about

THE CHARITY SHOP: Whilst walking down the now dilapidated High Street, past the bookies, the vape shops, the boarded up buildings where even the charity shops are moving out.

lyrics

The charity shop

In a row of terraced houses
If you walk behind the High Street
Lies a shop where footfall fears to tread

A broken sigh, dirty & faded
apologises that you made it here
Come inside & be prepared

They're all standing there, leaning all ways
Gathering dust a sad display
On the walls broken pictures & cracked mementoes
Left from lives where no-one remains

You can buy some pleated trousers
Frayed hemlines on shiny blouses
A demob suit in chestnut brown

A cloudy mirror on a painted shelf
A dog eared book, the front page missing
says, 'help us us & help yourself'

An old lady at the side of the room
The radio buzzes through the gloom
Her mug of tea is freshly made

Sorting through donated dishes
Chips to the side, cup handles missing
Her price gun says it's worth one pound
