The Divine Comedy – Absent Friends x

Absent friends, here’s to them
And happy days, we thought that they would never end.
Here’s to absent friends.

Little Jean Seberg seemed
So full of life, but in those eyes such troubled dreams.
Poor little Jean.Woodbine Willie couldn’t rest until he’d
Given every bloke a final smoke before the killing.
Old Woodbine Willie.

Steve McQueen jumped the first one clean
But the great escape he’d tried to make was not to be.
Maybe next time Steve.

Laika flew through inky blue
‚Til Laika neared the atmosphere and Laika knew
Laika’s life was through.

Oscar Wilde was a lonely child.
He fought and won acceptance from the world.
They smiled, they laughed, they praised,
They drove poor Oscar to his grave.

Absent friends, here’s to them,
And happy days, we thought that they would never end,
But they always end.

Raise your glasses then to absent friends.

08-01-2011 – Neil Hannon – My Lovely Horse

My lovely horse, running through the field
Where are you going, with your fetlocks blowing in the wind?

I want to shower you with sugar lumps, and ride you over fences
Polish your hooves every single day, and bring you to the horse dentist

My lovely horse, you’re a pony no more
Running around with a man on your back, like a train in the night…


30-12-2010 – The Divine Comedy – I like

I like your nose, I like your hair
I like you clothed, I like you bare
I like your boots, your skirts and your blouses
I like your suits, your shirts and your trousers
I like your mild political stances
I like your wild spontaneous dances
I like the way you drive me insane, morning, noon and night

I like you cause you’re sexy
I like the sexy things you dress in
I like it when you’re sitting next to me whispering sexy things
I like you cause you like me
I like the poems that you write me
I like the pictures that you thoughtfully draw for me
They make me look all right
Oh yeah, I like, I like, I like

I like the way you make me laugh
I like your brain, both left and right half
I like the songs you sing when you’re bathing
I like your dog when he’s behaving
I like your car, you curse like a trooper
During a hard reversing manoeuvre
I like the way we kiss and we make up after a fight

I like you cause you’re sexy
I like the sexy things you dress in
I like it when you’re sitting next to me texting me sexy things
I like you cause you like me
I like the poems that you write me
I like the pictures that you thoughtfully draw for me
They make me look all right
Oh yeah, I like, I like, I like

I like you cause you’re crazy
I like the way you do whatever you like
It constantly amazes me, baby please stay with me tonight
Oh yeah, I like, I like, I like…


20-12-2010 – ‪The Divine Comedy – Tonight we fly – Duke Special‬

Tonight we fly
Over the houses
The streets and the trees
Over the dogs down below
They’ll bark at our shadows
As we float by on the breeze

Tonight we fly
Over the chimney tops
Skylights and slates –
Looking into all your lives
And wondering why
Happiness is so hard to find

Over the doctor, over the soldier
Over the farmer, over the poacher
Over the preacher, over the gambler
Over the teacher, over the rambler
Over the lawyer, over the dancer
Over the voyeur,over the builder and the destroyer,
Over the hills and far away

Tonight we fly
Over the mountains
The beach and the sea
Over the friends that we’ve known
And those that we now know
And those who we’ve yet to meet

And when we die
Oh, will we be
That disappointed
Or sad
If heaven doesn’t exist
What will we have missed
This life is the best we’ve ever had


14-11-2010 – The Divine Comedy – Frog Princess

I met a girl, she was a frog princess
I guess I ought to make it clear
That I saw nothing through her see-through dress
Until she whispered in my ear
You don’t really love me and I don’t really mind
‚cause I don’t love anybody, that stuff is just a waste of time
Your place or mine?
I met a girl, she was a complete mess
I should’ve left her well alone, but oh no, not me
I had to see if underneath that dress
Her heart was really made of stone
You don’t really love me and I don’t really mind
‚cause I don’t love anybody, that stuff is just a waste of time
Your place or mine?
I met a girl, she was a frog princess
And yes I do regret it now
But how was I to know that just one kiss
Could turn my frog into a cow?
And now I’m rid of her I must confess
To thinking ‚bout what might have been
And I can visualize my frog princess
Beneath a shining guillotine
You don’t really love me and baby that is alright
‚cause I don’t love anybody,
I come and go through peoples love-lives
Your place or mine?


07-11-2010 – Divine Comedy – Gin Soaked Boy‬ – but who am i?

I’m the darkness in the light
I’m the leftness in the right
I’m the rightness in the wrong
I’m the shortness in the long
I’m the goodness in the bad
I’m the saneness in the mad
I’m the sadness in the joy
I’m the gin in the gin-soaked boy

I’m the ghost in the machine
I’m the genius in the gene
I’m the beauty in the beast
I’m the sunset in the east
I’m the ruby in the dust
I’m the trust in the mistrust
I’m the Trojan horse in Troy
I’m the gin in the gin-soaked boy

I’m the tiger’s empty cage
I’m the mystery’s final page
I’m the stranger’s lonely glance
I’m the hero’s only chance
I’m the undiscovered land
I’m the single grain of sand
I’m the Christmas morning toy
I’m the gin in the gin-soaked boy

I’m the world you’ll never see
I’m the slave you’ll never free
I’m the truth you’ll never know
I’m the place you’ll never go
I’m the sound you’ll never hear
I’m the course you’ll never steer
I’m the will you’ll not destroy
I’m the gin in the gin-soaked boy

I’m the half-truth in the lie
I’m the why not in the why
I’m the last roll of the die
I’m the old school in the tie
I’m the spirit in the sky
I’m the catcher in the rye
I’m the twinkle in her eye
I’m the Jeff Goldblum in „The Fly“
but
Who am I?


1-11-2010 – Duke Special – Our Love Goes Deeper Than This‬ – mit The Divine Comedy


She loves me once
Loved me twice
I broke her heart and left her reeling
I could not look her in the eyes
I could not face where this was leading

I know that I should lose her now
It’s true, I don’t deserve her
And though I love her til I die
I know that I must leave her

But she said no
Our love goes deeper than this
But she said no
Our love goes deeper than this

A scent arose
A blackened rose
To atone for my mistreating
But when she pressed it
To her breast it
Pierced her flesh and left her bleeding

I know that I should lose her now
It’s true, I don’t deserve her
And though I love her til I die
Now I must desert her

But she said no
Our love goes deeper than this
But she said no
Our love goes deeper than this
Even though
There’s poison in each kiss
She said no
Our love goes deeper than this

I know I can’t undo what’s done
It’s true, I don’t deserve her
And though I’ll love her til I’m gone
Now I must desert her

But she said no
Our love goes deeper than this
But she said no
Our love goes deeper than this
Even though
There’s poison in each kiss
She said no
Our love goes deeper than this
