about

This is the first track on this EP and it is the story of my grandparents Don and Shirley and their lives together until it's end

lyrics

At the age of 11, they met just before World War 2,
Though they were young it felt so true,
For five whole years they were side by side, never separated, never lost sight,
Of what was true, what was real to them until 6 years,
Rolled by he was gone, he was fighting for her life,
Underage and unprepared he fought for King and Country,
Though at times they were both scared, he knew when he hit land he might not come home,
Eventually he was in her arms, turned down medals and bought a ring.

This is a tale for two lovers,
How they fell in love with each other,
How two hearts become one,
From beginning to end.

Two more years passed and they got married,
And watched their lives pass by,
Having two boys, having fights and all those good times,
One day she knew her mind started to change,
She knew their faces but not their names,
And he stayed there right by her side,
Even through the 5 hours, he was sat on the other side of the door as he heard her cry,
She'd forgotten who he was in a minute or so.

This is a tale for two lovers,
How they fell in love with each other,
One day she knew her mind was not the same,
Cause his name didn't ring so true.

He was on his own for nearly 10 more years,
Until his heart decided to close up and give in,
And finally they resuscitated him just for one time,
As his heart started again,
He looked at his son and said,
Don't let them start it again,
I've had enough of this life, let me see your Mother again.

This is a tale for two lovers,
How they fell in love with each other,
One day she knew her mind was not the same,
But their hearts were still one.

Now he floats down British waters,
And she is sat at her view,
Hoping one day he'll get stuck,
By that tree with a view.
