  1. LOST IN BLUE

From the recording LOST IN BLUE

Lyrics

Dedicated to Chelle Rose

Strangely the first three words of these lyrics were inspired by a documentary film we were watching from the League Against Cruel Sports, entitled 'A Life's Struggle'. One of the images in the film was the aftermath of an organised shoot which showed a mess of discarded champagne bottles and bullets. If this song could be a painting it would portray a beautiful, difficult life made bearable by the care and kindness of distant friends caught safely by the strings of our needy hearts.

Our thanks to Mary Alice Pollard for the use of her wonderful photography for this song.

Champagne n' bullets was all it ever gave me
Loose tongued n' weary the devil saved me
If I had a thousand miles for every step I took
Into this ruined book
I'd never make it

Thieves n' liars s'all I ever trusted
Old wheels n' broken days, this heart is busted
If these hands are worn to steal a grain a' corn, well
I'll sing for justice

Take off your shrouds of doom
For every livin' thing there is a risin' moon
Pack up your mourners robes
Hand in your broken shoes
This ain't no waitin' room
For in a line we queue to meet the loves we knew
Beyond our hell, this life
Forever lost in blue

Too many soldiers, too many mothers
Too many restless graves
Too many daughters, too many brothers
Behind a fear too brave
Too many lovers

Take off your shrouds of doom
For every livin' thing there is a risin' moon
Pack up your mourners robes
Hand in your broken shoes
This ain't no waitin' room
For in a line we queue to meet the loves we knew
Beyond our hell, this life, this life
Forever lost in blue
Forever lost in blue
Forever lost in blue
Forever lost in blue
