Lyrics

i met him outside a hostel door
he said i'll tell you mine if you tell me yours
i know you think its shifty
for a man in his fifties
to be sleeping in a hostel dorm
but i used to be a welder by trade
used to work by the water where the ships get made
but no ship yard will take me now
my hands are too shaky now
and i've spent all my money before i get paid

well i said david don't you think its strange,
while you were sleeping how the world went and changed
looking in your eyes i think you know
david we lost you
we lost you a long time ago

he leans his head a against a hostel wall
said i've an ex wife that doesn't hear me
and a kid that doesn't call
and every month i'm caught short
with my sodding child support
and the court says that i'm reckless and irresponsible
see it was never part of the plan,
to be a middle aged man
to be sat outside a hostel shaking strangers hands
but i've drunk away my wealth
and I'm a picture of bad health
and i'm a shadow of a shadow of a former self

and i said david don't you think its strange,
while you were walking how the world went and changed
i hear it in your voice i think you know
david we lost you
we lost you a long time ago

well i said david don't you think its strange,
while you were in your dark room how the world went and changed
looking in your eyes i think you know
david we lost you
we lost you a long time ago
