Title: Wild Strawberries.

Could you see my pride when I said I needed no-one

Once there was a time when I was glad to be alone

Boasting of my freedom and the ever-open door

As my chains banged noisily upon the floor.


I found you when I was tired and needed someone not to talk

Like finding a patch of wild strawberries when you're out on a country walk

Like finding a patch of wild strawberries when you're out on a country walk.




Hungry, cold and lonesome like a lighthouse in a high sea

Searching for your ship of comfort coming through the storm

As the waves grew higher, and as I feared to drown

Your hand came reaching to be found.


I found you when I was tired and needed someone not to talk

Like finding a patch of wild strawberries when you're out on a country walk

Like finding a patch of wild strawberries when you're out on a country walk.



The road was hard and stony, I was limping from the journey

Round the bend another turn came clearly into view

My weary footsteps stumbled, my failing vision blurred

A longing song was all my senses heard.


I found you when I was tired and needed someone not to talk

Like finding a patch of wild strawberries when you're out on a country walk

Like finding a patch of wild strawberries when you're out on a country walk.
