"Coconut Flakes" as written by and Sam Jayne....
Grab some grapes and leaves, man
You can never tell
When you'll have to change your face
And hide your trophies well

Comin? down the mountain
Or goin? to your home
The village has evacuated
Now you gotta roam

Your feet could start to moan
And your eyes don't see too clear
The darkest dreams could come
And shake your faith to steer

Remember the sun
All from memory
Close your eyes and run circles
?Round its enemies

Remember the sun
Before you awake
Remember all the reasons
And bake it into your cake

Then we'll all come over
Bring the coconut flakes
We're gonna get stoned with ya
Laugh at your mistakes

I know it's been hard to take
And I know you wanna run
But just try to stay in one place
And have a little fun

I know it's been hard to take
And I know you wanna run
But just try to stay in one place
And dance before it's done

    My InterpretationI feel person who wrote the song did so for a friend. You goes through a tough time, stuck in the same town or trouble and it's just getting old. You have your friends and they see it too. You know something has to change. Never forget tomorrow is coming.

    just try to stay in one place and have a little fun

    just try to stay in one place and dance until it's done

    is saying it may not be so bad just to stick where you are and enjoy your life with what you have before it's over

    The whole song feels so personal when I hear it, it's incredibly moving. I get the same emotion when I hear 'Wish You Were Here'
