Once you wrote your name in peppercorns poured out onto the table
Your mother's bedside table, with her jingly-jangly jewellery
Her perfumes and her lipstick and the pepper from the kitchen
Where your mother put her face on every morning

Now your smile comes over in your voice
Now your smile comes over in your voice
And I have no choice but to try to keep that voice close to my ear
I like it when you come round here

Once you went searching rock pools with your best friend's younger brother
Left the hotel breakfast waiting with your parents and your best friend
The skinless fish and the soft rolls under light bulbs
To go searching through blue rock pools in Devon

Now your smile comes over in your voice
Now your smile comes over in your voice
And I have no choice but to try to keep that voice close to my ear
I like it when you come round here

Now your smile comes over in your voice
Now your smile comes over in your voice
And I have no choice but to try to keep that voice close to my ear
I like it when you come round here
I like it when you come round here
