David Keenan – The Friary Lyrics

Memories of razor green
Floating down your sofa seams
We’re so happy, happy as Larry

Flicking ash into a glass
Friend or foe from recent past
You ignite me
Traffics light invite me

Floating down your street
Dodging bottles as we seek
Got a face in the rain
He says he’s out of the game

He was a loveable rogue
He never did what he was told
Same fella’, went to school in the dalla

From boy O’Reilly
Yeah you marched right beside me
Yeah man, you took a vacation
Of sleep deprivation
They let you out on probation
Oh, meet me at the station
Won’t you find me?
C’mon and find me

See you at the friary
Know you won’t deny me
See you at the friary
Know you won’t deny me, no
Sure you won’t, you said you wouldn’t, say you won’t?

See all them ladies of the night
They’re all polishing their knives
And they dwell in the alleys
Sea gave the scallies

Hopelessly in love
With the working man’s drug
Yeah I stumble as I amble
Through the disappearing bramble
The cobble understone
The tight roofs upon the homes
Derelict and sea-turned
Relics of my old turns

Singing of to the kids
Running through the china bridge
Wakes me from my slumber
I wonder

From boyle O’Reilly
Yeah you marched right beside me
Yeah man, you took a vacation
Of sleep deprivation
They let you out on probation
Oh, meet me at the station
Won’t you find me?
C’mon and find me

See you at the friary
Know you won’t deny me
See you at the friary
Know you won’t deny me
Yeah, I’m gonna see you at the friary
No I know, no no no you won’t deny me
Gonna meet you at the friary
Know you won’t deny me, no
Sure you won’t, you said you wouldn’t say I won’t?
