More Lives Than One

from War Baby: Hope And Glory [1984] by Tom Robinson



Written as theme song for a BBC TV Play For Today of the same title, directed by Michael Darlow


Day after day I've been living in dread
Cheating at work and lying in bed
There's no hard feelings, just a little regret
I could have been lying in your arms instead
I'm glad that I married and I love my kids
I wish I'd never met you, but I'm glad that I did
So I'm sitting in the middle
Trying to fit in more lives than one

Day after day I've been slipping away
Playing the games I don't wanna play
Sooner or later there's a reckoning day
I'm so, so sorry - but what can I say ?
I feel like a heel but I can't decide
Between the life I always wanted
And the loving that I like
It's a bitter situation overtaking
More lives than one
It's a bitter situation
And it's taken more lives than one


from War Baby: Hope And Glory [1984], released January 31, 2013
Written & produced by TR, recorded at Satril Studios, London
All instruments programmed / played by TR and Kendall Wrightson.
