"Expert Rites" as written by Ian Derek Belton, Paul Martin Cassidy, Jacqueline Lucy Katherine Thomas, Michael Henry Thomas and Elvis Costello....
I marvel at the wonder of it in our soulless age
Fast flow the tears upon the page
Don't be alarmed I am her friend
Will I be excused if I presume
It's more than disappointment that we share
You share the same sorry life, the families fight,
That unhappy blade you both invite
This romantic ideal has a lonely appeal
I once loved someone the way that you do
But I had to let her go
I live with my regret
Don't despair my would-be Juliet
