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. The band was formed with the original line-up of Currie (bass and vocals), Iain Harvie (lead guitar), Bryan Tolland (guitar) and Paul Tyagi (drums). Currie and Harvie are the only members of the band to remain present throughout its history. They are also the main songwriters of the group. more »

Nobody's perfect, and that's something that 
I'm sure she'll know 
'Cause trying to tell her lies from the truth at times 
Is like trying to divide ice from snow 
When I knew it was over, I jumped into a taxi 
And said, Just guess where to go 
And the driver turned about and said, 
Finding what you want is like 
Trying to divide ice from snow 

So here I sit, rolling back to bed 
Knowing love is a hazard 
That I'd never guessed 
But from this side of the morning 
I couldn't care less 

Nobody's helpless, although 
I've never felt this helpless before 
And trying to persuade myself not to think about her 
Is like trying to tell the clouds not to pour 
So I put down the bottle 
While in my head time is collapsing 
And the currents run cold 
So I can curse her memory 
But don't try telling me that she was not 
An emerald in a mountain of coal 
Or that there's a crock of cures for cancer 
At the end of the rainbow 

So here I sit, rolling back to bed 
Knowing love is a hazard 
That I'd never guessed 
But from this side of the morning 
I couldn't care less 

And she's the kind of girl who won't forgive 
But will forget 
So take me from this party, driver, 
Put me back to bed 
I wanted to be loved but just got laughed at instead 
So if this taxi is for hire 
I'll get in the back 
Just to hear the friction of the tarmac and the tires 

So nobody's perfect, and that's something that 
I'm sure she'll know 
And trying to persuade myself 
Not to think about her is like 
Trying to tell the cockerels not to crow 
Or like trying to tell the striker 
Not to think about the goal 

So here I sit, rolling back to bed 
Knowing love is a hazard 
That'd I'd never guessed 
But from this side of the morning 
I couldn't care less
