Lyrics

The Old Man and The Fiver
Craig Moreau


Saw the old man on the street living rough and down and out
So I stop and take a moment to see what this old man's about
I’m not searching for a reason I'm just looking in and reaching out


I take a fiver from my pocket and I place it in his hand
He says I promise I won’t drink it I said brother it don't matter where it lands
Be it food or wine or whisky take your comfort where you can


Chorus:
‘Cause we all got our demons failed ambitions guilty feelings
For things that we did and we ain't done
And time ain't never healin' broken hearts just numbs the feelings
That we felt way back when when we were young
That fiver in your hand is to help me understand where I went wrong


I listen to him talk of failing health and fading mind
How he drank away a fortune wasted love and wasted time
How regrets are far from reasons to change
And forgiveness is sublime


Chorus:
‘Cause we all got our demons failed ambitions guilty feelings
For things that we did and we ain't done
And time aint never healin' broken hearts just numbs the feelings
That we felt way back when when we were young
That fiver in your hand is to help me understand where I went wrong
