On My Own I’m Never Bored

On My Own I’m Never Bored
(Difford/Hewerdine)

On my own I know I’m safe
I have no need to misbehave
And deep within I have a faith
That keeps me tuning in
Each frequency will zing
Just like a chord
On my own I’m never bored

Here I sit alone at night
Punching shadows in the light
Half a moon is burning bright
Down by the sea
Its face looks right at me
Just like a prawn
On my own I’m never bored

I hear the drunk and see his shape
He never stops to take a break
He likes the brew on his cornflake
That sounds ok to me
But I must let it be
Or be ignored
On my own I’m never bored

On my own I can touch the sky
On my own I can climb a tree
I can reach the fruit from within me
Before it falls
Without getting bored
Bored with you
Being stuck with me

She lies in bed the land of nod
I know she dreams of being God
But her fingers are made of cod
And not of magic strokes
She sleeps with other blokes
I am assured
On my own I’m never bored

There was a time when I’d get pissed
But now I see a therapist
He helps me through the old red mist
He thinks I might be gay
But just like tooth decay
That feels sore

On my own I can touch the sky
On my own I can climb a tree
I can reach the fruit from within me
Before it falls
Without getting bored
Bored with you
Being stuck with me
