"The Night They Buried Sadie Clay" as written by Ben Parsons, Grenville Harrop, Jim Rhodes, Phill Anderson and Simon Aldred....
No tears were spent
The night they buried Sadie Clay
No silence swept
Across the factory floors
That old ill wind
Just sang its song
And then the world moved on

No saintly glow
Awaits the fate of Sadie Clay
They found her cold
A bottle by the bed
In younger years
A cheap embrace could
Set her heart apace
Two empty arms to grace

Why don't you dance
The kisses sworn to failure
Cross breaking waves
Into the great unsung
Until your days are done

Through lumbering limbs
She tried to pass a part in
And as they rose
Assembled in the hearse
A done for dream
Would meet the flight
And deck the threadbare night
With bones of blinding light

Why don't you dance
The kisses sworn to failure
Cross breaking waves
Into the great unsung
Until your days are done

Why don't you dance
The kisses sworn to failure
Cross breaking waves
Into the great unsung

Why don't you dance
The kisses sworn to failure
Cross breaking waves
Into the great unsung
Until your days are done
