"Lo And Behold" as written by Jack Christopher Allsopp and Andrew Wyatt....
I said Lo, Lo and Behold,
I just wanna know, why I'm so cold
And I hope I learn, before I get old
How I can burn, when I feel so cold

I've been inside for days, watching curtains as they sway,
Rain just falling like a blade on me and Mr Calloway
I got one direction home, police tape blocking off half the road
(?) fragments of some kids phone, and a white bouquet on a traffic cone

And there's the man with four cans of Super T
Having needed(?) conversations with ghosts I can't even see and hopefully
Tomorrow will swallow today

I said Lo, Lo and Behold
I just wanna know, why I'm so cold
And I hope I learn, before I get old
How I can burn, when I feel so cold

Come and go, the holloways(?)
Parting the queue for the pharmacy
Another little bottle of side effects, another blue pill for your tired sex
And this rain it keeps on falling, Hollywood stars on the black tarpaulin
I swallow, choke and then take it all in, all in

And there's the man behind the counter in the shop,
The one the kids take the piss out of and I wish that they would stop
But they will not. Tomorrow will laugh at today

I said Lo, Lo and Behold
I just wanna know, why I'm so cold
And I hope I learn, before I get old
How I can burn, when I feel so cold

    General CommentThis song is about jack feeling low with no real good reason, and asking himself why i am so down when there lots of people who are in much worse situations who seem to be getting on with it.

    General CommentAwesome tune! can't believe i'm the first to comment.

    Best song on the album I think.

    Note: The line "And there's the man with four cans of soup for tea". The soup for tea should be Super T as in Super Tennants 9% lager

    General CommentI agree, so catchy too. Not sure if it's my favourite, but there are some good lines.
    Thanks for the tip too, just listened to it again - hadn't heard of that.
