"Sarah" as written by Philip Parris Lynott and Gary Moore....
Sarah
Won't you tell me your name
I've been waiting here for hours
In the garden by the flowers
You're so shy
So just open your eyes
The boys all form a line to be written out in time
A long, long, long, long time ago

Emergency
I think I am falling apart
Emergency
I think I am losing the fight
And I don't know if I can do it
I don't know if I can try
I don't know if anyone asked me the reason I lied
She sighed

Sarah
Is she your new best friend
One day it will end, you know it will
You're so shy
So just let it fall apart
Let it stumble in the dark
With the razors in your heart
A long, long, long, long time ago

Emergency
I think I am falling apart
Emergency
I think I am losing the fight
And I don't know if I can do it
I don't know if I can try
I don't know if anyone asked me the reason I lied
She sighed
She sighed

Emergency
I think I am falling apart
Emergency
I think I am losing the fight
And I don't know if I can do it
I don't know if I can try
I don't know if anyone asked me the reason I lied
She sighed
She sighed

    General CommentThe "emergency" bit in this song sounds exactly like the chorus of the theme from "The Neverending Story".

    General CommentSo sad.

    Like, there was a relationship but it just didn't work, no matter what they tried. And he felt kind of helpless because of it.

    General CommentThanks to eskimo joe for writing such an awesome "sarah song", I've finally found one that I like!

    To me, it sounds like he's talking about this girls fight with depression or something and there's nothing he can do. He says, "you're so shy" and the mention of the "razors in your heart" sounds pretty ominous.
    "emergency", sounds as if he's struggling to help her with this.

    I'm not sure about the lines about it being a "long time ago" though....

    Awesome song either way.
