lyrics

As I walked out in the ups and downs
My shoes sank into the muddy ground
I saw the trees tied to the wires
The stencilled words on the stacks of crates
The secret village behind the gates
Half hidden road, half buried tyres

Red brick farmhouse like an English dream
The clouds were floating clotted cream
That dotted shadows on the land
Children's swings, a bench, a barbecue
Beyond the hedge just out of view
The empty static caravans

Those barren branches will carry fruit
Along they'll come on their long commute
And they will spill out of their vans
They'll work the orchards and fill the crates
They'll fill the silence behind the gates
With words that we don't understand

Red brick farmhouse English dream
A gravel drive that fits two BMWs
A vintage watering can
The hedge was not in leaf yet
You could see the sun set through the windows
Of the empty static caravans

A question hangs in the silent air
What if they don't come again this year?
