Martin


words

lyrics & notes

Then one day Martin said it's strange
You can tell there's going to be a change
Page is going to turn
Some things are set to burn
Little sister said make haste
Let's leave nothing here to waste
I know they all say it's fine
But we're running out of time
Over by the window in the corner in the sunshine
I see martin standing staring at the map
Over by the window in the corner in the sunshine
I see martin standing staring at the map
Then one day Roger Emmet said
It's a lonely, scary, precious and amazing time you've got ahead
Remember all this stuff i'm teaching you
Maybe not a single word is true
It's all just someone's point of view
Then the bully got a car
But it doesn't go that far
It makes a lot of noise
Carries all the boys
But it can't escape from here
Over by the window in the corner in the sunshine
I see martin's standing staring at the map
Oohhh we were all counting down the time to something
Whilst you
Stood tracing every line
That's leading somewhere
Over by the window in the corner in the sunshine
I see martin's standing staring at the map
Martin always seemed to know
The secret places that you need to go
And martin always seemed to tell
If someone tried to sell us on a
Lie that tried to keep you down and
Buried in your family town
Only so much space to grow
Only so many tricks to know
Don't you cry now only son
When there's only so much road to run
Martin always knows when songs are done.
