Day 289 Mile 289: One Way

Day 289 Mile 289: One Way. Today I’m at my Mum’s house which presents a wonderful opportunity to charge around the woods and fields where I grew up. Returning to where one grew up can often bring on mixed emotions even if you were fortunate to have a nice childhood. It’s nice to reminisce amoung the trees and hedges.

Today’s earworm feels particularly pertinent. The details are a bit sketchy but the sentiment is spot on!

Levellers: One Way

There’s only one way of life
And that’s your own, your own, your own

My father when I was younger took me up on to the hill
That looks down on the city smog and above the factory spill
He said, “Now this is where I come when I wanted to be free”
But he never was in his lifetime, but these words stuck with me, hey

There’s only one way of life
And that’s your own, your own, your own

And so I ran from all of this and I climbed that highest hill
I looked down on to my life above the factory spill
I looked down onto my life as the family disgrace
Then all my friends on the starting line their wages off to chase
Yes and all my friends and all their jobs and all the bloody waste

There’s only one way of life
And that’s your own, your own, your own

For Bryan Wright 10/7/45 – 15/10/17. Love you always.
