Del Amitri

The band grew out of Justin Currie's Jordanhill College School band and came together after teenager Currie placed an advertisement in the window of a music store asking for people who could play to contact him. … more »

You'd better get some sleep for a change 
Before tomorrow brings you down 
By three o'clock they'll both be sitting on that plane 
Hopelessly honeymoon bound 
And I hope no one asks you to kiss this bride 
Or tie tin cans to the car 
And if friends and relations mingle outside 
You can linger at the bar 

So bring on the rainclouds and block out the moon 
Let the action begin 

You'll feel like some soap opera star 
Predictably hitting the booze 
With your standard issue broken heart 
You step into your Saturday shoes 
And you might feel better if you slapped her face 
Or slipped some pills in his wine 
But instead some voice in your head keeps saying 
You'll look back and laugh sometime 

So bring on the rainclouds and block out the moon 
Let the action begin 

Cause it's as sure as sunrise and as sure as time 
The bride will be changing and you will be crying 
And it will be raining as soon as the tide comes in 

So put on your lipstick and check that you hat's straight too 
Cause if they can go through with it you can do it too 

So bring on the rainclouds and block out the moon 
Let the action begin 

Cause it's as sure as sunrise and as sure as time 
The bride will be changing and you will be crying 
And it will be raining as soon as the tide comes in 
And it will be raining as soon as the tide comes in
