lyrics

My mama always did her best for me
I grew up on a quiet street
Straight out of school up the woods barefeet
Having a smoke down the shop discreet

I wasn’t bad but I wasn’t that good
I didn’t always do the things I should
Too loud too proud too rude
Full speed ahead down a dead end route.
(things just stay the same)

You tell me
You’ve been gone for so long why don’t you stay a while?
I miss carrying on like I was just a child.
Something about you makes me wish that I wasn’t me.
But I don’t wanna change

I took a trip to the end of the street
I’ve been known for being indiscrete
Felt to me like I’d been gone for a week
But I was back home in time for my tea.

I had dreams of being far away
Making my path in a different way
Sometimes it’s hard to appreciate
The things you have till they’re gone away
(things just stay the same)

You tell me
You’ve been gone for so long why don’t you stay a while?
I miss carrying on like I was just a child.
Something about you makes me wish that I wasn’t me.
I tell you
If I sit here a while will you just talk to me
I need time to remember what I’m doing here
Something about you makes me wish that I wasn’t me.

But I don’t wanna change
When I first left, home wasn’t somewhere I could place
Now I’m on the train from Glasgow over to the west coast hey yeah
Walking down the street man I know every beat and face
Bring my memories round and round like a mixtape.

You tell me
You’ve been gone for so long why don’t you stay a while?
I miss carrying on like I was just a child.
Something about you makes me wish that I wasn’t me.
I tell you
If I sit here a while will you just talk to me
I need time to remember what I’m doing here
Something about you makes me wish that I wasn’t me.
