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 »

You sent greetings from Liverpool 
And I took the next train 
Passed by people putting flowers on graves and 
We got delayed 
When I arrived you had vanished like steam 
And left me in a diesel day 
So I walked around and spent ten pounds 
In amusement arcades 

Felt like I was in a field 
Looking for a pin 

It's a kind of loneliness 
It's a kind of emptiness 
But I'm not trying I'm just rehearsing 
For the perfect day 

When I want you, I'll come looking for you 
Yes I will, yes I will, yes I will. 

I took a spoon to the swimming pool 
To drain your trace away 
And I changed my name so only my looks remain 
And if looks could kill I'd need a license for my face 
'Cos where his fists put bruises 
A scheming smile now takes their place 

Felt like I was in a field 
Looking for a pin 

It's a kind of loneliness 
It's a kind of emptiness 
But I'm not trying I'm just rehearsing 
For the perfect day 

When I want you, I'll come looking for you 
Yes I will, yes I will, yes I will.
