Commentary

Jack comments from the Reliving Life to the Full album:

A drunken sentimental lyric. A very neat little song, I think. From 1996 recordings, eventually came out on Lo Stresso Tempo. Nicky Del Rey on guitar, Ash Davies on drums, Doug Robertson on bass, Matt Heydon on keys. Barry Stockley co-producing.

 

Lyrics

It’s so late and I don’t have a car
Oh so late and home is oh so far
Now I will sit here underneath this bridge
I’ll watch the trains go by
Just me and my foolish pride

I would hate to bore you with my tale
But since you ask
And since you’re in no state
To refuse, I’ll bend your drunken ear
I’ll buy you one more beer
Just me and my foolish pride

Oh but home is not as far as it seems
Home is never as far as it seems

I only have one sorry tale to tell
But if I tell it over and over
I might tell it well
Now I will sit here underneath this bridge
I’ll watch the sun rise high
Just me and my foolish pride

Oh but home is not as far as it seems
Home is never as far as it seems

Oooooh, ooooooh
