Been climbing trees, I've skinned my knees
She scruffs my hair in the kitchen steam
Crosswords through the bathroom door
And my sister buzzes through the room leaving perfume in the air

I shelter here some days
A high-back chair, he sits and stares
Marching-band (Boom-ching)
He reaches out and I take a

That flit between short trousers
And he talks of people ten years gone
Like scattered black 'n' whites
