Curious, my teenage fears

Came back to me later in years

You led me on, you backed me up

And fed me when I’d had enough


I’m a martyr to my wasted life (2)

Naturally, the answer’s ‘Yes’

Your silent dignity’s what I’d expect

But you stand up, you stand up,

You stand up, you stand up



You say you’re, say you’re, say you’re

Older…older…older….older in my eyes

I’m always right (2)

I’m always, I’m always right (2)

    Ahh. New Music Monday comes early for us. 😉 I feel so lucky. Really like this song, but nothing will ever compare to Janey–not in my book anyway.

    Could not have closed my Monday without having a listen. Darker, deeper, with an edge of the unknown. Well done, great instrumental as always!

  6. I missed it yesterday, so it is now making my Tuesday full of music and rocking music!
