A Long Day in the Field

This song is by The Beautiful South and appears on the single Pretenders to the Throne (1995).

It's been a long day in the field for us all
Catching balls and dropping balls
It's been a long life in this world
Catching hearts and dropping hearts
Like hearts were meant to bounce
Like hearts were meant to bounce
I'm sure

The wave that you just missed
Could've been the big one
The one that took you there
The sunshine fills the air

It's been a night shift of a life for us all
Gaining friends and losing friends
It's been a cleaner's sort of hours
That's why we buy our flowers
'Cause when you smell of shit you love flowers

And the wind that broke your kite
Could've been the big one
To take you out of sight
Keep you snug at night

And it's hard to know just why
Why when you take shit
Should you give shit?

And the wind that broke your kite
Could've been the big one
To take you out of sight
Keep you snug at night
Keep you snug at night
