One To My Left


Did you ever have to do
The thing you swore you'd never do
Something filthy and impatient,
Something churlish bold and shrewd

Well sit down my boy
And i'll tell you exactly how i crawled right
Through

Gather in your confidence
And hear the story of a man
Who came undone

First you weigh up your commitments
Where your loyalties really lie
And if you bump into jesus
You just look him in the eye

Tell him that you're fine
Silently return to sharpening your knife




Finally when the time comes think of who you really need
And close your eyes so tightly you think they'll bleed


Don't drop your guard don't let
Them know the thoughts inside your head
Just do what you've always done
Though they all wish you were dead
They'll crush your heart
Your spirit and your soul but keep your eyes ahead
And you know when the time comes there'll be nowhere new to hide
He'll just be in your heart and you'll lose pride

Never break the line
Never click your heels in time
If your heart's anything like mine that's not the way
Don't get comfortable down there
Don't pretend that it's always fair
With your fingers crossed it's not your loss

If you really want to you can stay

You can stay

Never drop your guard and let them
Know the thoughts inside your head
Just do what you've always done
They'll all wish you were dead
They'll crush your heart
The spirit and your soul but keep your eyes ahead
Then someday when your bones break
And you dont know gifts from theft
Drink yourself away one to my left

Never break the line, never click your heels in time
If your heart's anything like mine that's not the way
Don't get comfortable down there
Don't pretend that it's always fair
And your fingers crossed
And it's not your loss
So if you really want to you can stay
You can stay
