Parents

Parents
(Difford/Dunnery)

They danced together
On vinyl and on stone
That secret moment
That held them both together
That was their life exciting without vogue
Dancing like babies on two elastic bands in the night

Oh how they danced
Oh how they cried
They got so many dreams

The record player
Span underneath the lampshade
The Mantovani
Trickled through the amp
Those velvet shoulders
Glided in thin air
Smoking Bachelors drinking from the bottles on the shelf

Oh how they danced
Oh how they cried
They got so many dreams
Oh how they sent me to bed
Oh how they played with my games
They got so many dreams

They flew away like paper in the wind
Life is too short to mess around with anything in love

Oh how they danced
Oh how they cried
They got so many dreams
Silence is ours
Each image that fades
Returns like a moon
My children look on
As I’m looking back
They see in my eyes
Oh how he dances
Oh he cries
He’s got so many dreams in his eyes
