Hospital Food
David Gray Lyrics


Just a little something for the pain
Hospital food getting you down?
Honey now I'm not one to complain
But this hangin' around
Is wearing me out

So patch me up boys take me home
Are you not hearing a word I say?
She sounds so different on the phone
I just sink like a stone
Back to the bay

Tell me something
Tell me something
I don't already know
Tell me something
Tell me something I don't know

Don't seem to have that much to show
For all the hard work, the sweat and toil
You say â??well that's right', and you should know
You've been there before
You've basked in the glow
You've stood in the roar
You've tasted the snow

Tell me something
Tell me something
I don't already know
Tell me something
Tell me something
I don't already

Seeing it all so beautiful
The way it oughta be
Seeing it all so beautiful
And turning away
Turning away
Turning away

Tell me something
Tell me something
I don't already know
Tell me something
Tell me something
I don't already know

This tune is so good, and so underrated

I know right

Such a powerful song, I find myself listening to it each time my parents have been in hospital for cancer and it helps me to reflect on what they are going through. Once again I am here for that reason...I find it has mental medicinal properties

Thanks so much! ❤️A real person at last❤️😘

One of my favorite songs of all time. Anybody else think it's a metaphor for someone who has decided it is time to move on with their life?

Sitting here working thru Covid Quarantine smiling at all these incredible songs - just brilliant and even better live

These have to be the most underrated, under viewed videos on youtube.

I never saw one, I was under the the impression when this came out that it was about war veterans. Not the video I would have thought at all. Not that there is anything wrong with it - just completely unexpected!

+modarXmodar There was an older video, but it was poor quality; all the comments were 'please upload a decent video'. So they did, eventually :)
