lyrics

Skeletons

Words and music © Tim Hudspith, December 2007


Good to see that nothing changes
Not the sights or the sounds
I can recognise some faces
Of the people hanging round

Good evening Jean-Pierre
With your tattoos and thinning hair
Are you still drinking rum?
Do you still carry a gun?

I heard you shot your lover dead
You put your gun against his head
Then you kissed him on his lips
And you’ve been running ever since

It’s good to see you Tracey
Drunk again and looking jaded
I heard you were a floozy
In cheap pornographic movies

You were gonna be a star
So you agreed to play the part

And as for all the rest of you
You’re too afraid to face the truth
Of the secrets deep inside
And the skeletons you hide

How do you do Michelle?
Still left upon the shelf
On the sad side of forty
Tight dress and looking tawdry

Slow dancing all alone
Hopes sinking like a stone

And as for all the rest of you
You’re too afraid to face the truth
Of the secrets deep inside
And the skeletons you hide

And as for me the singer
I’ve got nothing much to say
Sad songs that never linger
Just another gig to play

I had my moment in the sun
With a couple of my songs
But rock and roll moved on
And the money has all gone

And as for all the rest of you
You’re too afraid to face the truth
Of the secrets deep inside
And the skeletons you hide

And as for all the rest of you
You’re too afraid to face the truth
Of the secrets deep inside
And the skeletons you hide
