about

The only songs I have written starting with the title... at the suggestion of fellow singer-songwriter Sarah MacDougall who was stopping off at my place whilst on tour from Canada many moons ago.

Reflections on moving house far too many times in my life getting muddled up with memories triggered from unpacking boxes, all mixed in with random snippets of R.E.M. lyrics.

lyrics

| C | C G | C | C C#dim |

| Dm7 | C | Am7 | G |
What's in that box? What's hiding in here?
Pictures from Bedford, taken half a blue moon ago.
| Dm7 | C | Am7 | G | G |
My we were young then, all mix-tapes and alcopops,
Bum bags, shell suits and meatloaf CDs.
| F | E | Am | G |
Did I really dress like that and dance to that tune?
Then stumble home drunk by the light of the moon.
| F | E | Am | G | G7 |
I guess times they change and the change times they guess
And nonsense it still has a welcoming ring.

| C F | C G | Am Em | F G |
My Weezer cd's well they hardly get played,
My obsession with Ani Difranco has ended,
| C F | C G | Am Em | F | G |
You might ask is anything certain these days,
I would probably tell you that I love Leonard Cohen.

A snail carries with him some slime and a shell,
I've got ten boxes plus cartons as well,
As these books, bags and a case my grandfather used in the war.
Did I really write those words and did she write back?
Stray hands in Row G all through that James Bond film.
Nonsense it still has a welcoming ring
And heroes they still don't come easy.

Chorus

| C | C C#dim |
| Dm7 | C | Am7 | G | Dm7 | C | Am7 | G |

| F | E | Am | G |
Did I really dress like that and dance to that tune?
Then stumble home drunk by the light of the moon.
| F | E | Am | G | G7 |
Guess times they change and the change times they guess
And nonsense can still have a welcoming ring.

Chorus – end on vamp of | C F | C G |
