Torn On The Platform
Jack Peñate Lyrics


Once more just before I'm leaving
Torn on the platform
Once more just before I'm leaving
Torn on the platform

'Cause I miss you and I love you
And I know this is over for now
'Cause I miss you, oh, how I miss you
You're not my girl you're my town

A weekend away, leave the city today
Don't want the big smoke to leave me behind
The train leaves at 2, Platform 3 Waterloo
50 p to the tramp makes me feel kind

I get a good seat with a window
My feet are up on the one in front everyone stares
But why do they care? Like there's feelings in chairs
Stuck for 3 hours until I get there

My eyes, eyes, eyes are not dry, dry, dry
As I realize-lize-lize
That in a few minutes this train will be gone
Sighs, sighs, sighs, city flies, flies, flies
Wonder why, why, why
Would anyone want to leave where I come from?

I'm torn on the platform
I'm torn on the platform
I'm torn on the platform

It's 1:58, wish that I had been late
And missed the train and given them an excuse
But what is the use? I've less slack than a noose
Do or die, stay or go, what should I choose?

'Cause my eyes, eyes, eyes are not dry, dry, dry
As I realize-lize-lize
That in a few minutes this train will be gone
Sighs, sighs, sighs, city flies, flies, flies
Wonder why, why, why
Would anyone want to leave where I come from?

I'm torn on the platform
I'm torn on the platform
I'm torn on the platform

Like in a film the motion starts to slow
As the beeping carriage doors begin to close
Momentarily I'm standing froze
Then I jump between the gap, land on the platform flat

I'm not torn on the platform
I'm torn on the platform
I'm torn on the platform

2007 was such a great year for Indie/Alternative music. It was the first real rock movement since the Britpop/Johnny Marr era. It's all shit now.

Matteoj sea girls are quite good in my opinion, but they’ve dropped off a little

Matteoj

I can only think of Catfish and the Bottlemen who are around these days but could have slotted in. And Foals obviously, but they were already around back then.

How so?

L'MONDEGREEN Completely agree. How I miss 2006-2009, the three years when music got really great. It's all so repetitive and bland these days. Come
Back Jack!
