A square bashing squadie forgetting the drill 

A heart on the fringes of writing it's will 

An assassin with nothing but time left to kill 

You are needed much more than you know 


A computerised brain with a buffering screen 

Fractured feelings become a well oiled machine 

Fantasy fills a head Trying hard to stay clean 

You are needed much more than you know 


There's a strength in your presence that comforts the weak 

They join in when you smile hang on words that you speak 

Cursed by darkness reserved for the haunted unique 

You are needed much more than you know 


Tantalisingly close simple light years away 

Lie the jewels of a soul you won't put on display 

Hope to see you again on the next rainy day

You are needed much more than you know
