"Broken Stones" as written by and Paul John Weller....
Like pebbles on a beach
Kicked around, displaced by feet
Oh, like broken stones
They're all trying to get home

Like a loser's reach
Too slow and short to hit the peaks
Yeah, so lost and alone
Yeah, trying to get home

As another pitch shatters
Another little bit gets lost
What else really matters?
Oh, at such a cost

Like a loser's reach
Too slow and short to hit the peaks
Yeah, he's lost and alone
Yeah, a lot of folks stay home
(Yeah, now you go home)
(Yeah, now you go home)

And another pitch shatters
Another little bit gets lost
Tell me what else really matters
Oh, at such a cost

Like pebbles on a beach
Kicked around, displaced by feet
Oh, like broken stones
They're all trying to get home

Like a loser's reach
Too slow and short to hit the peaks
Yeah, he's lost and alone
Yeah, trying to get home

Trying to get home
Trying to get home
Like broken stones
Oh, trying to get home
Trying to get home
Like broken stones

    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.
