lyrics

for s.j.c.

quarter to ten at the a+e where nobody thought they would need to be
saturday night in the old country and we come to you on our knees
take us in will you will you with the unlucky the drunken too
take us in will you will you

a blow to the head and a break to the foot and a party of revelers turned mean
a woman is red-eyed and reading a book with a child asleep at her feet
have you been here waiting long? with the others whose evening’s gone wrong
have you been here waiting long?

quarter to three and the NHS has given our worries a bed to rest
fluorescent lights and a handful of tests a quick smile from the nurse on her way
smile again can you can you after all of the things you’ve been through
smile again can you can you

phone call breaks through still night i’m sorry to wake you
we’re on floor two fulham palace avenue

quarter to eight i walk out on the street and hammersmith station’s alive
with sunday day shoppers who’ve risen from sleep
just sure that today will arrive

take good care my friend my friend if there’s ever a hand i can lend
take good care my friend my friend

quarter to ten at the a+e where nobody thought they would need to be
saturday night in the old country and we come to you on our knees
