  • The tipping of scales
    And the balance of time precede it

    The ticking of clocks
    In silent homes admit it
    Larks ascending
    Clash with planes

    O my soul, what will I do to feed them
    Nothing inside, nothing outside
    Nothing in the kitchen
    What I'm left with, I don't know

    Spend all your life just to find out
    All that matters is close to you

    The people you know
    The things that you're shown
    That shape our views

    The places you've been
    To follow a dream
    In shades of blue

    Oh
    Ooh, ooh

    And in a small side street
    Of contemplation
    He lost it

    An' in the late night bars
    Of annihilation
    He lost it

    The truth is that "it"
    Wasn't his to lose

    Spend all your life
    Just to find out
    All that matters
    Is close to you

    The people you know
    The things that you show
    Shape our views

    The places you've been
    To follow a dream
    In shades of blue

    Oh, oh

    The people you know
    The things that you show
    That shape our views

    The places you've been
    To follow a dream
    In shades of blue Writer/s: Leah Weller, Paul Weller
