lyrics

when i want to misbehave
think about my mothers grave
and the book on how to change
wasn’t written in one day

if i had to rearrange
the messages they take their shape
like photographs taken from
the book on how to change

you are an anchor, holding
holding me under
i don’t have that memory

waking from the deepest sleep
the difference between life and dream
i thought i heard your voice
it was just the tv screen

on the brightest clear blue day
a boomerang, an aeroplane
suddenly wanting to negotiate

you are an anchor, holding
holding me under
i don’t have that memory
no i don’t have that memory
no i don’t have that

can’t survive on milk alone
or carving mirrors out of stone
i thought i heard your voice
it was just the telephone

when i want to feel misplaced
think about my mother’s face
and the book on how to change
never taught me anything
