  • I feel like a sun without a sky
    Feel like a socket without an eye
    Feel like a house , but not a home
    Just a dog without a bone

    How can you wink without an eye?
    Like a grievance, but with no cry
    A house, not a home and I don't know why
    Just a pig without a sty
    The best lasts forever

    Feel like a sail but I've been slashed
    A vigilante that's been unmasked
    Feel like a raft, but not a ship
    Sinking on this south facing tip
    I know that before when you answered the door
    I told you the world to leave me
    The best lasts forever, together again

    Have you ever felt like a story untold?
    A catwalk model that's growing old
    Hard to imagine what's more important
    The rainbow, the pot or the gold
    I know that before when you answered the door
    I told you the world to leave me
    The best lasts forever, together again

    Thinking about what it is that made you change
    Was it the quarks, the dosh or the dames
    When did I become so deranged?
    Think of the time when blood ran through your veins
    When she looked as sweet as a candy cane
    As she looks through the window pane
    Through the window pain and the rain
    I said it again and again
    The best lasts forever
    I know that before when you answered the door
    I told you the world to leave me

    I've been on my knees on so many streets
    Not just the ones in dundee
    Feel on my face, been a leglass disgrace
    Ten thousand laughing at me, but still
    The best last forever Writer/s: KIEREN CLARK WEBSTER, KYLE FRANCIS FALCONER
