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 »

Well it might not be important to you now
When the night is young and everyone's around
And the music flows
Through your doped up Disney mind.

But you'll be crying like a baby when it comes
And you will try it anyway you can
To find a place to run, 'cause it ain't no fun
In party town, when loneliness comes crashing down.

And you'll be hurting in a way you can't explain,
And all those pretty things you love will look so vain.
'cause the laughing crowd is such a hopeless sound
When loneliness comes crashing down,
Yeah, when loneliness comes crashing down.

And you might not think about
Just what happens now as your guests collect their coats.
In an empty house full of ashtray doubts
Your formless future floats.

So the bad and beautiful still remain
With their depleted bounty of bad cocaine, we love the house
But we can't quite place the name.

And it might not be important to you now,
When the night is young and you are loose and loud.
'cause there ain't no sound in party town
Quite like loneliness crashing down.
