Vanish Valley – Become The Night

Found this gravelly three minute pop song on some Captain Obvious mixtape a while back, and it’s a grower :D Will have to pick up a VV album sometime…

Vanish Valley

Turn your telephone pole light on
When I walked up on your lawn*
I was hoping that you could need me
Cos I sure could need you

Well before I, before I become the night
Well before I, before I become the night

This time has come too soon
Fielding eyes when I am sleeping**
Turn this house into my room
Saying goodbye before I’m leaving

Well before I, before I become the night
Well before I, before I become the night

Well those grave-robber’s graves were empty
And those heart-breaker’s hearts were dry
Well before I, before I become the night
Well before I, before I become the night

* = could be “When I walked up on you alone”?!?
** = “Feuding eyes when I am sleeping” or “A few of them eyes when I am sleeping”?!?
I’ve left in the version that makes more sense to me – if you’ve got better ears/deciphering skills than me then please feel free to put me straight!
