"Rockferry" as written by Bernard Butler and Aimee Ann Duffy....
I'd move to Rockferry,
Tomorrow
And I'd build my house, baby
With sorrow

I'd leave my shadow,
To fall behind
And I wouldn't write to you
Cause I'm not that kind

The midnight trains are boarding
All wrap up 8s
I pick my load and I fill my truck
Before it?s too late

I leave the stars to judge
My every move
I'm not going to think of you, oh
I'd get the blues

There's no sleep on the journey
Away from time
A bag of songs and a heavy heart
Won't make me down

I'll give it all my strength and my mind
I'll make this decision with or without

I'd move to Rockferry,
Tomorrow
And I'd build my house, baby
With sorrow

I'd leave my shadow,
To fall behind
And I wouldn't write to you
Cause I'm not that kind
Not that kind

Rockferry, not that kind

Rockferry...

    General CommentThis song sounds nothing like anything released in the last twenty years - brilliant haunting song.

    I believe this song to be about a woman who is still in love with a man who doesn't love her back. She is determined not to be the kind of desperate girl who keeps clinging at a relationship that's not there - but she knows she can't do that when she's in close proximity to her beloved. She decides to leave town with her pride intact so she can mourn her lost love privately.

    Huh?

    I have not been able to find the meaning of the second line and all other lyrics sites just have a variation on it. I suspect dodgy transcription. I had thought it was "All reprobates"

    Can anyone shed any light on it?

    General CommentNot a fan AT ALL but just thought I should mention; Apparently her grandmother lives in Rock Ferry in Wirral.
