Never Really Hard Enough

I am waiting for someone new
To believe in the things I do
But there’s no hope in my heart today

I know some preachers of good intent
I know seekers of heaven sent
But I don’t listen to a word they say

Like sand castles waiting for the tide
There is nowhere left for me to hide
Like the fractious cats in my backyard
I came and had a go but I was never really hard enough you know

Sure you know

I recall every opportunity I ever wasted
A thousand lies that I invented
To be anyone but me

In the small hours writing notes in pocket books
To my old flames with picture perfect looks
Nurturing a cruel love that will never ever shine

Like the bucket passed around for CND
In a time when time was led along so easily
A million useless poems to discard
I came and had a go but I was never really hard enough you know
Well now you know…

I am waiting
I am waiting…
