lyrics

"In Hope"

As I emerge from restless dreams,
Chlorophyl is waking me.
The home I've known for all these years,
Greets me with a mother's tears.

And in Hope I know,
I'm just two miles from home.
And in Hope I know,
I'm just two miles from home.

The home that's grown as I have grown,
Spread its arms and let me go.
The walls, the lanes, the playing fields,
Armed with Achilles' shield.

And in Hope I know,
I'm just two miles from home.
And in Hope I know,
I'm just two miles from home.

All the faces they might change,
Jobs and debts get re-arranged.
But in the shadow of the tree,
England still makes sense to me.

And in Hope I know,
I'm just two miles from home.
And in Hope I know,
I'm just two miles from home.

The home that's grown as I have grown,
Never let me go.

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
