Del Amitri

Del Amitri were a Scottish alternative rock band, formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 1983. 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 »

With the sweet drip of every raindrop 
Time brings you closer to me 
And with each new sign at every train-stop 
Another hour without you is consigned to history 

And with each tick of my alarm clock 
I get crazy for the days to get to you 
When I can hold you and kiss you and have you 
Instead of staring at some photo like a fool 

But as day turns to night there's this hopelessness to fight 
When I think that I might not make it through 

But honey sometimes I just have to say your name 
To hear it hanging in the air, to know it sounds the same 
And sometimes when I'm blue, I know just what to do 
To keep the blues at bay you know I only have to say your name 

So this morning I picked up the paper 
In the useless descent of the rain 
While partners in heartbreak the whole world over 
Lie and cheat just the same 
And the headlines proclaim everything has changed 
Love can't save you now 
As each little motion of my writswatch 
Holds up my faith somehow 

But as day turns to night there's this hopelessness to fight 
When I think that I might not make it through 

But honey sometimes I just have to say your name 
To hear it hanging in the air, to know it sounds the same 
And sometimes when I'm blue, I know just what to do 
To keep the blues at bay you know I only have to say your name 

When I've used up all my patience 
When your letters have been read twenty times through 
I can drink all the wine in this place of mine 
But it ain't no replacement 
It ain't no replacement for you
