"Former Queen Of Spain" as written by and Brian Wright....
Now the rich man and the poor man and the former queen of Spain
Have all had someone like you, they all have gone away
And the fact that time will crawl or fly depending on the day
Makes every kiss a gift and everyone of us a saint
If that ain’t love
It’s close enough

I heard my angel crying out she’d fallen from God’s grace
She’d had enough, she drank the blood, she couldn’t stand the taste
From there to here’s a long way down but baby I can wait
I might be a fool to catch ya, let ya fall’d just be a waste
If that ain’t love
It’s close enough

I should have took a breath instead I wired my jaw shut
I breathed deep through my nose and prayed my clothes’d turned to dust
Stand naked as a babe the day I finally gave up
When all I’d say became profane I would not give a f..
If that ain’t love,
It’s close enough

My eyes wandered round the crash site for to find your missing parts
I found your head, your perfect legs and your million dollar heart
To my surprise I caught a cop he was climbing in the car
I was flashlight blind, jaws of life could not pry us apart
If that ain’t love
It’s a lot of blood

I woke up from my dream to someone screaming in the road
He’d carved your name into his chest saying “baby please don’t go”
When I woke you up you whispered wearily and cold
You said “baby shut the shades it’s just someone I used to know,
It wasn’t love. No, not like us.”
But it’s close

The day I lost my sight , I learned to fly, and I flew away
I’d check on you from time to time just to make sure you’re OK
And all at once you shot me down with a simple turn of phrase
You said “If you got a secret, you should learn to keep it safe”
Cause, that ain’t love
But it’s close enough

Now the rich man and the poor man and the former Queen of Spain…
