As you may have seen if you follow the Facebook feed, they do raspberries AND strawberries in the dressing room here. Stick that in your pipe…

I’ve been out and about with Mr. Jamie Lawson these last few days. It’s presented a bit of a challenge as regards getting the tune out this week, hence I’m a day or so later than last week. Also, this one has been mixed on a pair of earphones, so there’s every chance it’s a bit murky, but we’ll have to see when I get back to a good pair of speakers. Anyway, apart from that, I’m reasonably happy with this one. No guitar again, second week running! Record, that.

lyrics

We're only oceans apart,
Yet I can see you well.
You claim the cream of the crop,
And I know you well.
You are the shame at the top,
And I can tell you,
I will be your enemy,
I will be your enemy.

We're only oceans apart,
Yet I can see you well.
You claim the cream of the crop,
And I know you well.
You are the shame at the top,
And I can tell you,
I will be your enemy,
I will be your enemy.

We set sail for seas of opulence,
Green eyed and talking nonsense,
You only get what you put in,
You earn it back by how you live
Stop talking shit you dick.
You gotta build a bridge and get over it.

We're only oceans apart,
Yet I can see you well.
You claim the cream of the crop,
And I know you well.
You are the shame at the top,
And I can tell you,
I will be your enemy,
I will be your enemy.

I'm hearing what you're saying,
But that makes no difference to the price of beer.
We're struggling to rock the roll,
Snouts in the trough and kids going cold,
Anger on the streets and talking to Joe,
We gotta build a bridge and get over it.

We're only oceans apart,
Yet I can see you well.
You claim the cream of the crop,
And I know you well.
You are the shame at the top,
And I can tell you,
I will be your enemy,
I will be your enemy.

Build a bridge, build a bridge and get over it (x4)
Get a little bit of rock and roll, get a little bit of rock and roll. (x4)

We're only oceans apart,
Yet I can see you well.
You claim the cream of the crop,
And I know you well.
You are the shame at the top,
And I can tell you,
I will be your enemy,
I will be your enemy.

We're only oceans apart,
Yet I can see you well.
You claim the cream of the crop,
And I know you well.
You are the shame at the top,
And I can tell you,
I will be your enemy,
I will be your enemy.
