a face to remember lyrics – john watts

the light creeps in
through the broken gl*ss
in the sleeping ward.
finnegan’s voice
is an endless whine
through a hardboard barricade.
i throw a cigarette to make him quieten down.
and i search for that photo of you.
and your face is a symbol.
a place to remember.
your face is a symbol for me now.
radio blares.
there is not much time.
and the children play you up.
buses and trains
on commuter lines
through the condensation.
i know what you’re doing now
and i follow you in your routine.
and your face is a symbol.
and your eyes make me strong again
i can look at the world full of confidence.
