"Halfway to Richmond" as written by and Samuel Ervin Beam....
I'll make supper for myself
I'll watch the clock upon the shelf
I'll clean this broken house

Is your time better spent?
By giving such a small percent
Your every pleasant dream that I've tried

Once this ugly thing I see
When was this cold calling me?
And in my [?]
They got him

I sleep with the lights left on
Until all restraints are gone
Is there something you've forgotten?

Who knew?
Some want the better
And all we had
Waited in the next room

And a fool just to carry on
You're the thing that I belong to

Instrumental

Underneath is falling down
Silence, turn around
These games aren't too fun when you're gone

Where you go and why do you leave?
I'll close my eyes
And count to 3
Then hurry up
And wait by the phone

Who knew?
Some want the better
And all we had
Waited in the next room

And a fool just to carry on
You're the thing that I belong to

    General CommentI'll make supper for myself
    I'll watch the clock upon the shelf
    I'll clean this broken house you denied
    Is your time much better spent
    By giving such a small percent
    To every pleasantry that I've tried?

    What's this ugly thing I see?
    When was this cold and uncomely
    Animosity begotten?
    Fucking with the lights left on
    'Til every ounce of strength was gone
    Is there something you've forgotten?

    When a new sun warms the bedroom wall
    I'll be halfway to Richmond
    I'm the fool just to care at all
    You're the free vagabond

    London Bridge is falling down
    And Simon says to turn around
    These games ain't too fun when you're grown
    Where'd you go and why'd you leave?
    I'll close my eyes and count to three
    Then hurry up and wait by the phone

    But when the new sun warms the bedroom wall
    I'll be halfway to Richmond
    I'm the fool just to care at all
    You're the free vagabond

    General CommentI thought i was one of few who had this rare set of demos but it seems they have already spread... nice song by the way...a younger sound of sam's voice

    General CommentI agree. Sam sounds much younger in this song, possibly a teenager.
