Hear the station bell ring, hear the locomotive's steam engine roar, hear the hearts break inside three-piece suits and girdled chests.

This is the title track off Swedish indie-folk outfit Heart-Sick Groans' long awaited new EP.

Don't miss the dreamy western tale music video:


Lyrics by J Brännström/H Wallmark

Putting up your hair with your scarf, in a knot
I want to touch your neck, but I'm not
You're putting on your face while I'll pour some scotch
A last glimpse at the gold watch

A book with letters set in your black hair
Each letter cut from your curls

I'd read it through if you would care
You just say you care
You just say you care

A single breath
Goes through your chest
And cleans our book from text

Putting down your suitcase on the floor of the train
I wish i rode it with you, but that's changed
I step out and think that your voice chimes my name, but its
The last call from the station clock

How come you say
"It's always best to write with the sun in your eyes
with lovers passing by"

Little do you mean
Black Hair Typography
Just a lover passing by
