Brickbat
Billy Bragg Lyrics


I ought to leave
Enough hot water
For your morning bath
That I'd not thought I

Hate to hear you talk that way
But I can't bring myself to say I'm sorry
The past is always
Knocking incessant
Trying to break through
Into the present
We have to work to keep it out
And I won't be the first to shout
It's over
I used to want to plant bombs
At the last night of the proms
But, now you'll find me with the baby in the bathroom
With that big shell listening for the sound of the sea

I steal a kiss from you
In the supermarket
I walk you down the aisle
You fill my basket
And through it all
The stick I take
Is worth it with the love we make

I used to want to plant bombs
At the last night of the proms
But now you'll find me with the baby in the bathroom
With that big shell listening for the sound of the sea
The baby and me

I stayed in bed
Alone uncertain
Then I met you
You drew the curtains
The sun came up
The trees began to sing
And light shone in on everything
I love you
The sun came up
The trees began to sing
And light shone in on everything
I love you

Epic. That is all.

This hit me hard back in '96 and is ever more poignant every time I listen to it.

Caligula Would Have Blushed

One of the most genuinely beautiful love songs I've ever heard. I love the realism of it, the prominence it gives to the things we do that show love rather than the things we feel, which, as Yeats said, "fade out from kiss to kiss". Thanks for uploading 🙂

Such a beautiful, beautiful love song. So many of Billy's songs speak to me on such a deep, personal level. I admit, I AM a Saturday Boy. Unrequited. Billy has a beautiful soul. I really do love your insight.
