Pale Imitation  Mark Knopfler 3:57

LYRICS

Once I went back and I stayed on the street
Where I used to live
Got up in the morning
Put on my boots and I crossed the road
Stood in front of our house
And went back to my tricycle times

At the end of the terrace I looked up the alley
And there he was
A little blonde boy
With a stick in his hands looking straight at me
And if he wasn’t me
Then my god, he was just like I used to be

We stared at each other
But he stared me down and I looked away
After a moment
When I turned again he was gone

I don’t think I ever became half the man
That I used to be
The warrior captain
The bold pirate king of the sea
Nobody does me like I do
Or that’s what they say to me
But I’m a pale imitation
I’ve been keeping my secret safe with me

Amazing text. Very mysterious and perhaps personal

Great lyrics. İndeed a very personel song. Can't wait to listen.

Haunting instrumentation. A fine first impression and nice end to an album!
Hey, i`ve got a truffle dog - finally a song the ordinary man can relate too!

The person who kindly record us these songs put it on his turntable to record it, it looks just that he took too much to push the stop button to the recorder, nothing more...
You might get lucky, now and then

Maybe there is the "Back in the day" track hidden and this guy didn't noticed it, or maybe that's the lenght just for the digital download, because the hidden song is there?

By the way, where you read that lenght? I can't find that info...

Really wonderful song. He never was so personal about himself ever. This watching at himself is
mirrored in Floating Away somehow, don't you think?

Or he gets schizophrenic of course seeing other people where are no...  ;D
