It is constantly on my mind

all the memories

that’ll be left behind

The old girl

that we’ve all played

one way or another

She’s sounding and looking

a bit thin these days

not offering up as much

as in the good times

of which there were a few

When every mistake

was so very hard to take

going back to the start

with a heavy heart

questioning the need and

driving us out of our minds

Can’t buy you love he would say


Never enough to spoil the party


If only he were here to see

the way it is in the end

when a lifetime depends

on how it is recalled

True or false

Right or wrong

These four walls
