about

Unique, aren’t we? Every single one of us. Not a clue what anyone else is feeling. None of us.

Someone clever once said that the tragedy of the human condition is that we cannot feel another person’s pain. Maybe. But that doesn’t mean we should stop trying…

lyrics

Nobody Like You

You should be reaching for the stars, but you still can’t find your arse –
With both hands, then you do. There’s nobody like you.
Blunt instructions from sharp tongues have you scraping up the crumbs
To feed the birds on cue. There’s nobody like you.

When your heart’s as big as all of outdoors, it’s hard to keep it dry
And you’ve wrung it out so often, you’ve forgotten why you try.
You’re a 12-stone bag of salty water and each poke makes you cry.
Why you see blue, what you hold true: nobody knows what it feels like to be you.

You’ve been rattling the bars, opening old scars
And pushing every bruise. There’s nobody like you.
Now there’s nowhere left to hide, you’ve swallowed all your pride –
And many other bitters too. There’s nobody like you.

When your heart’s as big as all of outdoors, it’s hard to keep it dry
And you’ve wrung it out so often, you’ve forgotten why you try.
You’re a 12-stone bag of salty water and each poke makes you cry.
Why you see blue, what you hold true: nobody knows what it feels like to be you.

When it pumps so hard you can’t stop anx, no matter what try
And every call reminds you of the one you made as a manchild.
Always looking back, can’t see the good in what you do.
Nobody knows what it feels like to be you – think no one knows, well I do.
