So many things that i want to say But it doesn't matter anyway 'cause time moves on and now i'm still here Living through another year You'd want me to live so that's what i'll do Living life for me, but remembering you The world still turns and the crops still grow Soon the sun will melt this snow You used to sing "Waes Hale" at the top of your lungs, Play the mandolin and sing in foreign tongues You weren't a saint but you tried to make people smile And when your moment came you showed no fear Because you tried to enjoy every day you were here You made it all worthwhile, Jimmy Carlyle and this time when i came to stay i held your hand as you passed away and when i was there in your house alone i still felt like it was your home I sat in your chair and put your records on But it wasn't the same because you had gone And though i accept that you have died There'll always be a part of you inside You used to sing "Waes Hale" at the top of your lungs, Play the mandolin and sing in foreign tongues You weren't a saint but you tried to make people smile And when your moment came you showed no fear Because you tried to enjoy every day you were here You made it all worthwhile, Jimmy Carlyle

I stayed sane, so far Though i look the same, you can't see the scars But i'm tired, so tired, of it all. I been running from a certain kind of love You know it feels like a judgment from above But i'm tired, so tired, of it all It's been a lonely nightmare, but now i'm going home And now the sun is rising, i've lived to see the dawn But i'm tired, so tired, of it all

The rain had just stopped We were there on our own And we didn't know what would come next The last falling drops Crashed like bombs to the ground As we took our first tentative steps But now we can go home No one will stop us and we can have ice cream And we won;t go out Under those strange skies again Now we're inside again Put the kettle on then Take your coat off and we'll have some tea And we won't go outside We'll just stay in and hide I'll be with you and you'll be with me But now we can go home No one will stop us and we can have ice cream And we won;t go out Under those strange skies again Under those strange skies, Under those strange skies, Under, under those strange skies again
