"Hand Hold Hero is LUMP’s most intriguing convergence of aesthetics. Marling delivers steely talking blues over synth arpeggios in the style of Giorgio Moroder. Her voice is so languid and so noirish in its huskiness, it’s as though she’s exhaling cigarette smoke that curls into words mid-air. As Lindsay deploys compact blasts of static, she mocks the banal trappings of a comfortable existence: 'Money didn’t buy you nothing at all,' Marling groans. 'Accept a ball for your chain.'"
---- Madison Bloom, Pitchfork

Hand Hold Hero

LUMP - (Laura Marling and Mark Lindsay)

Hand hold hero
Hand hold hero

Oh my back to the wall
Better that than trip and fall
Money didn't buy you nothing at all
'Cept a ball for your chain

Oh my, save your soul
Cut your hair by the rim of a bowl
Don't buy nothing you're being sold
I told you once and again

Hey there, sister Lou
How you doing, what you do?
Your father was a gambler, too
Well, the boards are good for playing

Frightful suburban sport
But there we are, takes all sorts
You can't complain, once you been bored
And it taught you some restraint

Hand hold hero
I choose to always be there for you
Hand hold hero
I choose to always be there for you
Hand hold hero
Hand hold hero
Hand hold hero

Quick to church, quick to play
Choose that beat before it stains
It tastes so sweet by another name
And your lover will quell the pain

Hey man, I know you
How's your brother, how's your blue
How's your shallow walking shoes
Do they hurt you just the same?

Hey there, sister Lou
How you doing, what you do?
Your father was a gambler, too
Well, the boards are good for playing

Frightful suburban sport
But there we are, takes all sorts
You can't complain, once you been bored
And it taught you some restraint

Hand hold hero
I choose to - I choose to always be there for you
Hand hold hero
I choose to - I choose to always be there for you
Hand hold hero
I choose - I choose to always be there for you
Hand hold hero
