    Lyrics

    Been climbing trees I've skinned my knees
    My hands are black the sun is going down
    She scruffs my hair in the kitchen steam
    She's listening to the dream I weaved today
    Crosswords through the bathroom door
    While someone sings the theme tune to the news
    And my sisters buzzes through the room leaving perfume in the air
    And that's what triggered this
    I come back here from time to time
    I shelter here somedays

    A high-back chair, he sits and stares
    A thousand yards and whistles marching-band
    Kneeling by and speaking up
    He reaches out and I take a massive hand
    Disjointed tales that flit between
    Short trousers and a full dress uniform
    And he talks of people ten years gone
    Like I've known them all my life
    Like scattered black & whites
    I come back here from time to time
    I shelter here somedays
    I come back here from time to time
    I shelter here somedays
