Lyrics by Gerry Norman

It was a minute past noon on train speeding fast
Through the dark foggy hills outside Glasgow
Wipe the sweat from my brow
And the tears from my eyes
I was tired but I had to keep moving
I’ll remember that “fuck you” forever
And the whistling wind
6 feet stomped on my back
When I called Marian to tell her
She said I had to keep singing
And that one day we’d form a band
Called No Doughnuts For Dogs
We have the name but no songs

Cause I feel the weight of the world on my back
I keeled over today
All I see is black and the blood on the tracks
But I had to leave Glasgow behind
I had to leave Glasgow behind

It was 8 in the morning on Haverstock Hill
Mary take me to the Heath
I can’t sing tonight but I know that i will
Take a deep breath and throw on my armour
I remember that hug I gave Amy and my leaves fell off
I left them to die there in Camden
These 3 angels saved me
They’re my guiding star
Now everything I see on the horizon
Is endless beauty to me
Endless beauty is all I see

Cause I feel the weight of the world on my back
I keel over today
All I see is black and the blood on the track
But I had to leave Glasgow behind
The rose that I live for had withered and died
I had to leave Glasgow behind
I had to leave Glasgow behind
