Brutalism By The River (Arrhythmia)

from Love Keeps Kicking by Martha



This song refers to Dunelm House and Kingsgate Bridge (designed by Ove Arup), situated on the banks of the River Wear in Durham. At present Durham University have plans to demolish the building. Join the campaign to stop that from happening (follow @SaveDunelmHouse on twitter).


Kathy I love this kid,
Runs so much faster than I ever did,
Crossed the globe and started as an intern,
At an indie label in a downturn,
Folded over the corner of the page,
Lit the spark and stormed the stage,
Left your friends in Fortitude Valley,
Joined a band and nailed the finale,

My heart was in arrhythmia when I saw you,
Standing silhouetted on Maple Avenue,
I felt trouble brewing, I felt the planet shake,
But I went along anyway,

In the hazy orange light,
Underneath the viaduct that night,
I had to change my tune to spare my blushes,
If this were a movie and this was the start,
Would it be a cliché part?
Cause I am far too old for foolish crushes.

So come and visit for the weekend,
Brutalism by the river with a new friend,
No secrets, no shame,
Falling in love is a dangerous game to play.
