Graham Coxon – Ribbons And Leaves lyrics

In an old house in an old street
You found me and a tv
There was no bed, there were no chairs
There was no roof, there were no stairs
Ribbons and leaves and time in a tin
Behind the wall in the kitchen

Life I love you

Got your old cap and tobacco tin
And a torn shirt that you died in
How we prayed for you to come on home
My soldier, my dead prince
Ribbons and leaves and time in a tin
Behind the wall in the kitchen
Meadows and glass and life in the bin
Behind the walls that you lived in

Life I love you
