lyrics

There’s a teapot on the table and there’s milk in
the fridge
The sugar, tea and coffee - all in coloured tins
Two chairs in the kitchen, orange cake in
the cupboard
Noises come and go. The house creaks and cars
drive by slow
I left you a very long time ago
I haven’t sat with you for 20 years
But I’m still here. I’m still here.
I’m here in the air, in the carpet. I’m on the tiles,
across the lawn
You’ll find me where the dogs are buried
You won’t get me out of these walls
Everything I ever thought floats on through
the hall
When I was alone at night I cursed and many
names did I call.
Those names ring throughout the water pipes
There’s my photo on your wall but I haven’t
gone at all
Not at all.
And the steps that lead to the garden shed,
Your Father built those before you were born
The clothesline stands at an angle
The wire is bent and worn
The tools are mine. Sawdust I made
The wireless was my only friend
And in my last moments I did love you
though I fought you until the end.
I left you a very long time ago
There’s my photograph upon your wall
I haven’t sat with you for 20 years
But I’m still here. I’m still here.
