about

Armour
Armour is about how you can be trucking along happily and then some old memory will come back and leave you feeling vulnerable and defenceless. We first recorded it for the Life Sciences EP but after Phil and Julien joined the band it became a different beast. The new version is a live favourite for the band, and we wanted to
capture what the song had become.

lyrics

Armour J.Gronow

Verse 1
You are the chink in my armour
You are the rust in my steel
You were the edge of the map
The wide-open sea
You were the hungry eyes
The hit of the century
You’re the chink in my armour
The rust in my steel

Verse 2
I was lonely without you
But I was lonely when you were here
Oh, my dark hearted lover
Where have you been?
I was lost for long time
When I thought I was free
You’re the chink in my armour
A wound that won’t heal

Verse 3
I feel the sun in my hair and
the cool ocean breeze
My heart should sing out
In sweet harmony
But ah when you held me
You were the lock and the key
And It’s been search and destroy here, ever since

Verse 4
How do you lie down baby?
Lie down with him
Like some premiership quarter
That I just couldn’t win
I was crazy to think that
I was part of your deal
You’re the chink in my armour
You’re the rust in my steel
