In The Dressing Room

thinking about touring and not touring…

In The Dressing Room

Let me sit alone this evening
I’m going back to the dressing room
Try to figure out how I’m feeling
About the things we were planning to do
10 years gone and I’ve stopped believing
That the music is all I need
But I can still talk to the audience
Better than anyone close to me.
Are you even close to me?

Lights up, hats on, playing on the BBC
(the best one, the best one)
Lights out, hats off, sounding like a hit to me…
(the best one, the best one, the best one)

From the start, you were in a different league
You’re beautiful and you’re brave
You don’t deserve to be betrayed
But it would be easy to walk away
After 5 years working in the same place
Coming on the same face
Sticking it in, sticking it out, shake it about
Never really much of a love affair
But you weren’t there, there’s nothing for you to say
It’s none of your business anyway

Tits out, shoulders back, everything’ll be OK
(the best one, the best one)
Lights up, hats on, same thing day after day
(the best one, the best one, the best one)
Lights out, hats off, travelling alone again
(the best one, the best one, the best one)

Lights up, hats on, putting on a show tonight
(the best one, the best one)
Tits out, shoulders back, everything’ll be alright
(the best one, the best one, the best one)
The truth is the best song anyone can ever write
(the best one, the best one, the best one)

from the ‘This Gun Is Not A Gun EP’
