Man in Gabardine

He's telling her that he doesn't know why he's empty and aches inside.
She's sleeping now, head over my way at arms length just across the isle.

By day I climb the walls I cannot go around
Am I alone in this broken down dream?
The silver wheels that whisper through another town
say who am I? The man in Gabardine.

There's a cigarette rolling under her feet that fell from an old raincoat.
There is a regret in the greyhound miles that keep this wide land afloat.

By day I climb the walls I cannot go around
Am I alone in this broken down dream.
The silver wheels that whisper through another town
say who am I? The man in Gabardine.

Blame I will, home town of cemetery eyes to haunt you
They offer you no drinks or smiles
You leave, but clocking up the miles
Doesn't dull the pain of beauty in a stranger’s face.

Cruel Britannia rule the waves
make my tailor rich again
'till his dying day.
