"St. Christopher" as written by and Jamie Alexander Treays....
Seems like a heavy load
Anti-depressants lessen episodes
While the West End boys in their hand-me-down clothes
Brag about fights under high street lights
She walks alone the long way home
And oh, she's a troubled soul
Oh so troubled but nobody knows

Looks like his armour's old
Carrying chinks that his father used to own
And when he hits the bottle it definitely shows
He's a Machiavellian in a rebellion
I wish I could see, I would so follow
And oh, he's a terrible state
Oh so terrible, drowning in hate

But oh, when you see him
He's smiling at the ceiling
And telling you he's never growing old
And oh, when you see her
She smiles when you greet her
And tells you that she's never alone
As long as St Christopher's here
As long as St Christopher's here
As long as St Christopher's here
As long as St Christopher's here

While the young professionals city square mile
Worry for the first time in quite a while
She smirks then cursed, let the bourgeois burn
More concerned with a friend who is wild
Encouraged by guys I don't trust
And I say leave 'em alone or I'll visit your home
Uh oh, he's a loveable rogue
We'll all be responsible when he goes

But oh, when you see him
He's smiling at the ceiling
And telling you he's never growing old
And oh, when you see her
She smiles when you greet her
And tells you that she's never alone
As long as St Christopher's here
As long as St Christopher's here
As long as St Christopher's here
As long as St Christopher's here

    My InterpretationThe song paints the story of two characters, a girl that feels increasingly alienated in a crowded society and an aging man facing the reality of growing into a person much like his father.

    However both find comfort (she's never alone/he's never growing old) as long as St. Christopher is here. St. Christopher is the patron saint of travellers and they are both going through a particular journey in their lives... he protects them.

    That's just my two cents worth anyway ...

    I absolutely love this track, definately not my favourite at first (actually thought it was the weakest track on the Sticks 'n' Stones EP) but it has grown on me a lot recently, it is stunningly beautiful.

    Admittedly his vocals aren't very strong on that track but I've always been a fan of Jamie's slower, acoustic songs.
