about

I wrote this song about growing up in Liverpool, a city I love and will always call home. It's full of bitter/sweet memories, but mostly good memories.

lyrics

YOU'RE MY LIVERPOOL

Looking out the car window
at the place I was born
There's a few alterations
on the things that were worn
But the people still there
never seem to change
And all the ones that I knew
are now looking their age
So on and on we go
and turn another page

I go past the old schools
where we broke all the rules
We were happy and wild
we were somebody's child
Yes as kids we were free
and everyone had a chance
And when we left school
we drank beer and we danced
Lost in all of our dreams
lost in young romance

I never knew that day
was gonna end in that way
When you died in my arms
along with all of your charms
I tried the stiff upper lip
I tried to jump off a ship
I tried and tried not to cry
to stem the flow from my eyes
You've made me all that I am
to smile and not give a damn
You're so beautiful I really love you
You've made me crazy and cool
You old cantankerous fool
You're my A number 1
YOU'RE MY LIVERPOOL
YOU'RE MY LIVERPOOL
YOU'RE MY LIVERPOOL

I never knew that day
was gonna end in that way
When you died in my arms
along with all of your charms
I tried the stiff upper lip
I tried to jump off a ship
I tried and tried not to cry
to stem the flow from my eyes
You've made me all that I am
to smile and not give a damn
You're so beautiful I really love you
You've made me crazy and cool
You old cantankerous fool
You're my A number 1

YOU'RE MY LIVERPOOL
YOU'RE MY LIVERPOOL
YOU'RE MY LIVERPOOL
YOU'RE MY LIVERPOOL
YOU'RE MY HOME
AND YOU'RE MY LIVERPOOL
