Jonny 'Huddersfield' Helm's first vocal on a Wave Pictures album. This song is very New York to me. Stanley Brinks wrote the lyrics in the canteen on the 2nd floor of Harlem Hospital. Even in a hospital canteen in New York, there is a waitress who will refill your coffee cup for ever. It's a very enigmatic, dark and mysterious lyric, but still peppered with details of the everyday. At the end of the song, the very last phrase is ''everyday sunrise''. I think that a lot of people misunderstand the kind of lyrics that The Wave Pictures like to sing. The point is not that it is interesting to sing about the mundane rather than the magical, but that we find the mundane magical: the everyday amazes me. What could be both more extraordinary and more ordinary than the sunrise? It's all about finding the everyday very beautiful if you look at it in a certain way. I don't have a spiritual bone in my body. I don't understand people when they say ''there must be more than this''. I think there's plenty enough to keep me excited as it is. It's easy for me to wax pretentious about the lyrics of this song because I didn't write them. I hope you'll excuse me. I just really like these lyrics. I like Stanley Brinks' lyrics a lot in general. What did I do? I came up with the riff.
