Verse 1
You said no help was needed
You thought that all was well
But that was untrue
Just one more lie to tell
On the twelfth day of August
It was really quite obscene
That sailors were to be drowned
Some of a hundred and eighteen
The rest had already died
Two explosions sent them all to hell
As their children and widows cried
And it hit the news worldwide
It's hard to think it could be worse
This is the tragedy of the Kursk

CHORUS
The tragedy of the Kursk
A new century and summertime sadness
The tragedy of the Kursk
The Wall fell and all that madness
What was the world to find ?
It's a waste for all mankind
The tragedy of the Kursk

Verse 2
I see you're still living there
Even now so many years later
But they all lost their lives
In one hundred metres deep water
Navies from Norway and Britain too
Were willing to set to sea
But you on your vacation at your villa
And it was never ever to be
Did you really not realise the outcome ?
For mothers,brothers,sisters, and daughters
Or was your mind still numb
When the time was over run
It's hard to think it could be worse
This is the tragedy of the Kursk

CHORUS
The tragedy of the Kursk
A new century and now summertime sadness
The tragedy of the Kursk
The Wall fell and all that madness
What was the world to find ?
Its a waste for all mankind
The tragedy of the Kursk

The Ballad of The Kursk

Verse 1
Looking out of a window
Gazing down upon the street
All I see is the wet pavement
And the movement of your feet.

Verse 2
All I see is the wet pavement
And the traffic rushing by
Not any more of your outline
Just the rest in my minds eye

CHORUS
Inside this room without love
But hopefully without hate
I have this everlasting drought of love
How long do I have to wait ?

Verse 3
Not any more of your outline
Will I ever get to view
If I'm seeing someone different
But think it's really you

Verse 4
If I'm seeing someone different
Without your charm or grace
But still passing by my window
Going to another place

CHORUS
Inside this room without love
But hopefully without hate
I have this everlasting drought of love
How long do I have to wait ?

Verse 5
But passing by my window
See your feet one more time
And turn away from these steel bars
And end this pitiful rhyme

CHORUS
Inside this room without love
But hopefully without any hate
I have this everlasting drought of love
How long do I have to wait.

Inside

Verse 1
If I cast back my mind to last year
And remember the books that I read
Whilst watching the junk on the TV
And forgetting what's just been said

CHORUS
Cos' I'm reading not living a good life
Always having a book in my hand
My wife she left me for another
She really didn't understand

Verse 2
The novels,non fiction of all kinds
Including biographies too
By ghost written celebs,who can't write
And memoirs but not always true

CHORUS
Cos' I.m reading not living a good life
Always having a book in my hand
My wife she left me for another
She really didn't understand

Verse 3
But if you ask what I really like reading
It would be history that I'd put first
Whether British, American or elsewhere
It really don't matter I'm cursed

CHORUS
Cos' I'm really not living a good life
Always having a book in my hand
My wife she left me for another
She really didn't understand

Intro
This is the story of a man and two women
It's not what you think
It's just the gene pool swimming

Verse 1
She thought you were my lover
But you were just my friend
She wanted to divorce me
Bring it all to an end
But she was wrong about you
So wrong about you
Wrong about you
And will never get it right

Verse 2
When the first time I met her
She had another lover
I asked her as a sister
Could have been her only brother
But she was wrong about you
So wrong about you
Wrong about you
And will never get it right

Verse 3
I met her first five years ago
And two years later we married
She said she never loved me
Was just a burden that she carried
But she was wrong about you
So wrong about you
Wrong about you
And will never get it right

Verse 4
And now she's gone,she's left me
She's found another man
She said he was just a friend
That I will understand
But she was wrong about you
So wrong about you
Wrong about you
And will never get it right

Outro
So wrong about you
And will never get it right.

So Wrong About You

Verse 1
The lamp was red and glassy golden
As you lay my lonely side
To you then I am beholden
And I have no sense of pride
But what the future is holding here
Neither of us can surely guess
As you glide across the old oak floor
In your green and purple dress

CHORUS
The future is unknown here
it has no sense of past
The future is not written yet
It's pen and ink can't last
The future

Verse 2
When the past was just another week
And we had no sense of time
The years and months we often seek
Without your reason or my rhymes
The future was a distant voice
Like the moon with setting suns
You opened up a yellow door
My smile and yours redone

CHORUS
The future is unknown here
It has no sense of past
The future is not written yet
It's pen and ink can't last
The future

Verse 3
You open up the window wide
And hear the chaffinch sinking
It's song is one of earthly pride
Think of you and blue bells ringing
The future is not fixed or found
It has no sense of today or then
Like this song it has no constant rhyme
It's just a fool or comedienne

CHORUS
The future is unknown here
It has no sense of past
The future is not written yet
It's pen and ink can't last
The future.

Verse 1
Long legged Lucy
Was the girl of my youth
Long Legged Lucy
Was 100% proof
Of the days of devlish drinking
And the nights of pure delight
When music was our religion
As we waited for the light
But where are you now Lucy ?
Over forty years later
Oh where are you now Lucy ?
Now time is just a traitor
Where are you right now.

Verse 2
Long legged Lucy
I wandered through the years
Long legged Lucy
Did you follow your career ?
As a dancer and a singer
You disappeared from sight
As the stage was your religion
Have they dimmed the lowered lights ?
But where are you now Lucy
Over forty years later
Oh where are you now Lucy
Now that time is still a traitor
Where are you right now ?

Verse 3
Long legged Lucy
Are you still upon the stage
Long legged Lucy
As I turn another page
Of the website I am watching
And see a poster for a show
Those songs are your religion
And even I am bound to know
That you are still out there Lucy
Even forty years later
You are still performing Lucy
Though time is still a traitor
There are you right now.

Long Legged Lucy

Verse 1
As I sit by the radiator rust
With the winter getting older
I'm thinking of the summer sun
Whilst the frost and I get colder

Verse 2
Don't think of spring time tulips
It just depresses me once more
In this broken down apartment
Where the nails come through the floor

CHORUS
I'm trawling through our past times
With the good years still before us
More decades that were warmer
Friends and family to support us
That was then
Oh yeah that was then

Verse 3
Watch our for deadly damp walls
As the autumn leaves stop falling
Now November has passed me by
And I miss your voice still calling

Verse 4
You left on the first of April
What kind of joke was that
But I'm no longer laughing
Just coughing at the thermostat

CHORUS
I.m trawling through our past times
With the good years still before us
More decades that were warmer
Friends and family to support us
That was then
Oh yeah that was then

Verse 5
But the heating system's still broken
And the rotten windows let the snow in
If you came back to see me soon
You'd find my heart'd stop beating

CHORUS
I'm trawling through the our past times
With the good years still before us
More decades that were warmer
Friends and family still to support us
That was then
Oh yeah that was then.

That Was Then

Verse 1
Do you think about me often ?
Do you recall me at all
Those years we had the best of
Before the night began to fall
When we were young and early lovers
When our hearts were totally insane
We we had no sense of restraint
On the way to Yew Tree Lane

CHORUS
Yew Tree Lane- where all lovers went
Yew Tree Lane-with our passion spent
Yew Tree Lane-those were the best of days
Yew Tree Lane-I'll remember you always

Verse 2
When the mist had descended
When the fog began to fall
I still heard your sweet voice speak
I saw you stand so tall
You were wonderful to me
Oh if I could see you once again
With regrets and no pain
On the way to Yew Tree Lane

CHORUS
Yew Tree Lane-where all lovers went
Yew Tree Lane-with our passion spent
Yew Tree Lane-those were the best of days
Yew Tree Lane-I'll remember you always
