lyrics

The man who broke my leg
Has apologised again
So I’m spending my sick cert reading Middlemarch
Until my fibula connects

Enjoying life slowed down
To a pace I can absorb
The children poking fingers under my cast
And asking if it’s sore

Life gets serious
When you’ve more thoughts than brains
And you find that all the while you were lost
Real life never changed

I get to see what my life’s like
When I’m not around
The made-up rhymes and murder at meal times
With my wife acting out

The food she overcooked
That I then overate
My leg beside the love of my lifetime
Beauty and the break

Life gets serious
When you’ve more thoughts than brains
And you find that all the while you were lost
Real life never changed

I remember as a kid
When sick days were a gift
Time at home with my folks to myself
I mean, who knew couples kissed?

My new broken leg
Is a lesson I forget
That healing
Though it’s hidden
Is still happening
A fracture is a friend

Life gets serious
When you’ve more thoughts than brains
And you find that all the while you were lost
Real life never changed
