To most life’s a gift to him it’s just weight to lift.

Pennies tatood on the lids of his eyes,
this is the life of Mr. Alistar Pine

He had a secret to share just like the scar that he wears
a kind of sadness that he barely could hide.
With the time he had left to heal the hurt, did his best
but with the world there was this great divide
the lonely life of Mr. Alister Pine

but I’ll remember Mr Alister Pine

Lived in a house on my street,
just 2 doors down from me.
That victorian it was 3 stories high
The paint had long chipped away,
just like the man that did stay.
with grass that had grown ‘bout knee high
it’s the house of Mr Alister Pine

(Break- - verse progression)
The whispers we heard carried the darkest of words
what went on where that man did reside.
but they were rumours you’d find made up in some child’s mind
we could see his eyes peek through the blinds
Something sinister about Alister Pine

Memories fade and as the years slip away.
Some things get lost over time,
but I’ll remember Mr Alister Pine
(solo- chorus progression)

Alister Pine, a man short on time.
hair thin of black grey and white.
the lines on his face don’t put the story in place
at least that’s what we thought at the time
We thought we knew that old Alister Pine. I won’t forget you ...
