Courtney Barnett - Depreston Lyrics

You said we should look out further, I guess it wouldn't hurt us
We don't have to be around all these coffee shops
Now we've got that percolator, neva made a latte greater
I'm savin' twenty three dollars a week

We drive to a house in Preston, we see police arresting
A man with his hand in a bag
How's that for first impressions? This place seems depressin'
It's a Californian bungalow in a cul de sac

It's got a lovely garden, a garage for two cars to park in
Or a lotta room for storage if you've just got one
And it's goin' pretty cheap u say, well it's a deceased estate
Aren't the pressed metal ceilings great?

Then I see the handrail in the shower, a collection of those canisters for coffee tea and flour
And a photo of a young man in a van in Vietnam
And I can't think of floorboards anymo', whetha the front room faces south or north
And I wonder what she bought it fo'

If you've got a spare half a million
You could knock it down and start rebuilding
If you've got a spare half a million
You could knock it down and start rebuilding
If you've got a spare half a million
You could knock it down and start rebuilding
