Mending

The family tapestry is full of holes
I want to mend them, will I be believed?
Maybe a few pleats and then a fold
The family tapestry has got huge holes
And places where we scorched it with hot coal
The cat has got her claws in, an own goal
Oh,Lord, I think the ghosts are here like thieves
The family tapestry has got huge holes
I want to mend them now before I leave
