lyrics

I don't need to be a hero
I'm just happy to be all you know
and the roads are getting vicious
so I'm wrapping you in cotton wool

every last time I could see you
was the last time I could feel love

Poppy on your first trip home
I never drove so slow
Poppy on your first trip home

your momma's looking sleepy in the mirror
but she's watching you
like she owes someone a million
and I wonder who I owe mine to

every last time I could see you
was the last time I could feel love

all there is to say is that no-one feels the same as I do
with you in the back, who am indebted to?
