"Daisychains" as written by and William Toby Martin....
Listen now my sweet and
I never meant to cause you pain
We could have spent all summer
Sitting here making daisychains

I lie awake at night
Staring at my roof
Now you're gone

For weeks I've had your pretty face
Hanging in my brain
It's suspended like the reflection
In a window pane

You hang just like a ghost
Over city streets
Now you're gone

How could I begin to finish
What I couldnt start
I'm more general hey ???
Than napolean blown apart???

Oh go now just leave
No more words please
Now you're gone

Listen now my sweet and
I didn't mean to cause you pain
I could have spent all summer
Sitting here making daisy chains

I lie awake at night
Staring at my roof
Now you're gone

    General CommentNapolean's last name was Boneparte =]. Dunno about the "General ___" bit, though. And it probably is "Sweet Anne"

    Anyways, this song is second best on the album after Dead Zoo. It seems like a song about a guy who was left by a girl and is too hurt to see her again.

    General CommentThis is my faviourate track on the album.
    Here is my take on the lyrics.

    Listen now my sweetheart
    I never meant to cause you pain
    We could have spent all summer here making daisy chains
    I lie awake at night staring at my roof

    Now, you’re gone.

    For weeks I’ve had your pretty face
    Hanging in my brain
    Its suspended like the reflection in a window pain
    You hang just like a ghost over city streets

    Now, you’re gone.

    How could I begin to finish what I couldn’t start?
    I’m more General Haig than Napoleon Bonaparte
    Go now just sleep
    No more words please

    Now, you’re gone.

    Listen now my sweetheart
    I never meant to cause you pain
    We could have spent all summer here making daisy chains
    I lie awake at night staring at my roof

    Now, you’re gone.

    General Hiag - served under Lord Kitchener.
    Also I think it's "Listen now my sweetheart"

    General CommentFirst, it's "Listen now my sweet Anne"...

    The confusing part is the bit about General Haig vs. Napoleon Bonaparte.

    There are two famous General Haig's...One was a British commander in France during WWi who was infamous for his lack of concern for the life of the ordinary soldier and sent thousands of British soldiers to their deaths in an effort to "wear out" the Germans. See link...en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    The second is probably even more famous in the US as the Secretary of State during the Reagan presidency. This General Haig worked for Nixon first and helped to negotiate the American withdrawla from Vietnam and then worked for Reagan in the 80's. When Reagan was shot General Haig is most remembered by announcing on television that "I am in charge here..". Since the US has clear rules for who succeeds the President if he has a health emergency, this was controversial....General Haig was clearly not "in charge " and had no right to claim he was. See link..en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    Not knowing which Haig they are talking about makes it difficult to understand what the lyricist is trying to say.

    General CommentRCNH36 - I had the same problem with the two G. Haigs.

    I think it's Douglas Haig (WWI) - the personality seems to fit better, but it's really impossible to tell without asking finding out directly.

    General CommentI believe this song depicts a romance of his where he has made a mistake. Now the desire to be back together is haunting him. He then refers to Haig vs Boneparte as he will continue to keep taking casualties in the hopes of this woman than retreating such as Boneparte did (island of St. Helena). This is nicely followed up by the pleading of her image to leave and followed after that by the thought of her being gone to express that it is still there. Then the last two verses are repeats of the first two to represent the looping thought that her leaving him will always torment him. Taking casualties like Haig.
