Oh Sit Down

Chairs in the empty canteen at the Jubilee Campus at the University of Nottingham.

 

Seeing so many chairs it is a great opportunity to paste the words to a classic song from one of my favourite bands (fabulous live).

 

'I sing myself to sleep

A song from the darkest hour

Secrets I can’t keep

Insight of the day

Swing from high to deep

Extremes of sweet and sour

Hope that God exists

I hope I pray

 

Drawn by the undertow

My life is out of control

I believe this wave will bear my weight

So let it flow

 

Oh sit down

Oh sit down

Oh sit down

Sit down next to me

Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down, down

In sympathy

 

Now I’m relieved to hear

That you’ve been to some far out places

It’s hard to carry on

When you feel all alone

Now I’ve swung back down again

It’s worse than it was before

If I hadn’t seen such riches

I could live with being poor

 

Oh sit down

Oh sit down

Oh sit down

Sit down next to me

Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down, down

In sympathy

 

Those who feel the breath of sadness

Sit down next to me

Those who find they’re touched by madness

Sit down next to me

Those who find themselves ridiculous

Sit down next to me

In love, in fear, in hate, in tears

In love, in fear, in hate, in tears

In love, in fear, in hate, in tears

In love, in fear, in hate

 

Down

Down

 

Oh sit down

Oh sit down

Oh sit down

Sit down next to me

Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down, down

In sympathy

 

Oh sit down

Oh sit down

Oh sit down

Sit down next to me

Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down, down

In sympathy

 

Down'

 

Sit Down by James.
