the rocking chair lyrics – beautiful south

here i walk, here i walk
looking for an angel’s wings in the den of the hawk
here i am, here i am
with a choice between an also ran and a sun bed tan

(and you thought, you’d found your own little look)
how i misjudged, how i mistook
(and you thought, you’d found the style of your hair)
i guess tonight i’ll take, i’ll take all these troubles to the rocking chair

so i’ll take these high-heeled shoes
and yes, i’ll take these traditional views
i’ll take this deep despair
of a thirty year old square to the rocking chair

here i sit, here i sit
looking for a warming smile in a house of cold wit
here i stand, here i stand
torn between the balding drunk and no man’s land

(and they’ll tell you when you’ve reached your peak)
where the wolf-whistle rung, there’s a deafening shriek
(blowing kisses into thin air)
i guess tonight i’ll take, i’ll take these troubles to the rocking chair

so i’ll take this awkward stance
and i’ll take this s*xless dance
i’ll take this deep despair
of a thirty year old square to the rocking chair

am i skinny? a shade too fat?
my friend the cat knows all about that
am i happy? just a little sad
(here i sit, here i sit)
(looking for a warming smile in a house of cold wit)
my friend the cat knows all about that

am i skinny? a shade too fat?
(here i walk, here i walk)
(looking for an angel’s wings in the den of the hawk)
my friend the cat knows all about that

are you happy? are you happy?
just a little sad
are you happy? are you happy?
just a little sad
