"Mansun's Only Love Song" as written by and Paul Edward Draper....
If I start this small debate
The centre of the universe is up for sale
If my melody should fall
The tune is unimportant as I said before
Or should I say it was the words, I should
Standing in grey lantern light
Mavis looking sexy through her dress, it shines
Hiding in the vestry she recites her lines
(And she says)
I can't see you, I love you, I miss you
I can't see you, I love you, I do
If I feel God watching me
I control the actions of his destiny
If my sentiments ring true
Feel him in the mirror laughing back at you
For me to tell you how it seems, I would
Standing in grey lantern light (I would)
Mavis looking sexy through her dress, it shines
Hiding in the vestry she recites her lines
(And she says)
I can't see you, I love you, I miss you
I can't see you, I love you, I miss you
I can't see you, I love you, I do
If I start this small debate
The centre of the universe is gone for sale
So my melody should fall
The tune is unimportant as I said before
Or should I say it was the words, I should
Standing in grey lantern light (I should)
Mavis looking sexy through her dress, it shines
Hiding in the vestry she recites her lines
(And she says)
I can't see you, I love you, I miss you
I can't see you, I love you, I miss you
I can't see you, I love you, I do
I can't see you, I love you, I miss you
I can't see you, I love you, I miss you
I can't see you, I love you, I do

    General CommentThe lyrics are deliberately obscure because it's really filling a gap in the progression of the albums story but it's definitely the best Mansun song in my opinion.
