Favourite Song Lyrics

[Verse 1: Grian Chatten]
Did you know, I could claim the dreamer from the dream?
Make you feel, everything you've never even seen
It's been a long, a long, a long, a long, a long-long
You were my favourite for a long time

[Verse 2: Grian Chatten]
Station fires and faces rearranged
You will see beauty give the way to something strange
Yeah, It's been a long, a long, a long, a long, a long-long
You were my favourite for a long time

[Chorus: Grian Chatten]
Well, look who's just the newest clown
Thirty-five hours coming down
And the sun shines on new pavement
And you don't even feel it
It's a cry far from bed radios
And days spent playing football indoors
When they painted town with Thatcher
And they never even wanted to know ya

[Verse 3: Grian Chatten]
Feel alone, I can split the sunshine to the day?
Yeah, stick your heart to everything you say
Yeah, soon it'll be gone, be gone, be gone, be gone, be gone
You were my favourite for a long time
You were my favourite for a long time

[Interlude: Carlos O'Connell & Grian Chatten]
Favourite for a long time
Favourite for a long time
Favourite for a long time
All the pieces last forever
All the pieces last forever
All the pieces last forever
Dara-dara-dara-dara-dara
All the pieces last forever
Dara-da, dara-da

[Verse 4: Grian Chatten]
Did you know, sixties on the turn are often strange?
Yeah, now every time you blink you feel a change
And it's been a long, a long, a long, a long, long-long
You were my favourite for a while

[Bridge: Grian Chatten]
Ah, it makes sense when you understand
The misery made me another man's man
And I'm always looking over my shoulder
And each new day I get another year older
Shoulder bounce to the frame of a door?
Chewed into shape like a stone on the shore
But if there was lightning in me
You know who it was for

[Outro: Grian Chatten]
Did you know, I could claim the dreamer from the dream?
Make you feel everything you've never even seen
It's been a long, a long, a long, a long, long-long
You were my favourite for a long time
You were my favourite for a long time
You were my favourite for a long time
You were my favourite for a long time
