"Your Face" as written by and Graham Downey Paul (gb2) Brennan....
I was thinking 'bout your face
Rolling up the river
And I was worried what you thought about
and I'm sorry if I can't remember
There's no time for crying
Only time for trying now

I remember your name
'Cause you sang it to me often
And I was lying down beside
The river where we met
But now your face is hiding
Something, something, it's burning

And I'm gonna wait for you
I've got to send this tape to you
And I'm gonna wait for you
'Cause I know something about you

Something about the things you do
And there's something about your voice
That reams in the big stars
It reams in the big stars

There's a road that follows
Everywhere you go
I stole your golden chaser
But I never meant to steal
It's not in my nature
But if you try again I'll fall
And if you wanna say it all
And all you have to do is give
Give me that look again
Give me that look

'Cause I'm gonna wait for you
Got to send this tape to you
And I'm gonna wait for you
And I'm gonna wait for you
And I'm gonna wait for you

    General CommentThis song is about making tapes for your mates, in the summertime, or meeting a girl and really, really wanting her to get into your music. A song about being young.

    General CommentReally happy song to me. I love the bits in set list from charlie and the chocolate factory. Really mellow tune. I think niteflite nailed the meaning though. When your trying to win a girls affection, your thinking of everything that might work. Even making her a tape. Top notch song

    General CommentAh, I loved making tapes, and receiving tapes eons ago. These days it's playlists through a shared URL - not the same but still sharing the magic.

    Great track.
