Lyrics

Hammer & Chisel


Hammer & Chisel
Got my tools in the bag, not gonna listen
packing my bag
Gotta cover my back as I leave now


You’re a package on my doorstep
Wrapped in a note saying do not open
You’re a thief in the daylight
Laugh at my jokes then you take what’s mine

But you can take it all back
Put it all back in your bag now
I’m taking me back
Packing my bag and I’m leaving

Hammer & Chisel
Got my tools in the bag, I’m not gonna listen
Gonna take me away
you can stay there locked in your cage

Hey hey hey hey eh


And you can tell me that you’re sorry
As I’m stepping through the holes
that appear in your story
Say it to my face
see the crease that appears
with a look of distaste, cos
I’m taking me back

gonna put my heart back in my bag now
I’m taking me back
Taking me back and I’m leaving

Hammer & Chisel
Got my tools in the bag, so I’m not gonna listen
Gonna take me away
and I’ll leave you locked in your cage, hey







If I had time, I would be having a clear out
Pull apart our baggage, take what’s mine
And if I had time, I would be having a clear out,
throw away the memories of our life
and if I had time,
leave a little something of mine
hanging on that mirror, on the right
over my black eye


Hammer & Chisel
Got my tools in the bag, so I’m not gonna listen
see me packing my bag
I’ve gotta cover my back as I leave now


Hammer & Chisel
Got my tools in the bag, I’m not gonna listen
gonna take me away,
and I’ll leave you locked in the cage


Hammer & Chisel
Got my tools in the bag, said I’m not gonna listen
gonna take me away,
and I’ll leave you locked in the cage

Hammer & Chisel
Got my tools in the bag, not gonna listen
taking me back
taking me back and i’m leaving
