and thats it!


just an amazing track. joey cape is the absolute king.
The album this song is off is mad, so if you've only
heard this song, get the album. my other fav song off
it is "not a dull moment" and if ure looking
for some new tracks, try and get hold of armchair
martian version of "You Deserve This".
