Story Behind the Song

Summery track about marriage / relationship breakup. Seeing the signs of change in love and life. Listen out for an astonishing harmonica solo by Clive Mellor of the calibre of 'There Must be an Angel' and the muscular yet mellifluous double bass of Nick Blacka (Go Go Penguin)

Lyrics

It's funny how the water always falls down to the ground
And no matter how you listen their voices make the same old sound
You hear them in the evening when the sun sinks far below
You'll hear them sing some kind of melody
Familiar as your own familiar face
You do not recognise tonight...
That's why you're sure there must be something going on...

And you notice in the mirror like you noticed once before
That there are signs of age upon you
And that gradually you notice more and more
The years that tug your skin
A prominence of bone
And while you once saw light within your eye
Your eye is dull as some old river stone
That drags the river to its heart
That's why you're sure there must be something going on
And it's tearing you apart

And there is colour in the cheek
But there is sadness in the smile
Not that there's anyone to notice
Not that anyone has noticed for a while

And you try to make a difference
You try to bluff that carefree smile
And while you swim away your broken heart
It's harder by the day to feel worthwhile
And there are evenings when you wish the sun would stay
If only stay to keep you company,
To keep the night at bay
Cos all the nights are longer than they ever were
That's why you're sure there must be something going on
Cos life is nothing like before.
