"Alfred" as written by and Andrew Hill....
I have gone away yet you still wander
Through the empty shell that we once called a home
You weren't here but I traveled with you
I wasn't there but I was always in your heart
Now I find i'm still alone

my love you can go
My love into the light sweet alfred

when I realized you weren't returning
I grew so sad that I forgot about myself
Fighting sickness to the point of dying
Never realizing what I had become
A faded thought that keeps on living

my love you can go
My love into the light sweet alfred

my love you can go
My love into the light sweet alfred

when they sent me home they didn't listen
To your cries for help to find me again
Contemplating all the fright and terror
Left behind but not forgotten in my mind
Follow me and you'll find home

my love you can go
My love into the light sweet alfred

    General CommentThis is the story of Alfred, the lover of the ghost Hungry Lucy, as told in the perspective of the ghost. There's a longer story about how the band got their name, but I don't know where to find it right now.

    The soft drumming in the beginning, combined with the synth, is a wonderful album opener.
