Hidden Tales of Horace. Sheffield 2012

Tales From The Riverbank

Bring you a tale from the pastel fields
Where we ran when we were young
This is a tale from the water meadows
Trying to spread some hope into your heart
It’s mixed with happiness – it’s mixed with tears
Both life a death are carried in this stream
That open space you could run for miles
Now you don’t get so many to the pound

True it’s a dream mixed with nostalgia
But it’s a dream that I’ll always hang on to
That I’ll always run to
Won’t you join me by the riverbank

Paradise found down by the still waters
Joined in the race to the rainbow’s end
No fears no worries just a golden country
Woke at sunrise, went home at sunset
Now life is so critical, life is too cynical
We lose our innocence, we lose our very soul

True it’s a dream mixed with nostalgia
But it’s a dream that I’ll always hang on to
That I’ll always run to
True it’s a dream mixed with nostalgia
But it’s a dream that I’ll always hang on to
That I always run to
Won’t you join me by the riverbank
Come on and join me by the riverbank

Lyrics by Paul Weller

    • Thank you. Yes it is a brilliant and inspired location for graffiti. I have no idea who is responsible and very few people that I know have any idea. Usually between us one of us usually knows the artist. Horace artwork and words have appeared along many of Sheffield waterways along with brilliant outsider art sculptures. This one is quite hidden and makes for a tricky subject to photograph effectively. I was pretty happy with how this one turned out though. The song is a gem and seemed a fitting combination! Although the video on the link is a bit cut off I thought it was worth putting up because Mr Weller and co look so youthful. Best wishes, N 😉
