lyrics

Working at the food court Thursday night
She wants tattoos down her back to pump up the fight
She says a bar through her neck will stir up the ring alright
[Chop the tomato and laugh, chop the tomato and laugh]

There’s bite in her smile and eyes more than plastic
All her sentences stretch out like elastic
She blasts metal core, she’s an ’09 drastic
[I chuck and laugh, chuckle and laugh]

Amy’s gonna be a boxer
Swing, swing, swing.

Dropped out of school the moment she could
Was told she’d never live to achieve anything good
Than hanging around, polluting this neighbourhood
[I rinse the dishes and nod, rinse the dishes and nod]

She tells me how her family hurts her head
How most mornings she wakes up in her ex’s bed
And one day these sandwich gloves will be big and red
[I bat an eyelid and nod, bat an eyelid and nod]

Amy’s gonna be a boxer
Swing, swing, swing.

Now I’m at the concert, aching, and I’m staring at the floor
As a room full of feet is staring back at me
It’s silent and it’s distant in the ocean of canvas shoes
And I can’t stop wondering if she’s out there swinging if…

It’s the present day and it’s getting late
There’s no fight left undone, no more ground to be run
Bit of rum to help me sleep, and I’m lying in the dark
After all these years, sympathising with a compulsive liar

Amy’s disappeared off the face of the earth
I searched for you across the web, I even read the local paper
For the sake of all that I could ever aim for in this world
I hope you’re out there pummeling things into water vapour.
