“Martha”

Operator, number, please: it’s been so many years
Will she remember my old voice while I fight the tears?
Hello, hello there, is this Martha? this is old Tom Frost,
And I am calling long distance, don’t worry 'bout the cost.
'Cause it’s been forty years or more, now Martha please recall,
Meet me out for coffee, where we’ll talk about it all.

And those were the days of roses, poetry and prose
And Martha all I had was you and all you had was me.
There was no tomorrows, we’d packed away our sorrows
And we saved them for a rainy day.

And I feel so much older now, and you’re much older too,
How’s your husband? and how’s the kids? you know that I got married too?
Luck that you found someone to make you feel secure,
'Cause we were all so young and foolish, now we are mature.

And those were the days of roses, poetry and prose
And Martha all I had was you and all you had was me.
There was no tomorrows, we’d packed away our sorrows
And we saved them for a rainy day.

And I was always so impulsive, I guess that I still am,
And all that really mattered then was that I was a man.
I guess that our being together was never meant to be.
And Martha, Martha, I love you can’t you see?

And those were the days of roses, poetry and prose
And Martha all I had was you and all you had was me.
There was no tomorrows, we’d packed away our sorrows
And we saved them for a rainy day.

And I remember quiet evenings trembling close to you…

Tom Waits from the album Closing Time


#107

A great song from one of my absolutely all-time favourite albums.


#108

Mik, I have this as part of a 5 disc set ( Tom Waits first 5 albums ). This week inbetween patients at work I had this on the headphones in my office whilst writing notes. Martha is one of those songs that stops you in your tracks. You`re right there as the old man 40 years down the line. I just stopped writing and stared out the window. Beautiful track.


#109

Has to be this this week!


#110

Maybe this could be an excuse for us all to get together for a gig ? What with Fish not touring for a while, I think just about everyone on here likes Anathema???

I don`t listen to them but you know me for a party.:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


#112

For My Next Trick I`ll Need A Volunteer - Warren Zevon


#116

I Love this :wink:


#117

I know it’s only Tuesday but nothing will top this for the rest of the week. The term ‘Big Music’ was bandied about in the early eighties, but this song summed it up for me.


#118

Quite a bit of a Zeppelin week on hols so I’m going for Dazed & Confused, nothing to do with too much Sun either.
