Almost There

Recorded with Arlenderre in a disused factory outlet on a run down industrial estate in Northern England. The performance was eventually abandoned when the police arrived and stopped the show and almost caused a riot attempting to disperse the crowd of about 2000 fans. Arlenderre was arrested for disturbing the peace, breaking and entering and endangering public safety. He spent the night in police custody, but was later released without charge when it was revealed that he'd actually raised £10,000 for a local charity.



Almost there and nowhere near at all

Thinking it better I jump than I fall

Standing with my back against the wall

Not giving in to anyone

Not being made to crawl

 

Never realising what I'd done

Never saw two of us then, only one

Not knowing what I had till it was gone

Not caring much about anything

Only a place to run


Then I had a guiding light

Now it doesn't shine so bright

I lie awake alone at night

Knowing  I was wrong

Missing you so much, you see

Though I have no right to be

Wishing you were here with me

Here where you belong 

 

Almost there and still just out of touch

How could I give so little

And take so much?

Letting down the only one I trust

Had to be the heart of everything

Had to be me, not us
