"Thirst for Romance" as written by and Simon Aldred....
Remember me with a smile on my face
Replace the tears in your memory with
Two heroic arms that twisted lids from jars
And dragged you home after drinking in the park

Remember me with the wind in my sails
Replace the night nurse that sits at my bedside
With a whistling heart that played piano in the dark
And cheered you every step of the way

I still thirst for romance, I still thirst for romance
And the sand between my toes
Darling, I, I seen demons dancing
I seen demons dancing across factory floors

Remember me holding court in Henry's bar
Poking holes in the so-called left
Buried my mother, father, sister, brother, lover
So why'd they treat me like a child?

I still thirst for romance, I still thirst for romance
And the sand between my toes
Darling, I, I seen demons dancing
I seen demons dancing across factory floors

I still thirst for romance, I still thirst for romance
And the sand between my toes
Darling, I, I seen demons dancing
I seen demons dancing across factory floors

I still thirst for romance and the sand between my toes
Darling, I seen demons dancing across these factory floors
Floors, floors

    My InterpretationI think this is about growing old, and wanting people to remember the young you than the older or weaker you.

    "buried my mother, father, sister, brother, lover
    So why'd they treat me like a child?" Is possibly the most easy to understand example.

    The "demons dancing" I'm sure is something to do with workign in a factory but don't trust me on that one.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful.
    I'm with BudgieFace on this one, it seems to be about growing old and the way they want to be remembered, when they were younger and smiled more often.

    This verse is just amazing:
    "Remember me with a smile on my face
    replace the tears in your memory with
    two heroic arms that twisted lids from jars
    and dragged you home after drinking in the park".
