lyrics

I’ve just returned, from over the seas
Feelin’ like I caught a disease, the worlds gone under the ether
Came in with the wind, now I’m shell-shocked and dazed
Been sailin’ round this room for days
Christ what am I doing here
Then all of a sudden, from round the corner of the corridor
Had you seen what I saw, you would have sung like me
You would have been singin’

Oh dear my dear, you come a long way to get down here
Some folks are a crash that’ll send you sober
Oh dear my dear, you’ll slip through my fingers I fear
I shouldn’t pick ya up cause I’ll let ya down

Oh kid I fear you’re gunna be the wreck of me
I can’t keep my hands steady, I can’t think that clear.
You up and you left, just like I knew that you would
Now I’m drinking more than I should, cause at night I can still hear you leaving
But I still sit and I stare down that corridor
But you’re never there anymore
But sometimes, sometimes late at night I still think I see ya there

I wish it weren’t true, cause now what am I gunna do.
I’m feeling like a dog ‘bout to get put down
Cause I don’t want to find another one just like you
Another one of you that’ll let me down, let me down, let me down…..

Doctor, you saved me from catastrophe
Ground me better than gravity, you keep my head out of the water
And it breaks my heart that you’re no longer around
I’d rather run the easting down than see you go like love in the winter.
But like they say every dog must have his day
It’s just that sometimes, sometimes it never really seems to feel that way

It’ll be a tough year, cause this time you won’t be here.
You threw me a rope when most would let me drown
I’ll do what I can, I’ll try and stay in the clear
I never was a saint but I’ll try…
I’ll try not to let ya down, let ya down, let ya down, let ya down…..
