"Strawberry Blonde" as written by and Charlotte Cooper William Morgan....
You're the matador and I'm the bull
You're the brass key hole I fit into
You're the wind and I'm the weathervane
You're the strawberry blonde and I'm the grey

You're the light and I am the firefly
You're the star and I am the blackened sky

Tell me, yeah, sing your song
For my lonely soul
Tell me you sing your song
For my lonely soul

If we find the light and turn it into ourselves
They will hunt us down like animals
In the morning clouds will cover you, oh well
In the afternoon the sun is yours

Find the lion deep inside your heart

Tell me, yeah, sing your song
For my lonely soul
Tell me you sing your song
For my lonely soul

Stroke by stroke
You fill my empty soul with colour

Tell me, yeah, sing your song
For my lonely soul
Tell me you sing your song
For my lonely soul

    General CommentI saw somewhere that it was about his new girlfriend, but then I read that he said the following in an article:

    “That song is also about me feeling guilty over what I think I put Charlotte through in our relationship, and also realising that for a long time I wouldn’t be anything without her.”

    Here is the whole article: mirror.co.uk/tv-entertainment/film/film-reviews/2008/06/12/the-subways-return-after-with-new-album-after-billy-lunn-s-op-and-split-89520-20604942/

    Sometimes things have duel meanings...who knows...

    I saw them play a live version of this on "Live From Abbey Road", on the Sundance Channel. It's even better than the version on the album.

    General CommentThat article also says "it's about how useless he felt in relation to this other person"..that's his current girlfriend. Newspapers and magazines love romanticism and sensationalism, so they make it seem to do with Charlotte. He wrote the song and got the tattoo on his belly when he was with his new girlfriend. The line "Stroke by stroke, you fill my empty soul with colour" is because his new girlfriend's an artist.

    General CommentI have to agree with noddy86!
    I went to see Billy play an acoustic set for Club Blub in Bishops Stortford, and before he played Strawberry Blonde he said, "This is about and for my girlfriend Rowena Alice Lewis..She's really hot" lol!!
    It's an amazing song..in fact the whole album is amazing!
