about

A sad true story about boy meets boy

lyrics

THE BOY YOU MET ON HOLIDAY

YOUR FIRST TIME ABROAD
A SHABBY HOTEL WAS ALL YOU COULD AFFORD
OFF THE STREET, ROUND THE CORNER BY THE BAY

AND AS THE WHEELS TOUCHED DOWN
YOU COULDN’T SEE A CLOUD FOR MILES AROUND
AND THE WEIGHT ON YOUR SHOULDERS SLIPPED AWAY

AND IF THINGS WENT AS PLANNED
YOU’D RUN YOUR FINGERS THROUGH THE SAND
OR THE HAIR OF SOME NEW LOVER

BUT YOUR PARENTS CONCERN
WAS THAT YOU’D FIND SOMEONE AND NEVER RETURN
LIKE THE BOY YOU MET ON HOLIDAY

AS YOU SIT IN A BAR
CONTENT THAT NO-ONE REALLY KNOWS WHO YOU ARE
AND FOR ONCEW YOU’RENOT THE ONLY ONE

SOMETIMES IT’S HARD TO DECIDE
WHAT YOU CAN TELL SOMEONE AND WHAT YOU SHOULD HIDE
AND LIFE’S NOT SO EASY WHEN YOU’RE YOUNG

AND WHEN YOU CATCH THE EYE
OF A STRANGER WALKING BY
YOU SAY NO THIS SEATS NOT TAKEN

AND AS HE TOUCHES YOUR HAND
YOU KNOW YOUR PARENTS WOULD NOT UNDERSTAND
THE BOY YOU MET ON HOLIDAY

AND HE SAID HE’D SHOW YOU ROUND
THE FORGOTTEN PARTS OF TOWN
WHERE NO-ONE EVERGOES

AND THE GLINT IN HIS EYES
YOU KNEW THAT HE WAS SAYING YOUR PLACE OR MINE
THE BOY YOU MET ON HOLIDAY

NOW YOU’RE STUCK IN YOUR ROOM
NO AMOUNT OF SUN COULD EVER SHINE THROUGH THE GLOOM
AND YOU FEEL MUCH OLDER BY THE DAY

BECAUSE YOU CAME HOME ALONE
WITH JUST A MEMORY NO ONE WANTS TO BRING HOME
OF THE BOY YOU MET ON HOLIDAY
