lyrics

I lay dormant
Under the mountain
Into another world, you fell
In the shadow of the tower blocks
Just like a little weed
Like a drifting seed
That's cast to the four winds

Carried on the thermals
Into the vapour trails
Until you were
Set down beside me
Just like a little weed
I have gone to seed
I'll never go back

Covered up with filthy dirt and buried in the ground
As the tractor draws the furrows out long and straight and brown
And this wrinkled brow reminds me of your frown
And everything I grow on cracks and tumbles down
Just like a little weed
That doesn't make a sound
I'll be climbing up your walls until
They break and fall down

We sprouted in the oak's shadow
Where Autumn falls slow and bright
And though my roots are only shallow
I reach out towards the light
Just a like a little weed
I will never reach
Just a like a little weed
I will never reach
And never grow back

The only thing I asked you when you left me was who will dry your eyes
But hope and light and fear replied like bats swooping in the dark
And all the while you clung to me like my drenched shirt I hung on every word
But now you've outgrown me and I am left alone
And everything I touch turns to stone
Just like a little weed
Left out in the cold
What will become of me
When I get old...
