lyrics

you're home on a saturday
not quite where you want to be
the bruise of anemones
the souvenirs of spring

something on the radio
tells you you don't want to go
you hold it like the residue
of a summer you lost

something makes you want to stay
it's nagging at the perfect day
afraid time will run away
before it's begun

home on a saturday
not sure where you want to be
and all that you bring to me
i once brought to you

and it's hard when you don't want to go
but the bird is already loose
you feel that you'll never know
the rules no one teaches you

so you try, you experiment
wondering where the magic went
decanting years of sediment
that turned joy to clay

in another time and another town
you'll find ways to break the ground
and all that you bring to me
i once brought to you

and it's hard when you don't want to go
but the ribbon is already loose
you feel that you'll never know
the rules no one teaches you

so you pack up your troubles
leave home for the wolves
young soldiers of fortune
forged in mill green

through playgrounds and corridors
they'll lash at your wings
they'll tar you and beat you
till you feel their sin

till promises given
in halcyon and hearth
now banished from heaven
fall deep in the earth

till all your green meadow
is sallow and cold
they'll rend it with buckshot
and sell you for gold

still you shamble at midnight
in green verdure
bright star of the ancients
whose light is still pure

with ballad and bugle
and weary of word
you'll fight on the coal face
till your voice is heard
