about

Song Two of our seven-song Three Tynes story, representing the South Tyne. Our hero gets everything he dreamed of but it's all too quick. He realises this isn't what he was looking for.

lyrics

Tell me how we got this far
I let you down at every step I’m
Running from your bed to the bar
You forgive and I’ll forget

Sit me up and lift my head
Put the bottle in my hand I’m
Crawling from the bar to your bed
We can talk when I can stand

Look at what you have in front of you
Look at what you’re holding in your hands
Look who’s always standing by you
Who do people call the luckiest man

What is there that’s not in front of you?
What is it you don’t have in your hands?
Who else could you want beside you?
Can’t you see you are the luckiest man?

If I’m gonna do this (I will be)
In it up to my neck (but I)
Just dip my toe in (while I’m)
Making out I’m getting wet

Been trying us on (for size and)
I thought we would fit (but we just)
Look good in the part (and I want)
Something deeper out of it

Isn’t this what you were looking for?
Is there somewhere better you can go?
Is there somewhere you’ll be happier?
All you need is here you just don’t know

Funny thing with dreams is
They look different when you wake up I
Thought this was all I needed
But it’s not enough to make up for it
