Busby Marou : I Still Don’t Believe


How’s this for lyrics in the poorest possible taste: “When you walked in the room, my voicebox headed south / I swallowed all my silence and couldn’t help to think / Little did my girlfriend know you would be the reason we’d split.” They sneak this line in amongst the beige strumming of acoustic guitar and the Jack Johnson-esque relaxation mode songwriting – good old Thomas Busby singing about ditching his girlfriend because a hotter girl walked into the room. This is a love song, did I mention? Obviously it’s not about the ex-girlfriend. She was just a convenient throwaway lyric. Mostly it’s about how much Tom pines after the hot chick, Abigail, who doesn’t love him back. Can’t think why.
