lyrics

That worn soul
He’s slowing to a crawl
He sparks a pipe up by the old scout club wall
And he dithers though the old clique
Will come running through the close
As he’ll do tomorrow
And he did three days ago

She shakes a box
Down a crowded rush hour road
I drop three coins in
For a youth I’ll never know
And she’ll tread on tenterhooks
As they seer her bus stop with cigarette sticks
Who’ll greet the weekend in roars and the threat of a Glasgow kiss

I’m just toing and froing
And hell I’m getting older
This is no snake grown skin
Oh reckless grit hatch out
My cells while you can
While I’ve got colour left
While I’ve got colour

Oh these streets are growing grey
But they’re a stoic to their ills
Each house just a waiting room
In a ward for the next cheap thrill
But my blood is laced with cinders
And those cinders want to rouse flames
It’s a want, a stirring of faith
That there’s more than a life preordained

I’m just toing and froing
And hell I’m getting older
This is no snake grown skin
Oh reckless grit hatch out
My cells while you can
While I’ve got colour left
While I’ve got colour left

I’m just toing and froing
And hell I’m getting older
This is no snake grown skin that I’m in
Oh reckless grit hatch out
My cells while you can
While I’ve got colour left
Oh we’re always on the cusp
It’s never love, it’s always lust
But if that’s enough, that’s enough
