"Fairground" as written by and Michael James / Hucknall....
Why is it always, when I open my mouth
I clash with whatever you do
When we dance together your rhythm and tempo
Cuts through my quick step and tune
You cry, I, I, can't take anymore
But you can't find the bloody door
Oh you might think we're free
'Til we slip back into memory
We're joined by a purpose that will not release us
'Til we have come to some terms
Some love and acceptance, not hate and repentance
These skills are things to be learned
You cry, I, I, can't take anymore

But you can't find the bloody door
Oh you might think we're free
'Til we slip back into memory
I love you so
I'm stuck, can't you let go
Let's try again
This time we will be friends
I cannot change
All my tracks have been laid
Playin' the game
It's just, it's just a memory
Lost in memory
Here's to memory

    General CommentThis seems to be about a relationship, both people are in love but somehow they just can't seem to get along easily or make it work smoothly. "Lost in memory"- sounds like things were once all smooth and blissful for them, but that's no longer the case and they're desperately clinging to that memory and trying to make it work again. "You cry, I, I, can't take anymore, But you can't find the bloody door"- They're reaching the point they can't stand it anymore, but can't quite bring themselves to leave one another.

    Interestingly enough, in the Folklore biography it states the initial lyric sprang from an argument Tim had with Larry Gott before a full band jam. There were quite a few tensions within the band at the time given the pressure they were under from their record company.
