If he still sounds semi-conscious half the time, so be it
Damon Gough could put his shopping list to music and it would still sound like he'd hit a nerve. "I need a new eiderdown", he croons on the title track, just to rub it in. This is his art: making the little things seem worthy of celebration (hence the title: his pet goldfish will clearly be delighted). Expectations are there to be confounded. Having gained a reputation...

You look a lot, lot better tonight
You and I should go out for a fight
We need a holiday
But not today, another day
Something you're not sure of
Something you're not sure of
There's something you're not sure of
This thing you're not sure of
I'm turning the lights down low, ready to make my move
Get you' tickets to what you need
I'm treading the borderlines and ruining people's lives
By giving them what they need
Starting today we're on holiday
Everybody sees you in the wrong way
No one else sees you my way
Sometimes I need your body next to mine
I could draw us an imaginary line, I'm
Just don't breath, I don't need your allergies
I am falling out of bed not out of love, love
One, two, three, four
What if there is nothing else for us after all this?
I don't care, I don't mind, just as long as we find some time
The keys to your heart
Open the door to the world
You've got to give me two days
And woman I'll make you a girl
"And folks if you take a look out the right side of the plane
You see a cloud that looks exactly like Badly Drawn Boy"
"Oh my God"
Maybe there's a reason
Why I'm born again
There's something rare
Going on under my skies
Goodnight my answer, your dreams are still sweet
Goodnight, be careful with yourself
Don't worry about the money, forget about the wealth
Are landing at my feet
There's nothing I can see
So now that life will never be the same
We've got to face the thought of loneliness again
Try and get inside your lover's brain
Drag an old romance from dirty ditch, and then
