throw yourself

Don’t give up now
you’ll regret it in the morning
when rumour starts to spread
inside your head
of all the better things you could be doing

Don’t give up now
you’ll regret it in the morning
take it from me, I stayed up all night
working on my harmonies
and little things that shouldn’t get to me
did today

Throw yourself into the arms of your friends
they’ll be there to remind you who you are
remind you who you are before your life subtends
throw yourself into the arms of your friends
they’ll be there
they’ll be there

I’ve spent so much time pacing on the city lines
listening to the beeping of pedestrian lights
and it’s true
if you beat away at them
they hearken to your hammering
cease their beepy stammering
and usher you across
yes it’s true
it’s all for you…

You who sees the shadows creeping stealthy out of every corner
stop
you who work such slavish hours labour’d to contractual powers
stop
you who write your words until you’re wrapped up in a note
a paper plane to fly away
you’ve made it hard
but not that hard
to make a start

You just throw yourself into the arms of your friends
they’ll be there to remind you who you are
remind you who you are before your life subtends
throw yourself into the arms of your friends
they’ll be there
they’ll be there
they’ll be there.
