Gordon's a man on the edge
Like so many he's worried
He's worryed he bored all his friends
And that no one understands him

He sits in the corner and stares
And he respects those who ignore him
It's the strangers that he want's to win
So he forgets those that adore him

It's easy to fly with the wind at your back
But it's hard not to cry when you see what you lack
Gordon just needs to learn how to relax
Sound familiar?

Gordon he's never upset
He's just worried he'll start moving backwards again
He is as focused as any man gets
But he's stuck in the details 9 times out of 10
He's missing the picture, missing the picture
It's staring him right in the face
If he's sitting here but he'd rather be there
Then surely he's in the wrong place

It's easy to fly with the wind at your back
But it's hard not to cry when you see what you lack
Gordon just needs to learn how to relax
Sound familiar?

Three cheers for Gordon
Another year has gone
And all he can show for it
Is the new things he owns
Three cheers for Gordon
Hip, hip, hooray
Sound familiar

    General CommentAmazing song, one of my favourites. Such a beautiful tune. A great reflection on the attention that is craved by individuals, particularly in this age of social media and a vapid online internet presence that seems to fuel so much of how we interact with each other.

    Look forward to more brilliant stuff from Brett Winterford through his band, Peregrine
