I recorded this at home during the pandemic. I sent my take to Len and he wrapped it up in magic. Thanks for listening. I hope you and yours are safe and well,


I know you hear the call of the wave,
The smell of the salt and the rock,
Take a quiet step back friend,
I wouldn't want you to fall.

Hood up, head down,
Killing time, walking round town,
Waiting on the last bus,
We've gotta get home,We've gotta get home.

I know you get tempted by,
the third rail late at night,
Never used to understand it then,
But you do now, sometimes.

Wrote a note, tore it up,
Fed it to the seagulls below.
Didn't want to burden any of us,
Needed something living to know.

We don't have to talk about it,
If you don't want to talk,
If you want to talk about it,
You can call me anytime you want.
