"Ribbons And Leaves" as written by and Graham Coxon....
In an old house, in an old street
You found me and a tv
There was no bed, there were no chairs
There was no roof, there were no stairs

Ribbons and leaves and time in the tin
Behind the wall in the kitchen

Life, I love you

Got your old cap and tabcoo tin
And the torn shirt that you died in
How we prayed for you to come on home
My solider, my dead prince

Ribbons and leaves and time in the tin
Behind the wall in the kitchen
Medals and glass, a life in the bin
Behind the walls that you lived in

Life, I love you

    General CommentPerfectly captures the feelings of emptiness when grieving for someone you loved, seems rather hollowing when someone full of life and energy is reduced to...."Got your old cap and tabcoo tin And the torn shirt that you died in.."

    Grahams low-fi americana driven pavement/Dinasaur Jnr influences came screaming out to us in his guitar solos on blurs album 13, and although a fan in the 90's i prefer his solo stuff. This song is perfect and loaded with pathos, shine on Mr Coxon the torch has definately been passed to you.
