Thomston – Second To You

The London-born singer’s follow up to his attention-grabbing debut School Night provided the perfect showcase for Thomston’s acutely nuanced, falsetto-flecked vocals and astute, self-realised lyrics, all pinned against a backdrop of atmospheric, downbeat electronica. I was lucky enough to attend Thomston’s first live showcase back in August where his seamlessly vulnerable and intense material was brought to life by an engaging and carefully considered, artistic stage presence so it’s no surprise then that, a few months down the line…

Thomston - Second To You

Thomston – Second To You

Thomston – Second To You Lyrics:
You were a dead weight. You spoke a language.
I couldn’t translate. I was your stronghold.
That place you’d run to
Bask in your glory, reflections in the swimming pool.
Despite in every tribute that I paid.
And every hour that I gave ya.
Drain my mind and use it in place.
To take another step up that ladder.
And even though I put you first,
(I’m always second to you. I’m always second to you.)
And oh I’ve seen you at your worst.
(I’m always second to you. I’m always second to you.)
And even though I’ll put you first,
(I’m always second to you.)
And oh I’ve seen you at your worst.
(I’m always second to you. I’m always second to you.)
I was your first date.
Just like your next of kin.
All of your problems, That I inherited.
They maybe heavy.
I should have cared less.
You wouldn’t notice but your self-obsessed.
Inspite of every mile that I walked.
And every lonely weekday evening.
You found a way to keep me hanging on.
Even though you were so self-serving.
And even though I put you first,
(I’m always second to you. I’m always second to you.)
Oh I’ve seen you at your worst.
(I’m always second to you. I’m always second to you)
Oh and even though I put you first,
(I’m always second to you.)
Oh I’ve see you at your worst.
(I’m always second to you. I’m always second to you)
Your worth is frail.
I’d hate for it to break.
Holding you together,
It was my first mistake.
Your worth is frail.
I’d hate for it to break.
Holding you together,
Never again.
(I’m always second to you. I’m always second to you. I’m always second to you. I’m always second to you)
Ohhh, And even though I put you first,
(I’m always second to you.)
Oh I’ve seen you at your worst.
(I’m always second to you. I’m always second to you.)
