Life On The Mezzanine – new Chilly Dogz Song

LIFE ON THE MEZZANINE

ON THE ROAD FROM HOPEFUL

TO COULD HAVE BEEN

HE PLAYED LOTS OF STAGES

FEW HAD EVER SEEN

TRIED HARD TO WORK OUT WHAT

DOES IT ALL MEAN

NOW THAT HE IS STUCK HERE

ON THE MEZZANINE

 

WAITING, WAITING, WAITING

FOR THE LIFT THAT NEVER COMES

WAITING, WAITING, WAITING

FOR THAT LIFT THAT NEVER COMES

 

IT’S A HARD LIFE

ON THE MEZZANINE

HARD LIFE

ON THE MEZZANINE

 

HE’S JUST A MILLWALL BOY

THAT COMES OUT OF ELTHAM

WHEN HE SANG THE BLUES

YOU KNEW THAT HE FELT ‘EM

ALWAYS PLAYED WHENEVER ASKED

NEVER PASSED UP A GIG

EVERYBODY WONDERED WHY

HE’D NEVER MADE IT BIG


WAITING, WAITING, WAITING

FOR THE LIFT THAT NEVER COMES

WAITING, WAITING, WAITING

FOR THAT LIFT THAT NEVER COMES

 

IT’S A HARD LIFE

ON THE MEZZANINE

HARD LIFE

ON THE MEZZANINE

 

IN HIS CAR WITH HIS GUITARS

HE PLAYED A LOT OF TOWNS

ACROSS GEORGIA THROUGH DEPTFORD

LIVED A LOT LIKE TOWNES

DRINKING HARD ON THE ROAD

WRITING SONGS ON THE FLY

ABOUT WOMEN AND BOOZE

THAT MOSTLY MAKE YOU CRY

 

WAITING, WAITING, WAITING

FOR THE LIFT THAT NEVER COMES

WAITING, WAITING, WAITING

FOR THAT LIFT THAT NEVER COMES

 

IT’S A HARD LIFE

ON THE MEZZANINE

HARD LIFE

ON THE MEZZANINE
