Older Chests Lyrics - Damien Rice

Review The Song (2)



Older chests reveal themselves
Like a crack in a wall
Starting small, and grow in time
And we all seem to need the help
Of someone else
To mend that shelf
of too many books
Read me your favourite line

Papa went to other lands
And he found someone who understands
The ticking, and the western man's need to cry
He came back the other day, yeah you know
Some things in life may change
And some things
They stay the same

Like time, there's always time
sponsored links
On my mind
So pass me by, I'll be fine
Just give me time

Older gents sit on the fence
With their cap in hand
Looking grand
They watch their city change
Children scream, or so it seems,
Louder than before
Out of doors, into stores with bigger names
Mama tried to wash their faces
But these kids they lost their graces
And daddy lost at the races too many times

She broke down the other day, yeah you know
Some things in life may change
And some things they stay the same

Like time, time, there's always time
On my mind
So pass me by, I'll be fine
Just give me time,
Time, there's always time
On my mind
Pass me by, I'll be fine
Just give me time

I love this song | Reviewer: Shan | 7/8/2008

this is one of the first songs I heard of him and I fell in love with his work at once! He is so passionate with his lyrics it is amasing! No one can write a better song then Damien Rice, not anyone! He is great :)

I just love this song! I love his album and all his b-sides.. they're all good!
The lyrics hold a touching story, and it's a perfect song to play on camp..!
