Scrapbook Of Our Youth - Sykes

 

Scrapbook Of Our Youth by Sykes


I remember petrol rainbows in puddles on the pavement,
Phone calls with crazy girls but we never knew what they meant,
The playground crazes that dictate the playground labels,
And the scent of crayons, sandwich crumbs on classroom tables
This is the scrapbook of our youth (I tried to change),
Throughout your life, your only truth (But I only stayed the same),
All will stay though all have gone (That's when people would say),
It's just the end of chapter one (I'm not strong enough anyway)...
Green dawns, damp lawns, goalposts and grass-stained football boots,
Going through the flower-beds and tearing out the roots,
Tapes, cinnamon, duvets, smoky rooms and key-ring chains,
Bomb-blasts, shattered glass, firework scented November rain...
This is the scrapbook of our youth (I tried to change),
Throughout your life, your only truth (But I only stayed the same),
All will stay though all have gone (That's when people would say),
It's just the end of chapter one (I'm not strong enough anyway)...
They tried to break me but I'm through,
Leave them behind for something new,
And everything's about to change,
I never dreamt I'd feel this strange...
So strange
This is the scrapbook of our youth (I tried to change),
Throughout your life, your only truth (But I only stayed the same),
All will stay though all have gone (That's when people would say),
It's just the end of chapter one (I'm not strong enough anyway)...
On the dunes of Formby
Heirs to the sky of a new-born century
We were all together
We are all together still
In the sunlight
