Housing (in)

Album: Pedestrian Verse (2013)
  • Hear the dull drum roll
    Of the Great North Eastern line’s
    Coupled carriage ticking like
    My metronome
    And see that housing glow
    A skyline of cheap gold
    And crooked teeth I will call home
    For a day or so

    You can’t carry me away now
    Please don’t steal me from my house
    You can’t carry me away now
    I have just laid my head down
    You can’t carry me away now
    Please don’t steal me from my house
    You can’t carry me don’t steal me from my house

    Inside that housing glow
    I stiffen my tired shoes
    With the starch of family food
    Oh I’ve missed you so

    You can’t carry me away now
    Please don’t steal me from my house
    You can’t carry me away now
    I have just laid my head down
    You can’t carry me away now
    Please don’t steal me from my house
    You can’t carry me don’t steal me from my house Writer/s: ANDY MONAGHAN, DAVID WILLIAM LAWRENCE KENNEDY, GRANT DAVID HUTCHISON, RUSSELL GORDON SKENE, SCOTT JOHN HUTCHISON
