The Flag

Words & Music by Steven Page

 

The phone rings, it's early, it's seven o'clock.

He says sorry I woke you, but I just had to talk

you know last night, remember when I

tried to choke you?

I didn't mean it, I was drunk, it was only a joke

you should know that by now,

when the chequered flag comes down,

no one no one no one has won the race.

 

The next night he's over and over and under

and after he's finished she lies there and wonders.

just why does she need him and why does she stay here

and then in the darkness she'll quietly say Dear,

you've never really known that when the white flag

is flown, no one no one no one has won the war.

 

They're complicated people leading complicated lives,

and he complicates their problems by telling complicated lies

He tells her he's sorry, she tells him it's over,

he tells her he's sorry, she says over and over

You've never really known that when the white flag

is flown, no one no one no one has won the war.

 

There goes a forest and there goes a bluebird.

There goes a partridge and there goes a Go Train.

There goes an angel and there goes a steeple.

There goes a cop car and there goes an eagle.

There goes a raven and there go the ribbons.

There goes a raven and there go the ribbons.

There goes a raven and there go

The ribbons, the ribbons the ribbons

The ribbons of the flag.
