lyrics

Wish I could grow fresh legs beneath my old soul
I've pedalled my whole life upon a broken bicycle
The tyres grew thin till they refused finally to spin
Left me hanging by the roadside like meat in a window.

Wish I could grow fresh legs to take me back home
I pursued a love of distance and won the heart of my shadow
The years that spill bathe the other sad roadkill
Right by my side on the roadside for all time to be widows.

Carry me on shoulders
I'll just not get older
Your legs will be my legs
I'll just not get old.
Push while I steer
I can't work the gears
Your legs will be my legs
I'll just not get old.

Wish I could grow fresh legs to escape the snow
I shovelled off the pathways all I could to open doors
I'm tired of this endless ending but I can't quit
I'll centre all my selfishness on the love I have in store.

Carry me on shoulders
I'll just not get older
Your legs will be my legs
I'll just not get old
Push while I steer
I can't work the gears
Your legs will be my legs
I'll just not get old.

Don't get old
Not get old
We'll not get old.
