"Fallen Angel" as written by Guy Edward John Garvey, Mark Potter, Craig Lee Potter, Richard Barry Jupp and Peter James Turner....
All the fallen angels
Roostin' in this place
Count back the weeks on worried fingers
Virgin mother what's'erface

[Chorus]
You don't need to sleep alone
You bring the house down
Choose your favorite shoes
And keep your blues on cruise control

All the gelded mongrel
Bear their teeth for you
Drag your feathers 'cross the dance floor
Throw your shapes electric blue

Don't fall to pieces on me

    General CommentIn an interview Guy said this song's about a "cool late night scene" where there's a beautiful young girl that everyone in the town is after. She then falls pregnant and the father could be one of several people and suddenly no one wants anything to do with her. Guy wrote this about a true story about a girl he knew but her and the baby and doing fine.

    General CommentI have a friend and upon asking him if he likes Elbow (because you have to like Elbow to pass in my books ;)), he told me "Yeah, they wrote a song about my godfather". Turns out it was this song... I'm yet to confirm if this is true or not but I thought perhaps it could clear up some 'rumours'.

    Oh, and when I asked him why they wrote the song, he said "Because he had an awesome life". I haven't read that much in to the lyrics yet to decide whether this song is about him, but it could well be.

    I suppose the lines "You don't need to sleep alone
    You bring the house down" would explain the 'awesomeness' of his life.

    I don't know. It could all be bullcrap, but this is how I'm going to think of it.
