When I was about 15 my mate and me bunked school to see an England Game
Whilst at his house, his brother was upstairs listening to Jesus and the Mary Chain
I was soon a fan of these rockers all dressed in black
Who played their tunes with some awesome feedback
I remember growing up with all my adolescent emotions going all funny
And just laying on my bed, on my own, in my room listening to ‘Just like Honey'
I was alone thinking that know one understands, but I found solace in ‘Darklands'
Well 18ys later, I hear they are playing again at Brixton Academy
So I call my old school mate up, asking him if wants to go and see
Well last night in a pub near the gig we have a few beers in 'The Admiral'
We talk about the old days over a game of pool
Inside the gig we soon find ourselves amongst other fans
The crowd rocks when they play "Never understands"
My mate asks me to go to the bar and get in some San Miguel's
But whilst at the bar, my attention is drawn towards these rock chick girls
Jesus and Mary Chain start playing tracks from ‘Psycho Candy'
Whilst I make a move on the girls and start talking to this girl called Mandy
She is with her mate from Portugal
And as the band play in background I get her number and I say I will give her a call
When I finally return with the beers my mate calls me a cu*nt
And I tell him I am sorry but it took me ages to get to the front
He gives me a sly look and calls me a lying little sh!t
I look at him blankly and he says ‘What's that on your face? Lipstick?"
He laughs, and says, ‘you never change mate, same as you were in school
Now stop chatting up those birds and pass me my beer you fool!"
And then he starts complaining that the beers not cold
But it's soon forgotten as the band start to play "Almost Gold"
After the gig on train home he asks me what gig we're going to next
But I am not listening, as I am busy answering this girl's text
We soon approach our station where have to change and say our goodbyes
With the Jesus and Mary Chain track playing in our heads of ‘April Skies'
As the train pulls into Green Park and we go our separate ways
He texts me later saying ‘good 2 c u again mate, was just like the good old days"
It was a good gig, and we had a good laugh, and I am glad I came
To see my old friends, The Jesus And Mary Chain.
