But What About The Future
by Moist Bamboo

You've got an IQ that's so bloody high
and I watch Rugrats and it makes me cry
If I drink so much that I miss my flight
would you drive to the airport in the middle of the night?
There's a thousand things that I'd do for you
but I'll never miss an episode of Doctor Who

These days won't last forever
Could you make them last forever?
Well I'm just a geek, and you're no fool
you'll have to tell me what to wear so that I can look cool
Say I take a test online one day
and the results say I might be 42% gay?
Well if this makes you laugh and you still want me
you'd better wait until you've met my family

These days won't last forever
Could you make them last forever?
But we will both like Stephen Fry
He's such a clever fucking guy
Oh my

And if we've got no money just a clapped-out van
we'll 'ave an ironic trip to a caravan
We'll sit in the van in the seaside town
feeding chips to the seagulls as it chucks it down
And then one evening for a special treat
we'll have a nice curry while the kids are asleep

But if we do quite well then I'll make you ski
we'll go twice a year and you'll be cross with me
But we'll live in a house with a swimming pool
you'll have ducks and chickens and an aga too
In the summer you can go for a daily swim
and I'll buy a TARDIS and stick it in the gym

These days won't last forever
Could you make them last forever?
But we will both like Stephen Fry
He's such a clever fucking guy
Oh my

And then one day when we're really old
and we're all cwtched up so we don't get cold
You'll be dressed in purple and I'll be fat
So what d'you think of that?

These days won't last forever
Could you make them last forever?
These days won't last
Could you make them last?
Would you make them last forever

Gareth
by Moist Bamboo

he asked me if I knew
and had I wondered
had I ever wondered who
was sitting on the sand, he'd smiled and waved
whilst games I'd played

but I
was happy as can be
no I dont know him
or what he means to me
She'd lived for all those years
with all those hidden tears

But he still flickers on the wall
while I just sit and stare
In black and white and shades of grey
they tell me I was there
My slate has been wiped clean
now tell me who was he
to me

and now the proof is on my screen
it feels so real
so real
the ink had dried some 40 years ago
goodbye to you although I'll never know
that little boy from the photograph
they had to let you go

But he still flickers on the wall
while I just sit and stare
In black and white and shades of grey
they tell me I was there
My slate has been wiped clean
now tell me who was he
to me

Charity Shop
by Adam Franklin-Williams

If you happen to see this
I'd like for nothing more than to walk by your side
to every charity shop along the way, in the hope...

That we might find some inspiration on a dusty shelf
that sleeps in the sunlight, smile at me
We planned our escape to the start of the week
while kids ran from crime scenes

And listen to the weather, beating down from above
well I can hear your eyes roll, and I could be anyone

In those transit lit tunnels, with friends you used to know
I wanted to keep you from the world
smile at me and hold out your hand and I'll kiss it gently
Is it this that you see, or d'you see through it all?
