SONG LYRICS

Miriam

Miriam says nothing at all
She sits there quietly on her own
As her husband explains to me how they met
Miriam hears the story again
Of how he knew the day they met
She stares out the window
Avoids my gaze

Stuck in a story that’s not her own

Miriam waits beside her door
Wanting to say a whole lot more
Wanting to say how much she wants to leave
He hasn’t noticed how she looks
He hasn’t noticed a head full of books
And Miriam I don’t think he ever will

Stuck in a story that’s not your own

I hope you know one day
That you could just get up and go
I hope you know one day
It’s okay to stand alone
Ok to stand alone

Miriam says nothing at all
She sits there quietly on her own
As her husband explains how they met
He hasn’t noticed how she looks
He hasn’t noticed her head full of books
And Miriam I don’t think he ever will

Stuck in a story that’s not your own
Stuck in a story that’s not your own

DESCRIPTION
My good friend Graham played drums on this. It was written for/about a woman called Miriam, and her husband. She later left for southampton, so I have no idea what happened next.
