Shattering Live Experience

This song is by Fairport Convention and appears on the compilation album Live at the BBC (2007).


Evening's dawning, missed the morning,
Slept the afternoon.
Half the day's gone, still I laze on,
Got no silver spoon.
But there's someone out there somewhere,
Some girl with my other side.
She won't know me, but she'll show me
How to treat another heart.
Life is bedlam if you let them
Kick and put you down.
They will race you, beat, disgrace you,
Push your face into the ground.
But you can get out of there somehow,
She will show you how it's done.
She's no lady, but she made me
Feel that I need a crown.
I'll repay her and convey her
My realities.
She'll respond with, condescend with
For she doesn't have to think of
For too long to read my mind.
She's a winner, no beginner,
She's a friend of mine.
