pete doherty – 1939 returning – 1578357 lyrics


captured clandestine
crawled into the light
knew he was in for a shoe-ing
just wasn’t to be his night

dragged out of the frozen rhine
for the motherland
and the third reich
a toe-ing’s as good as a shoeing
when it’s not to be your night
your night

tred carefully
so carefully
upon the drifting ice
fought behind enemy lines
in 1939
for germany
he sacrificed his life
caught behind enemy lines
in 1939

kids knee deep in rubble
london urchins grey with dust
packed off west in evacuation
to farmers wife green and pleasent life
far from the doodble bugs

nana doll still remembers
leaving town in worn-out shoes
now she’s back out west
in sheltered accomodation
homes for the old
where pills arent the only blues

tred carefully
so carefully
on the drifting ice
staring blank into the tv guide
in 2009
oh how it’s hurting me
i’ve only seen her twice
since she went west for the second time
since 1939
