Fish from the paper, fresh from the sea
The cracks in the pavement, the city in siege
I don't know where to replace it or who to believe
Can't find on the pavement or lay on his knees

    LOL@mirrorball95 I don't agree with you at all. Paul Weller strikes gold in my opinon. Writing songs and creating music before you were a twinkle in your fathers eye
