"Broken Stones" as written by and Paul John Weller....
Like pebbles on a beach
Kicked around, displaced by feet
Like broken stones - all trying to get home.
Like a loser's reach
Too slow & short to hit the peaks
So lost & alone - trying to get home.

As another piece shatters
Another little bit gets lost
And what else really matters - at such a cost?

Like a loser's reach -
Too slow & short to hit the peaks
So lost & alone - trying to get home.

Trying to get home -
Like broken stones - All trying to get home.

    General CommentCan't believe nobody's commented on this! It's one of my faves by Weller.

    The way I interperet it is the way we try so hard to complete some things but sometimes everything we can do is ever enough and we get kicked down

    Song MeaningThe essence of this song is people's lives and people never actually achieving what they want to.
