which should be over on the right of your screen.

    A postcard featuring the album art, with a short note from myself, and a download code for my debut album "Wires".

    Buy it for a friend as a present and they'll get a surprise of a postcard note from me with a copy of the record to download.

    There's only a very limited number of these postcards with a download code, but they're lovely.

lyrics

It's you and me, and the street cleaners,
And the seagulls scuffling for scraps,
Even Supermacs is closed, and the sun's long up,
But we don't notice, and I say,

I really like your boyfriend, and I don't want to break you up, but I really wanna be kissing you.
He's quite a perfect boyfriend, who calls you every day, just to make sure everything's ok,
He's handsome and kind, with an astute mind,
He's polite and he's sweet,
He's like a teddy bear with gell in his hair, and he always says hello when we meet.
But you have the greenest eyes, and the sweetest smile,
You have the greenest eyes, and the sweetest smile,
Is this what they call romance?

It's you and me, and the street cleaners,
And the jerky puppet head of people half asleep,
They're waiting on the first bus home, and staring at the shop fronts, noses pressed against the glass.

I really like your girlfriend, I know you don't swing my way, but I really wanna be kissing you,
She's quite the perfect girlfriend, who calls you every day, just to make sure everything's ok,
She's beautiful and kind with an astute mind,
She's polite and she's sweet,
She's like a supermodel with long blonde hair, and she always says hello when we meet,
But you have the greenest eyes, and the sweetest smile,
You have the greenest eyes, and the sweetest smile,
Is this what they call romance?

You'll find me in the dark, in shadows I steal away,
When the blackness surrounds you, come and stay.
I walk around with my glasses off to romanticise the world,
When you've nothing left to say - hide a while with me.

It's you, and me,
Just you, and me.
You, me, and the street cleaners - is this what they call romance?
You, me, and the street cleaners - is this what they call romance?
Oh, is this what they call romance?
