about

I promised a song to my friend Will (after a beer or 3) after he put on a gig in his kitchen at his halls of residence in Salford. This is it...

lyrics

Now is the time for some DIY
You find the place and I'll find time
We'll have some questionable rhymes
With whoever we can find
We'll get all of our friends round
At least those who have the time
And we'll drink till we remember
The things that can be found
When we get up off our arses
And not sit and wait around

I've got a friend called Will
One of the best
He said "bring your guitar to my place,
And I'll sort out the rest"
So we set up in his kitchen
Wires trailing through the sink
Played songs to people I didn't know
It really made me think
It's nights like this that you remember
The things that can be found
When we get up off our arses
And not sit and wait around

The way I see things now you people have two choices
Stand around with fingers crossed or you can find your voices
If you want something to happen take steps to make it so
You only come by this way once and anyway its easier than you know

So if you want to travel
Pack your bags and go
If you love someone
Make sure you let them know
And if you want to sing a song
Go find yourself a show
Even if its in somebody's kitchen
With people you don't know

Now is the time for some DIY
You find the place and I'll find time
We'll have some questionable rhymes
With whoever we can find
We'll get all of our friends round
At least those who have the time
And we'll drink till we remember
The things that can be found
When we get up off our arses
And not sit and wait around
