about

This track is taken from the album Paul Liddell & Delphians - LIVE. The album was recorded at a gig in a tiny room upstairs at The Grey Horse pub in Whitburn Village, Sunderland. There were only 80 people at the gig. I hope you're enjoying the intimate vibe of the album. Thanks!

lyrics

Hello Mr. Blue/how are you?
You don't look the same as you did before/I don't know you any more
Hello Mr. Green/How've you been?
You haven't changed much since we met at school/I know your face but I don't know you

Then green said:

Well I may look the same but the boy has gone
I joined the army at 21
I've got ringing in my ears and I can't get rid
Can't tell you about the things that I did

So I said:

Well I may look different but I haven't changed
My hair fell out but I'm still the same
Soft on the outside and on the inside
I look you in the eye when I'm speaking my mind

It was good to see you. Goodbye

**So give my love to your mother/and say hello to your brother
Goodbye

Well, the last time I saw Mr. Green/he didn't see me
He didn't know who the hell I was/just a man in the corner playing some songs
And then
Green shouts at the singer for his favourite song/I told him I didn't play that one
His eyes started popping like he's out of his mind
As I spoke mine and looked in his eyes
Green's face was frozen in a mask of derision
As I noticed a flicker of recognition
He put down his drink and he stood straight up
He didn't look back as the door slammed shut

Well it was good to see you/ Bye-bye
