"Special View" as written by and Peter Albert Neil Perrett....
I don’t know, I don’t wanna know
Every time you’re making love to someone
That’s OK , you’re far away
And you can discreetly have fun

Now I’m hopin, you left the curtains open
And you’re leavin’ the lights on
I cant cope, I got my telescope
And I’m reaching new heights on…

This Special View -- Oh Such a Special View

Then it’s all over
And I can’t help feelin lost without you
Near me, you can’t hear me
Whisper words of love about you

It’s kinda galling
T see that brute mauling
Your soft delicate figure
That’s the price you have to pay
Fraid there is no other way
This thing is gonna get bigger & bigger

CHORUS

Feeling Come & feelings go
It’s so hard to define them
On some occasions I lose my patience
And I slip out of alignment

If I say I’m sorry
Don’t take this pleasure from me...
This is something really thrills me,
But same time it kills me

CHORUS

Special View... Special View

    General CommentFairly self explanatory. A guy tries to deal with the pain of his girl being with someone else, "a brute", so he spies on her when she's getting undressed...

    He then gets caught but hopes if he says sorry she'll still let him look at her through his telescope.

    "This is something, really thrills me, but the same time it kills me."He's torturing himself. Kinda like crashing your old girlfriend's new date to see what a loser he is.

    The Only Ones: one of the most underrated bands ever...

    General CommentI always hated it because it was the 'B' side to the re-released AGAP and it did not appeal to me, just a filler B side. I regarded AGAP as a one "hit" wonder and didn't bother checking out the material on the albums. Oh what a mistake! I consequently never saw them live and it was only later that I discovered the beauty and genius of the songs. Now I'm obsessed and of course, "Telescopic Love" is funny and endearing, even if it isn't a top favorite. Keep the Flamimng Torch alive!
