"Show" as written by and Billy F Gibbons....
Let the show begin
It's a sorry sight
Let it all deceive
Now I'm
Pains in me that I've never found

Let the show begin
Let the clouds roll
There's a life to be found in this world
And now I see it's all but a game
That we hope to achieve
What we can
What we will
What we did suddenly

But it's all just a show
A time for us and the words we'll never know
And daylight comes and fades with the tide
And I'm here to stay

But it's all just a show
A time for us and the words we'll never know
And daylight comes and fades with the tide
I'm here to stay

    General CommentIt's another emotionally tear jerking song by Beth Gibbons. Gosh. This just makes me tear up far too easily.

    I think its about us being decieved and the whole world being a show or an act. Quite straight forward but frail and beautiful.

    General CommentIt's just eerie and beautiful. And her voice is amazing, it's not all smooth and pure, it's like she's cracking from her grief.

    General CommentThe best of her solo songs. I don't think Paul Webb even had a credit on this one, so she did it all herself. Simply brilliant.
