about

Toothless grin is about the fire that burnt down the local news agency/chemist/coffee lounge by arson.
This is my tribute to the people that were affected by the fire and is a reflection if the shock the community felt.
This is a duet version of the song featuring the wonderful Sophie Thorn.
Wonderfully worked and produced by James Fox Higgins.

lyrics

TOOTHLESS GRIN
Sad sad Monday, walking around a sad sad town
It was supposed to be a set up day, now it all seems to be falling down
Sometimes it seems you never can win, No matter how hard you try
The scenery has had a change, It don't seem right as I go driving by
Time to rebuild this part of town,
Bricks and mortar can come alive
Theres a gap at that corner now
But old thoughts will survive

I am walking down the mainstream to the harbour downtown
Its a bit like a toothless grin, where buy our newspapers from now?

Chasing memories down at Devils Gap, How do we create some more?
Feeling the tragedy of how it was, saw the ship laid up on the shore
Watched the breakers from across the leads
stared at the lighthouse on the hill
If its a beacon that lights the way
May the light keep shining still

I am walking up the mainstream, to the harbour down town
Its bit like toothless grin, gonna miss that downstairs lounge
I am waking down the mainstream to the harbour down town
Its a bit like a toothless grin, where do we get our meds from now?

Now it looks like a combat zone and Wire would be appalled
So glad you made it out tip toeing out the back door
Flames will be replaced by hope, the afterglow by the rise of dawn
There is a hole on this town, but this town, will smile forever more
This town, this town will smile forever more, more
Smile, smile, smile forever more

I am walking up the mainstream to the harbour down town
Its a bit like a toothless grin, who's gonna wear that thorny crown?
