Song Description

The tale of a lonely man

Lyrics

Man In The Corner



He puts on his coat before stepping outside
Masking the pain that he constantly hides
Pulls on the lead with the dog at his feet
They make their way slowly down the street
Opens the door to the refuge that he's found
Smiles when he sees noone's around


Sits at the table in his favourite place
Stares out the window, noone to face
Thinks about nothing, sips at his beer
People come in but he just doesn't hear
Lets his dog finish the froth and the foam
Its better than having to stay at home


Chorus

Man in a corner his eyes are all glazed
Man in the bar he drinks all day
Trying to forget the life that he chose
Refusing to let you get close



Bridge

All of his glasses stacked in a row
The dog on his lap looks ready to go
The man wants another, leans on the bar
His eyes look tired coz he's gone too far


Verse

Makes his way home, hungover and numb
Throws out the letters unread from his son
Doesn't need family, doesn't need friends
Noone around upon whom he depends
Closes the curtains, turns off the lights
Embraces the welcoming silence of the night


Chorus

Man in a corner his eyes are all glazed
Man in a bar drinks all day
Trying to forget the life that he chose
Refusing to let you get close
