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 »

I turned on a T.V. station and 
Lip-read with the sound turned down 
It was Pro-Celeb mouth-to-mouth resuscitation 
With Esther Rantzen 
 Playing the one who's drowned 

In a room next door a couple is fighting 
But isn't that just one of love's charms 
When moods change as fast as lightning 
And fifteen minutes later you're 
 Lying in each other's arms 

And you're gone 

They say that it's better to have loved and lost 
Than never to have loved at all 
But if you sit down and count the cost of 
All those losses 
There's no profit at all 

This city gets crazy at Christmas 
 Glitter guards the crucifix all over the place 
Its head gets too big for its body 
And its mouth gets 
Too big for its face 

And you're gone 

 Never throw away an old newspaper 
Everyday's rich with its current accounts 
 Prince visits Philippines and parliament debates it 
Back page, column five 
Somebody's wedding's announced 

 Sunday night's the night for loving 
And squeezing out the weekend's last drops 
 Sunday night's the night for forgiving 
 Maybe that's why 
They shut the shops 

And you're gone 

One day you wake up 
And all the pain you've given out gets returned 
But I'm not sorry now 
I've payed for what I've learned 

And you're gone 

I turned on a T.V. station and 
Lip-read with the sound turned down 
It was the Church of Christ playing the Price Is Right 
 Where everybody starves 
 While Leslie Crowther counts
