  • Makeshift purple kitchens
    And chip shop birthdays there with no nothings
    Second hand but I don't mind
    Scouring the papers at Christmas time

    Where the gym was and the garage
    And rows of stale marriage
    No hand was as good as mine
    Janet and John and fish cakes fry

    And when it mattered, and it always did
    At least we lived
    And when it mattered, of course, it did
    At least we lived
    At least we lived

    School and houses mangle
    In bricks and lanes of this is jail
    Garages and pebbles chime
    Asbestos acorn trees hang high

    Never want to, never did
    Paint and bus stops prick some blip
    Second hand but I don't mind
    Scouring the papers at Christmas time

    And when it mattered, and it always did
    At least we lived
    And when it mattered, of course it did
    At least we lived
    At least we lived

    Walking into town so young
    Walking into town 'n job
    Walking into town so young
    Walking into town and done

    Walking into town so young
    Walking into town 'n job
    Walking into town so young
    Walking into town and

    And when it mattered, and it always did
    At least we lived
    And when it mattered, of course it did
    At least we lived
    At least we lived Writer/s: Andrew Robert Fearn, Jason Williamson
