Album: I Like It When You Sleep... (2016)
  • I wish you'd walk in again
    Imagine if you just did
    I'd fill you in on the things you missed
    Oh sleepless nights, a grown up man dressed in white
    Who I thought might just save your life
    But he couldn't, so you died

    I don't like it, now you're dead
    It's not the same when I scratch my own head
    I haven't got the nails for it
    And I know that God doesn't exist
    And all of the palaver surrounding it
    But I like to think you hear me sometimes

    So I reached for a borrowed fleece
    From my dad or from Denise
    Always trying to keep warm, when you're the sun

    I sat with you beside your bed and cried
    For things that I wish I'd said
    You still had your nose red
    And if I live past seventy-two, I hope I'm half as cool as you

    I got my pen and thought that I'd write
    A melody and line for you tonight
    I think that's how I make things feel alright

    Made in my room, this simple tune
    Will always keep me close to you
    The crowds will sing their voices ring
    And it's like you never left

    But I'm bereft you see
    I think you can tell
    I haven't been doing too well Writer/s: George Bedford Daniel, Matthew Timothy Healy, Ross Stewart MacDonald, Adam Brian Thomas Hann
