Track 9.

lyrics

It feels so inappropriate meeting you like this
With your dreams of glass and steel
Only hurts me when I speculate
About a gentle kiss and a light brush of your cheek

As we walk along the promenade
Faded signs now stand
Where fairground rides should be
And it pains me when I think of what we used to be
In this city by the sea

Now there’s only me and my debris
Nothing left
But the sight of me with my debris

Channel breeze is blowing quite a gale
Wish I could set sail and take you out to sea
But your ghost has long since fled this tale
With your gentle kiss
Leaving me with my debris

Now there’s only me and my debris
Nothing left but the sight of me with my debris
And I don’t want you around to
See your old world pulled down
Around my feet

Oh, it feels so inappropriate meeting you like this
With your dreams of glass and steel
Only hurts me when I speculate
About a gentle kiss
And a light brush of your cheek

Now there’s only me and my debris
Nothing left but the sight of me with my debris, oh…
And I don’t want you around to
See your old world pulled down
Around my feet
Please leave me with my debris
Now leave me
