lyrics

There's a thousand or more of us here, Jack
And in our own way we're all
Just seeking some solace in
Trying to talk to a wall.
I know you're not here, Jack.
It's just a list of names.
But it's the closest I've got
To being able to stand at your grave.

There must be a dozen J. Carpenters here,
You're in good company.
There was a time I wished, Jack
One of them was me

You wouldn't recognise Wipers now,
It's come back from the dead.
The guns are long silent now....
Except the ones in my head.
Mother, she couldn't make it.
We buried her back in June.
It broke her heart, Jack
The day that she heard about you.

There must be a dozen J.Carpenters here,
You're in good company.
There was a time I wished, Jack
One of them was me

Christ, I miss my big brother.
I've tried to walk in your shoes.
I don't care how long it takes them to find you, Jack,
I'll be there when they do.
"Fight the good fight" you once told me,
As we trudged home in the rain.
I swear I'll never give up, Jack,
Not while there's blood in my veins.

There must be a dozen J.Carpenters here,
You’re in good company
I just wanted you to know, Jack
None of them are me

There must be a dozen J.Carpenters here,
And it's just one little town.
I've got to live for us both now,
And Jack I won't let you down.
