"Cold Bread" as written by and John Patrick Vivian Flynn....
Well I'm sure you're near
And I can almost smell you
But the winds are up at the walls again

I can hear you coming
Heaven helped you coming
I believe in heaven it's a wait away

Did you learn just how I loved you?
Did you see how far I'd been?
Would you meet me in an hour?
I could tell you what I've seen
What I've seen

[Chorus]
Cold bread
Cold bread
We had

Would you whine in water
Pull your chips back in
So you crawl like a crab across black fries bridge
Suffer none to fade
Hit the homeward road
I'm a bowling green
A delivery boy

Have a heart that skips a beat
Oh come on
Roll along for free
In the middle of the morning
Swap your drinking nights with me
With me

[Chorus: x2]

I can live with dying
I can chew my bit
Play panic to my senses
And hijack my head
It's the rhythm of moving
And a rolling and a rattle
Its a giving instead
It's a well sprung bed
We can roll around forever
We can pray for all we've been
We can knock it hell for leather
We can call it all a dream
All a dream

[Chorus: x2]

For your outward bound
Remember what we found

    Lyric CorrectionSo, I've got the vinyl in front of me which contains the lyrics. It's free verse, but I'll put it into stanzas as you lot have above. Some of the lyrics written down are different from what he sings, but most are the same. Lovely song!

    Cold Bread

    Well I'm sure you're near, and I can almost smell you,
    But the winds are up at the walls again.
    I can hear you coming-Heaven helped you coming-
    I believe in heaven it's a way away.

    Did you learn just how I've missed you? (recording: "how I loved you")
    Did you see how far I've been?
    Would you meet me in an hour?
    I could tell you what I've seen... what I've seen

    Cold Bread... Cold Bread... we had.

    Put your wine (not whine) in water pull your chips back in
    I saw you crawl like a crab across black friar's bridge
    Suffer naught to fate (as in, "take no chances"), hit the homeward road,
    I'm a bowling green, I'm a livery boy

    Have a heart that (which) skips a beat
    Oh, come on! Roll along for free
    In the middle of the morning.
    Swap your drinking nights with me... with me.

    Cold Bread... Cold Bread... we had. (x2)

    Genius musical interlude.

    I can live dying, I can chew my bit,
    And play pander to my senses and hijack my head
    Eat the rhythm of moving and a rolling and a rattle.
    It's a giving instead, it's a well sprung bed,
    We can roll around forever,
    We can pray for all we've been,
    We can knock it hell for leather
    We can call it all a dream... all a dream

    Cold Bread... Cold Bread... we had. (x2)
