"The Case Continues" as written by Neil Hannon and Joby Vincent Talbot....
The victim was a woman a woman in her prime
The suspect was a lover he had no alibi
The weapon was a phone call in the dead of night
You know I never really thought you had it in you
The case continues

The suspect was a cruel self-motivated man
He held the victim's heart in the palm of his hand
The motive is a mystery I'll never understand
The final cut went deep down to the very sinew
The case continues

Why did the blood-stained sheets that burned turn quite so cold
My only crime was passion wild and uncontrolled
If sex were an Olympic sport we'd' have won the gold
Oh tell me that there's still a little love left in you
The case continues

The final cut went deep down to the very sinew

The case continues

The victim is in shock there's not much more to say
The suspect made a smooth and silent get-away
The scars may slowly heal but they'll never go away
I only hope that one day you understand just what I've been through

The case continues

I only hope that one day you understand just what I've been though

Oh tell me that there's a little love left in you

The case continues

    General CommentI first heard this song used by a female perfomer on on an all star figure skating show and liked it enough to track down the artist.

    On one level this song sounds like a James Bond theme. It's about the sauve guy who loves them and leaves them.

    But the Bond themes never go into the aftermath of what it's like to be used and abandoned. The character in the song is female, but I think this can go either way. We all carry scars from love affairs gone bad, and carry those scars into our next relationship. The case contines.

    General CommentI agree with Arbiter, this does sound like a James Bond song, especially the amazing instrumentation. The music to this song is really quite exceptional, unusual and unique, yet very powerful at the ending. The story for the song is also really cool, a dramatic setting for something, which sadly, frequently happens.
