I met him outside a hostel door,
He said I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours,
I know you think it's shifty for a man in his fifties,
To be sleeping in a hostel dorm.

But I used to be a welder by trade,
Used to work by the water where the ships get made,
But no shipyard will take me now, my hands are too shaky now,
I've spent all my money before I get paid

I said David don't you think its strange,
While you were in your dark room,
How the world went and changed.
Looking in your eyes I think you know,
That David we lost you, lost you a long time ago.

He leans his head against a hostel wall,
Said I've ex-wife that doesn't hear me and a kid that doesn't call,
And every month I'm caught short with my fucking child support,
And the court says that I'm reckless and irresponsible.

'Cause it was never part of the plan to be a middle aged man,
To be sat outside a hostel shaking strangers hands,
But I've drunk away my wealth and I'm a picture of bad health,
And I'm a shadow of a shadow of a former self.

And I said David don't you think it's strange,
That for years you were walking
And how the world went and changed
I hear it in your voice I think you know,
That David we lost you, lost you a long time ago.

And I said David don't you think that its strange,
That while you were sleeping,
How the world went and changed,
Looking in your eyes I think you know,
That David we lost you, lost you a long time ago.
