about

James is that guy I wanted to be

lyrics

My friend James was never sure
I went to war and he stayed home
I went to sea, he went to sleep
I'll never see the child he bore

My friend James, was never sick
I caught a cold and we stayed home
No time for sleep, we swam too deep
To try 'n save the child he bore

The stormy seas got worse when you came back
I've never seen them this bad
The stormy seas got worse when you came back
they got worse when you came back

My friend james kept animals
he'd feed em when the sun came down
The tide comes in when they go to swim
We won't see them coming back

My friend james was never late
his clock was an hour too fast
he'll turn up to my funeral
Before I have even passed

The stormy seas got worse when you came back
I've never seen them this bad
The stormy seas got worse when you came back
they got worse when you came back

The stormy seas got worse when you came back
I've never seen them this bad
The stormy seas got worse when you came back
they got worse when you came back
