"All Across The Sands" as written by Ian George Brown and John Squire....
But of an impressive romance
Scattered all across the sands
A secret safe with all the world
Too vain to seem so capable

Can you hear it calling
Do you feel warmer
As the hired hand's exposed

How can a pretty painting show
Send them all packing out to Hell
A freight train laughs and rattles by
You kissed the girls and made them die

And I'll never come here again
Ah, we will never come here again
Ah, we will never play here again, again

After her call
After her call
After [sic] her call
And she calls

    General Commentyeah, it's about a serial killer who buried his victims in the sand.

    Several early Roses songs sound happy but the lyrics are kinda scary.

    General CommentYou're all wrong. This song is about when they played an early gig at the Bluebird Club in Barrow-in-Furness and they were booed off. Hence we will never play here again. Across the sands refers to Morecambe Bay.
