When It Was Ours - Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott

A Daffodil a rusty swing

 

A broken bench where once sat King

 

A mouldy doll looks to the stars

 

And it was mine and it was yours when it was ours

A withered tree where birds did sing

 

A broken song upon the wing

 

Those feathered hearts looked up to mars

 

When it was mine and it was yours and it was ours

 

It was ours when I was yours

Before this place went on all fours

Now it's under lock and key

It isn't you it isn't me

It's other couples falling walls

It's other couples punctured balls

No wasp filled jars or last hurrahs

Now it ain't ours

 

The conversation the whisper laugh

 

Is overgrown like garden path

The twisted branch the crooked stairs

 

It was yours it was mine now it's all theirs

 

The bicycle with buckled wheel

 

Lays on the grass like how we feel

A sparrow dies then Eagle soars

 

Now it's all theirs no longer mine no longer yours

 

It was ours when I was yours

Before this place went on all fours

Now it's under lock and key

It isn't you it isn't me

It's other couples falling walls

It's other couples punctured balls

No wasp filled jars or last hurrahs

Now it ain't ours

 

Revisit graveyards pubs and clubs

 

But don't go back to the place you love

 

They quickly return to distant shores

 

When they're not ours no longer mine no longer yours

 

It was ours when I was yours

Before this place went on all fours

Now it's under lock and key

It isn't you it isn't me

It's other couples falling walls

It's other couples punctured balls

No wasp filled jars or last hurrahs

Now it ain't ours

 

No wasp filled jars or last hurrahs

Now it ain't ours
