lyrics

Before we boarded the train
There was an announcement on the P.A.
There will be a delay, due to a fatality
I didn't know then that he was your brother
It was after all 7 years before I met you
And 6 months since we found out we had this link, this dreadful bond

You must have a better life
And do you still obsess?
And do you still get upset when I call you out on something you did wrong?
Because if there's another man, maybe there's another song

I was early that day, I had nothing to make, no one to meet
I was just going to watch the people walking up Buchanan Street
And sit on the steps the way we did before

Of course it wasn't the same, I had no one to talk to
Just strangers to nod at who would sometimes smile back at me
And I wondered if they felt pity towards me

You must have a better life
And do you still obsess?
And do you still get upset when I call you out on something you did wrong?
Because if there's another man, maybe there's another song
