about

The old fella never spoke much. And the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I'm much better at listening now, though.

lyrics

It’s late night in my bedroom
The Woodman’s closed, you’ve managed
Just to make sense of your day
Time to listen

About the plan to pack in
The big-money job and start up small
To try and get away from the pressure, from the strain
I should have listened

I want to live in a world where you stayed
I need your belief but it’s too late to pray
I saw your old photo the other day
I was staring back at me

Same sparrow legs, same thinning hair
Same distant look, like you don’t want to be there
A fag on the go ‘cos it’s something to do
I don’t know what to make of you

My mind’s cast back to a time when
You took apart my bass guitar
To try and prove a point
I should have listened

I’d smashed my cricket bat in anger
Couldn’t score a run unable to express myself
Ashamed I couldn’t tell you
Still you put my bass back together again

I want to live in a world where you stayed
I need your belief but it’s too late to pray
I saw your old photo the other day
I was staring back at me

Same sparrow legs, same thinning hair
Same distant look, like you don’t want to be there
A fag on the go ‘cos it’s something to do
I don’t know what to make of you
Or me
