lyrics

The Old West Pier looks like a spider set against a twilit sky the colour of sweetest port
The kind you liked to drink once
But just one glass, just one, and never on weeknights
Oh Christ, you’re so fucking middle class
I check the weather forecast
And hope for rain

‘Cause course you’ll board that train, yeah, and of course you’ll take his hand
You’ll rent a townhouse by the pier and you’ll take walks across the sand
Down by the bay, down by the bay - day by day
So I’ll just let her get away

Your boy - he’ll be the toast of Soho - your man - and the king of White Cube
There - with all manner of boys upon his arm
Oh - he’ll be on Serota’s rota - your beau - and be in Saatchi’s satchel
Sweet - with a gaggle of girls upon his arm
Boys upon his arm, boys upon his arm, girls upon his arm

Then maybe you’ll find the time to write that novel that you’ve always wanted to write
It used to keep you up all night
‘Cause when he leaves home - leaves you on your own once more
You’ll have all those seeds to sow and reap and time to cry yourself to sleep

Quite simply let her fade away

It’s six months on and still I have recurring dreams - I’m trapped in-between two panes of glass
I’m staring up at you while
I loop the loop, endlessly - me and eight strange gentlemen
I don’t know them but they’re grinning freakishly
And stroking eight au fait goatees

‘Cause of course you’ll board that train, yeah, and of course you’ll take his hand
You’ll rent a townhouse by the pier and you’ll take walks across the sand
Down by the bay - day by day
