lyrics

I came across your car down on Underlane
A broken light and a smashed up window pane

Then I found you tiptoeing slowly round Michael's garden
He wasn't worried now
He came outside, offered his sofa to you
While I struggled to take off your shoes

Taking in my shirt because I'm not XL
You know how a needle works and you use it well

I close in on thirty straight victories
One last rush consigns you to history
Instant transfer, you're in your place until I invite you to form a reply

Thirty feet of recycled sail cloth
Edges closer to the incoming ocean froth

Walking barefoot down on the beach I saw
Burning feet, he's off to the hospital
Plastic bag of water to sooth a mistake
And Michael he slowly awakes
