Mike's Story

by Michael Coombs

Michael Coombs remembers his youthful adventures and talks about recovering from a head injury.

In a world where people aren't patient

And feel a need to finish my sentence

There's nothing to catch, and nothing to fear 

So take that look from your eyes

Don't turn away, or talk over my head

I still hear, I'm not dead

I look drunk thoI haven't had a drink

Before you judge me stop and think

 

Chorus

Don't change the subject because I've something to say

Like a bird outside it's cage

Trying to stay on the page

In a world where I feel written out

 

 

Everyone's experience is different

The size of the quake big or small

My former achievements are still part of me

So there's no need to patronise or talk down to me

See the person beyond what seems left

I'm trying so hard to express myself

Struggling re learning to walk and talk

So much quieter than I was before

 

Chorus

Don't change the subject because I've something to say

Like a bird outside it's cage

Trying to stay on the page

In a world where I feel written out

 

I don't want to be a burden

 

I'll focus on the things I can do

Don't break the flow or momentum

Try to walk in someone else's shoes

Insecurities ebb where confidence flows

What people are really like, now I know

Look where I am, look who I met

I build myself back, bit by bit

 

Chorus

Don't change the subject because I've something to say

Like a bird outside it's cage

Trying to stay on the page

In a world where I feel written out
