LEAVE THEM ALL BEHIND

And as you leave them all behind

and move on to pastures new

just be prepared to be reminded

of all the things you didn’t do

_

You will forget them very quickly

at least the names will disappear

but they’ll remember you more clearly

as you shoot through the atmosphere

_

There he goes to take his place

he always knew how to walk tall

but i’m not joining in the race

to bruise my soul at the first wall:

HE NEVER MADE ME FEEL ANYTHING BUT SMALL

HE NEVER STOPPED TO HEAR MY SONG

HE NEVER SAW WHY I HAD TO CRAWL

TO GET THROUGH THE GAPS IN MY HORIZON

_

So now you see them at the bus stop

faces worn out long ago

searching for chances in the dustbowl

searching for comfort in the snow

_

And you have children of your own

they run a race for charity

but what to do when they come home

and say they fear to walk the streets

_

There he goes to take his place

he always knew how to walk tall

but i’m not joining in the race

to bruise my soul at the first wall:

YOU NEVER MADE ME FEEL ANYTHING BUT SMALL

YOU NEVER STOPPED TO HEAR MY SONG

YOU NEVER SAW WHY I HAD TO CRAWL

TO GET THROUGH THE GAPS IN MY HORIZON

_

GOOD TO SEE YOU’RE KEEPING IN SHAPE MY FRIEND

THEY BEAT ME TO A PULP BUT I GOT THERE IN THE END

COME DOWN FOR A PINT WITH ALL THE MISFITS SOME TIME SOON

BEFORE WE MEET AGAIN IN SOME RENTED ROOM

LEAVE THEM ALL BEHIND
