    Indie Geordie shore lol (yeah I know he's not from Newcastle) Don't want to sound negative but I'm guessing it's mainly teens/20s on here and basically when you invest that much of your sound, lyrics, personality into being working class to chase this dream of being famous and '' making it'', how you gunna write songs like that once your rich and famous? Obviously it ain't gunna work mate, it's not legendary, it's not the best British artist of whatever time it's just average and his next album will be really difficult and just won't work because you're a rich celebrity who rolls in certain circles that you've dreamed of doing all your life but then you'll wish you could relate again in a way proper to working class people cos that's what made you famous, rappers to rock stars, English to American all follow that same fate, only very few like say Noel Gallagher, Alex Turner, Nas even make a carreer out of it after the difficult 2nd album.

    The album is superb but this is the best track by far. Takes me back to the 80's, very Springsteen.

    Sam is a top notch lyricist, his head is certainly not buried In the sand, I say to my son who likes to write music, listen to Sam's lyrics carefully, much of it it observational about current issues, learn from it!

    My favourite track on the album, I can't stop playing it. Love the beat, guitar chords, everything (a little like early Police) and he tells a great, if sad,story.

    Have been listening to this song for some months now and it’s strange to see the images and a complete story with it that are different from the ones and the one I already had made in my mind. Good video though and the song is amazing!

    i think the buzzcut kid is gay but the other is not, i mean, who never fell in love with your straight best friend when you're growing up and not sure of your sexuality, and changes and problems at home

    For those who are a bit lost about this story... Sam is talking about his childhood in Kelson. More specifically about a friend he had called Joshua Watson and his family: the mother (Andrea) and the Godmother. It was a toxic friendship, Joshua was always looking for troubles and he got his. The Godmother was mentally ill, she was housed in by Joshua's family due to it and became a close friend of Sam's mother. Shortly after that, she killed herself. Later Joshua's family moved out to The Scottish Borders when they currently live in. Btw, Joshua and Sam were playing cowboys when the gun episode happened.
    You're welcome

      Andrew Land are you sure that’s true? I read that The Borders refers to a pub in his hometown hence “I heard you glassed a boy back in the borders”

    I've watched the lives for this with the key change, but this particular key of the song, Sam, is what always gets my eyes burning and my throat choked up.

    We were like brothers
    Everybody said we looked the same
    You a little taller, and broader, and bolder
    We were afraid of your mother
    Hell, she used to hit you so hard
    And your dad took off when you were a baby
    And you still hate me for my dad stuck around
    And pin me to the ground
    Eight years old with a replica gun pushing in my skull
    Saying you're gonna kill me if I tell
    Never did, and I never will
    That house was living hell
    I remember my mother when she found a new man
    And your mother thought she found a partner
    A father for you, no wonder, you can't stand me
    I can't stand me, too
    I can't stand me, too
    Oh, your grandmother repaired the anger in me
    Spoke to me like I was an adult
    Didn't take sides and didn't turn me against my dad
    Then she took those pills and now she's gone
    See her in the night
    In the corner of my eye
    And I see her in the night
    Heard you glassed a boy back in the borders
    Some naughty family boys are after you
    You pinned me to the wall and said my mother
    Stole your inheritance from you, oh yeah?
    Well we ain't, we ain't got a penny between us
    Holding up this tin that we live in
    You pinned me to the wall and smashed a bottle
    Your eyes the door to hell and all within

    I love this song genuinely. The lyrics are unique and you can tell they’re personal, they tell a true story. The sound fits perfectly with the mood. The video tells the story of the song very well. I adore everything I’m hearing, I’m almost crying at how beautiful the song is
    This just keeps getting better
