Deaf Havana – Hunstanton Pier lyrics

It was 2004, if I'm not mistaken, when the poison hit my lips,
And I haven't looked back since.
I had friends back then and a pier made to match,
We were young and out of touch with the things we'd grow to hate so much, in time.

Back when my hair was long and Phil was still alive
We spent our days trying to speak, to the girls that left us weak
But now I'm ageing badly and my friends' been laid to rest
And the ones who let us in are pushing prams or raising twins.

To tell you the truth I'd be lying if I said I didn't hate the city
I need the pier and the fresh sea air of the town that made me.

In my heart and in my soul are all the people that I've known
And the places I called home
But in my head and in my mind they're all just things I left behind
Reminders of the changing times and these ageing bones of mine.

Lee and me were schooled in a tourist town
With less culture than Jeremy Kyle
But it stole our hearts for a while
And most weekends I found nothing but regret
Between many a drunk girls' legs
And in many a strangers' bed.

To tell you the truth I'd be lying if I said I didn't hate the city
I need the pier and the fresh sea air of the town that made me who I am.

In my heart and in my soul are all the people that I've known
And the places I called home
But in my head and in my mind they're all just things I left behind
Reminders of the changing times and these ageing bones of mine.

The one's who haven't died or started families
Are all just working on building sites or battling with university fees
And a girl I used to know made me a promise once
I wonder if she kept it, or if she even remembers it...

In my heart and in my soul are all the people that I've known
And the places I called home
But in my mind they're all just things I left behind
Reminders of a changing times, and these ageing bones of mine.
These ageing bones of mine.

    Its about the regret that fills you with old age, the thoughts of the past the good times and then the bad also, thinking about the changes and realising that you hate all of it and just long to be back to the perfect time you grew up in during your youth, without the fast cars deliquescent kids everywhere the tall buildings and they secret hate everyone holds for eachother as everyday the motto everyone for themselves grows stronger.

    It's about getting old, and realising that you've not done half of the things you wanted to do by now. And the little things when you were young, like 'a girl I used to know made me a promise once', you remember when you are older. Although, he doesn't sing it as if it's a good thing, I think he wishes he was young again, as he has so many regrets.
