Track Name: My wife
I remember when we first met
Her hair was like a river flowing
I look at that summer sky now
And see it break into a thunderstorm
Our children have got children now
Living far away
I remember all those happy times
She is my wife
She is my life

I remember when we got married
The church was filled with people singing
And there were trees with greens and yellows
Swaying with us in harmony
I remember when we bought our first house
It had big front door and a kettle that sang
And I remember when she got pregnant
Her kicking tummy and we never drank at all
I remember when we came to the seaside
All my work was done and we could walk forever
And I remember when our old dog died
Oh, how we cried, but we still had each other

This is my wife; her name is Mary
But she don’t know it and she don’t know me too
Just carried her from the bathroom
I never thought it would come to this
Our children have got children now
But she’s lost to me
She don’t remember all those happy times
This is my wife
Track Name: While trains burn in the Punjab
Every person has their weakness
Every culture has its drug
Every crime has its witness
Witness this
Witness this, oh oh oh
Every success has its secrets
Every religion has its lies
Every marriage has its breaking point
Hope it doesn’t happen
I hope it doesn’t happen in this life
Oh, we eat at mealtimes, sleep in the night time
While trains burn in the Punjab
Yeah, we eat at mealtimes, sleep in the night time
While trains burn
Every gambler needs to lose big
Every good dreamer needs a clock
Driving through St Giles reminds me of “Scalextric - the winner!”
The winner, la la la
Every man likes the sound of his own voice
Every joker needs to cry
Every drink needs a little less alcohol
I’m spending too much money
Spending too much money on this mistake
Sometimes I eat between mealtimes, sleep in the daytime
While trains burn in the Punjab
I eat between mealtimes, sleep in the daytime, have a good time all the time
While trains burn
Every map has four corners
And every corner has two sides
Between two sides there is a thin line
Did you know you crossed it long ago?
Long ago, sa-ga-ma
In Amritsar there is a temple
And temples tend to smell of incense
Please excuse me for that irrelevance
You must be glad I’ve learnt something
Yes, I’ve learnt something under you
How do you eat at your mealtimes, sleep in your bed at night
While trains burn in the Punjab?
Wouldn’t you just cry at your mealtimes, cry yourself to sleep at night
Considering recent history?
How do you eat at your mealtimes, sleep in your bed at night
While trains burn?
While trains burn in the Punjab?
Track Name: Slow Burn
The sky is full of people leaving
The sky is full of people leaving
This earth, this world
Our home in slow burn

See the blue, see the green
See the brown, see the red
Turn your face to the darkness
Our home in slow burn

Do you remember how this happened?
Do you remember our first kiss?
Will you remember mountains burning?
Will you remember all these spaceships?
This earth? This world?
Our home in slow burn
