All the joy in my life had rotted away,
I saw a vision in blue and my blues flew away.
And just for a second I truly believed,
Though I don't know what in.

We tried to talk to each other,
But the words that came out of our mouths
Were carried away on the wind,
Which turned them inside out.

In desperation I tried
To communicate with my eyes--
When all you've seen is people's pain,
It's hard to feign surprise.

And we just smile.

    General CommentThis is possibly my favourite song ever- which is obviously impossible to decide, is this song actually better than Atmosphere? Maybe.

    I love the guitar, it reminds me of Durutti Column, and is just so heartbreaking. You can hear what is being sung, but also ignore the lyric and just hear Ians' as a sound in the mix.

    Its a proper pop song, it doesn't hang around for ages, not finishing, it comes and does its job, and then goes home, with a proper ending not a fade out.
