"Help Me Please" as written by and Richard Archer....
There's no light in the hall
There's no sound here at all
Emptiness, emptiness, rules
Why'd I wanna come home?

You ain't sat in your chair
No one calls, no ones there
Just a clock, tick, tock
Tears, so many tears

Help me please
I'm in need
'Cause being alone scares the life out of me
Help me please
I'm in need
'Cause being alone scares the life out of me
Being alone scares the life out of me

Breaking down on the stairs
Hello loneliness, Hello despair
All of this, all of it wrong
You won't ever come home

They can take what they please
They can take the blame
Everything, everything is free
Have it all

Help me please
I'm in need
Cause being alone scares the life out of me
Help me please
I'm in need
Cause being alone scares the life out of me
Being alone scares the life out of me
Being alone scares the life out of me

    General CommentRight, this album contains a lot of reference to when Richard Archer moved away from Staines for a decent life, feeling that Staines was a dead-end town.

    His band, Contempo, failed miserably and when his dad died he moved back to Staines. By his lyrics I THINK he tried to track down his old girlfriend who he never forgot but failed at this.

    This song is followed by 'Can't Get Along (Without You)' so it's either about his girlfriend

    OR MOST LIKELY:

    His dad - not in his chair... not coming home...

    General CommentThis is such a sad and moving song. The lyrics and music are simple and so effective. This is why Hard-Fi are one of the best bands at the moment as they can write songs such as this so simply and create such an effective impression on you. The new album is balanced with some great indie upbeat tunes with some sad songs which can make you feel sad .
