"Devil in the Details" as written by and Stephen Lironi Gary Kemp....
I've got a feeling that the horse and the rider are the same
And if you whistle they'll come running
But don't expect too much
Or you're gonna be disappointed

'Cause the devil's in the details
And he wants you to know he was framed
For kicking over the chair of a ghost
Who never cared to shake his chains

Oh, what a lovely island
We've made for ourselves

Rene, your country is covered in weeds
And another one grows every time you speak
I'm warning your beast to be
We are not as wild as we like to think

And how can I be what she wants me to be
When I can't even rest while I sleep

Oh, what a lovely island
We've made for ourselves

I was beaten and I was tamed
Like a lam who arranged
For a fox to take her sisters
For supper in exchange
For the details on the devil
And the ghost of the planes

A look was exchanged
Clothing rearranged
You spoke of marriage
I spoke of the sea

We glanced around the room uneasily
Spoke of a flower and how she tamed you
What of the cuts and the blisters she gave you

Took an airplane to unravel the true nature of this beast
But your heart is like the prairie and you're married to the sea

Oh, what a lovely island
We've made for ourselves
