Lyrics

Down On Townsend Avenue

When you were down
knocked back to the ground
God knows you really tried
But they just pushed you to the side

How you used to smile
Eyes shining all the while
Till they pushed you right back
In an unprovoked attack

What can I do now
To make you rejoin the race
To wake up and face
Another day on Townsend Avenue

You came around
But didn’t make a sound
Just trembling, pale and cold
Your secret story still untold

But your sad eyes spoke
Whenever you awoke
To find me sittin’ there
On that plastic bedside chair

If you’re lost for words to say
Well that’s OK - I understand
So take my hand - I’ll guide you through
Another day on Townsend Avenue

Born and bred in Liverpool and like most kids from that place got my first guitar as a young teenager (in the late 60s). I've been dabbling with a guitar or two ever since and couldn't imagine life without one. I've never had any musical training (pr... [see more]
