JETHRO TULL lyrics - Living In The Past

Up The 'Pool

Original and similar lyrics
I'm going up the 'pool from down the smoke below to taste my mum's jam sarnies and see our Aunty Flo. The candyfloss salesman watches ladies in the sand down for a freaky weekend in the hope that they'll be meeting Mister Universe. The iron tower smiles down upon the silver sea and along the golden mile they'll be swigging mugs of tea. The politicians there who've come to take the air while posing for the daily press will look around and blame the mess on Edward Bear. There'll be bucket, spades and bingo, cockles, mussels, rainy days, seaweed and sand castles, icy waves. Deck chairs, rubber dinghies, old vests, braces dangling down, sun-tanned stranded starfish in a daze. We're going up the 'pool from down the smoke below to taste my mum's jam sarnies and see our Aunty Flo. The candy floss salesman watches ladies in the sand down for a freaky weekend in the hope that they'll be meeting Mister Universe. There'll be buckets, spades and bingo, cockles, mussels, rainy days, seaweed and sand castles, icy waves, Deck chairs, rubber dinghies, old vests, braces dangling down, sun-tanned stranded starfish in a daze. Oh Blackpool, oh Blackpool.

Half-Boyfriend

JAY BRANNAN "Unmastered"
I don’t know where we’re going But I know we’ve gone too far and I hope it isn’t showing But I think I love you and I can’t believe you’re leaving Just when I let you in and When you had me believing I could feel again I could give a million reasons Why we should not be friends Our moods change like the seasons My mood ends your mood begins and You’re a tease, you’re a cockblocker You’re a loud mouth bitch, and a big talker, But that’s okay. You’ll grow up someday. [CHORUS:] You’re the pill I never wanted to take. An anti-misanthrope Mine was the heart I never thought you would break My one hope was that I’d survive you I’ve shown up for you In ways that boy never would, but I know you’ll go back to him and Maybe you should, but I hope you don’t go backwards Cuz I’m going on ahead and One day you’ll wish that you had stuck with me instead [CHORUS] As I wander through Union Square I remember when you followed me there You were the stalker I kinda wanted to have Being your half-boyfriend was only half bad [CHORUS]

The Shifting Whispering Sands

JIM REEVES "Talkin' To Your Heart"
I discovered the valley of the shifting whispering sands While prospecting for gold in one of our western states. I saw the silent windmills, the crumbling water tanks The bones of cattle and burrows, picked clean by buzzards Bleached by the desert sun. I stumbled over a crumbling buckboard nearly covered by the sands And stopping to rest I heard a tinkling whispering sound And suddenly realised that even though The wind was quiet the sand did not lie still. I seemed to be surrounded by a mystery so heavy And oppressive I could scarcely breath For days and weeks I wandered aimlessly in this valley Seeking answers to the many questions That raced through my fevered mind. Where was everyone why the white bones, the dry wells The barren valley where people must have lived and died Finally I could go no farther my food and water gone I sat down and buried my face in my hands and resting thus I learnt the secret of the shifting whispering sands. How I escaped from the valley I do not know But now to pay my final debt for being spared I must tell you what I learned out there on the desert So many years ago. (When the day is oddly quiet And the breeze seems not to blow One would think the sand was resting But you'll find this is not so. It is whisp'ring softly whisp'ring As it slowly moves along And for those who stop and listen It will sing this mournful song. Of sidewinders and the horntoads Of the Thorny Chaparral In the sunny days and moonlight nights The coyote's lonely yell. How the stars seem you could touch them As you lay and gaze on high At the Heavens where we're hoping We'll be going when we die.)..
