"Whatever Happened" as written by and Richard On Dave Bassett....
Tell me I'm dreaming
My feet are stone and my light is dim
Chasing this demon on his way down

But whatever happened?
Whatever happened?

Spent the night out on a hill
And watched the world sleep sound and still
And over mountains darkness spilled
Washed me over

Whatever happened?
Whatever happened?

Its been a long way back
From the edge of that
Saw the world from a hill
And right back where it started
And it still feels right
Like the very first time
Saw the world like a kid
Yesterday is over,
Lets write another story tonight!

City gates of rusted iron
Can't contain the light inside
So I spot this devil at the county line,
And went no further

And whatever happened?
Whatever happened?

Its been a long way back
From the edge of that
Saw the world from a hill
And right back where it started
And it still feels right
Like the very first time
Saw the world like a kid
Yesterday is over,
Lets write another story tonight!

After all the time is gone,
I'll have moved on

Its been a long way back
From the edge of that
When the world was a kid
And right back where it started
And it still feels right
Like the very first night
Saw the world like a kid,
Lets write another story tonight!

I saw the world from a hill,
Lets write another story tonight!

I saw the world like a kid,
Lets write another story,
Write another story tonight!

    General CommentI can't believe no-one has commented on this song. Let's see, for starters it's amazing. The song means so much to me. My favorites lines are,
    City gates of rusted iron
    Cant contain the light inside
    So i stopped this devil at the county line
    And went no further,

    He's saying that the darkness that took over his life can't contain the joy of life forever and eventually he broke free of it by stopping the "devil".
