I sent off this morning
Down the road along the river
Which I take but once a year
My walk will take me by the shore
Then inland for a mile or more
From the cold sea spray

A small wood stands upon the hill
An old house near it lies in ruins
Forgotten long ago
And here in a clearing,
overgrown with moss and ivy
Is your lovely grave

A dusk I will make my way
Along the lanes and through the fields
To where my cottage is
But before I step inside for bed
I'll look up at the stars as we had
All those years ago

So here's for Uncle Pat

    hmm im not sure bout this song. I like it because it doesn't seem to have any meaning to it and it's just for fun, but that's also why i hate it - i can't get my head around it!

    to me its just like when you walk about where you grew up - like for me in the countryside in the arse end of nowhere in northern ireland, you walk about where you used tom play and everythin is deserted and the houses are totally dilapidated and you know who used to live there and now theyre gone. all bout the melody.

    One of the band members (was it Tim?) had an uncle named Pat.

    I think Tim's brother is called Pat. But, maybe this is his uncle's name. However, I think uncle Pat is someone who helped them to become well-known.

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
