the old chair lyrics – david gray

“the old chair”

the old chair
the old chair
it gets that they don’t want it anymore
the split seams
and bad dreams
i’m fluttering like a dollar to the floor
you get to wonder what you do it for

and if you’re not there to meet me
only shadows gonna greet me
the moment i go stepping through the door

my heart pounds
i hear sounds
like laughter coming softly through the walls
the high times
turn sidelines
this game it makes a fool out of us all
you’re off but you ain’t hardly
kicked the ball

and if you’re not there to meet me
only absence gonna greet me
the moment i go stepping through the door

and if you’re not there to meet me
just what is gonna greet me
the moment i go stepping through the door
