The Physic Garden - Meeting Point

The Physic Garden

Play MP3

The original name of this track escapes me at the moment (doubtless something very gothic!).

I see you and you see me
Our eyes connect in mystery
Examine the agenda
As the first impressions burn into your brain

I say ‘Hi’; you say ‘Hello’
On our faces slowly shows
Our hidden agenda
As we figure out each other’s party games

In this life we meet so many people that we never see again

You come round and meet my friends
Is it rocket launch or is it journey’s end?
Re-draw the agenda
As their first impressions burn

You say ‘Hi’ and they stay low
On their faces slowly shows
Their hidden agenda
As they eye you up and wonder 'Where’s the gain?'
In this life we meet so many people that we never see again

Years may come and days may go
Time to time we cannot know
The probable agenda
As we make decisions nothing’s on it’s own

In this life we meet so many people that we never see again
In this life we meet so many people - but so few that we still know
If we leave chips on our shoulders
All this prejudice and pain
In this life
Have we got far to go?
