"Lonesome Swan" as written by and James Allan....
Lonesome swan
Tell me what is wrong?
So you feel that we've all moved on
And you're feeling so alone?

Kids can be cruel
You know that's fair to say
But remember when the kids once said
You were queen of the waves upon the ocean bed

You were the dream boat pedalo
But now that's all in the past
But let me tell you that this loneliness will pass
And be a part of the past also

So for now dust down your weary sails
For tomorrow is a bright new day
With someone waiting in the wings
To pedal with you upon the ocean waves

    General CommentNot a huge stand out on the album (Considering how amazing the other songs are) but still a really pretty song. Its about a lonely girl (maybe a kid?) and he's saying just keep looking on the brightside.

    General CommentYeah it is a really pretty song. I've been to see Glasvegas a good few times now and I always seem to end up being left to go alone and when Lonesome Swan strikes up all I can do is smile really. Such an apt song, it's about being left but being able to pick yourself up and look beyond the present. Lovely.

    My OpinionThis song always makes me think of elementary school days, with the mean kids, and that everything can be cured by the ocean. that's just my thoughts on the song. :)

    General CommentI think this is about a young person who was maybe a beautiful child but lonely at school? Beauty can be a curse?

    Basically it says, ok you were alone as a child because of your beauty, but now that you have grown, you will find someone worthy of you and who appreciates you for everything that you are.
