Ribbons And Leaves - Graham Coxon

In an old house, in an old street
You found me and a tv
There was no bed, there were no chairs
There was no roof, there were no stairs

Ribbons and leaves and time in the tin
Behind the wall in the kitchen

Life, I love you

Got your old cap and tobacco tin
And the torn shirt that you died in
How we prayed for you to come on home
My soldier, my dead prince

Ribbons and leaves and time in the tin
Behind the wall in the kitchen
Medals and glass, a life in the bin
Behind the walls that you lived in

Life, I love you
