Travis – Nina’s Song

How come all of the best dads are gone
The only ones left are all dumb
Hope I’m wrong again, wrong again, wrong
There’s our mum
The last time we checked she was young
But all she’s got left has gone numb
And she’s gone again, gone again, gone

There’s nothing wrong
With a song
Sung into battle
We need you now
Don’t leave us now
What a palava
Oh what a
Don’t leave me

Holding the candle too long
Burning my fingers and thumbs
Holding a candle too long
How can losing one leave you half as strong

How dare anyone sit in your chair
But somebody needs to be there
How we gonna get, gonna get there
But where is our guy
Don’t care if he’s lonely or shy
Just two legs, a shirt and a tie
We’d get by, by, by


And now you’re gone
We don’t belong
Where do we follow
How can you say
Another day
When there’s no tomorrow
Tomorrow
Don’t leave me

Holding the candle too long
Burning my fingers and thumbs
Holding a candle too long
How can losing one leave you half as strong

There’s nothing wrong
With a song
Sung into battle
We need you now
Don’t leave us now
What a palava
Oh what a

Holding the candle too long
Burning my fingers and thumbs
Holding a candle too long
How can losing one leave you half as strong
Burning my fingers and thumbs
