lyrics

The View From an English Breakfast

She came into his life like some kind of a revelation
An angel in a stained white apron
Like a heart attack from out of the blue
He fumbles nervously and upsets the ketchup, and he claws at his t-shirt
Wishing he could wash away his pin-up tattoo.
She stands by the til her delicate arms folded, holding the universe together,
then she offers him a hint of a smile

Sometimes time just stops like it’s waiting for us to get off
And the view from an English Breakfast
Can be the prettiest view in the world
And today is the living proof

He fumbles for his glasses, he can’t think what to do or say,
Lips of rubber and fingers of clay. A living breathing mistake.
Oh Oh Oh And catching her eye
Oh Oh Oh is like grasping for light
Oh Oh Oh Something that he’s never had the training to do
Sometimes time just stops like it’s waiting for us to get off
And the view from an English Breakfast
Can be the prettiest view in the world
And today is the living proof

And ten years later on some Tuesday night
She says “remember when we met you looked so frightened”

But the view from an English Breakfast
Can be the prettiest view in the world
And today is the living proof
Today is the living proof…
