Saturday Night on Ludlow Station

Because I love
to be near you
I sit on a bench
in a box made
of concrete blocks
on the platform
next to you
and the others

We don't have an awful lot
of spare cash between us
There is a club
but it's two quid
which is fair enough
but there'd be
a coke on top of that

I love to listen to your voice
and your laugh
We sort of touch
every now and then
but I've seen you with Danny
and he's in work now
and will get a car soon

It's not like I would want to lay
any sort of claim on you
me being what I am
and likely to always be
I wouldn't want
to hold you back
from happiness
