"This Blue World" as written by Guy Edward John Garvey, Craig Lee Potter, Mark Potter, Peter James Turner and Richard Barry Jupp....
This blue world and it's countless sisters
And all that came before that day
Our atoms straining to align
Was the universe in rehearsal for us?

When all the world is sucking on its sleeve
You'll hear an urgent morse in the gentle rain
And if you plot your course on the windowpane
You'll see the coldest star in the arms of the oldest tree
And you'll know to come to me

In the back of a broken car
When the blizzard blossom flew
Reading aloud with our fingers
What we both already knew

And the blizzard blossom flew
And the blizzard blossom flew

When all the world is sucking on its sleeve
You'll hear an urgent morse in the gentle rain
And if you plot your course on the windowpane
You'll see the coldest star in the arms of the oldest tree
And you'll know to come to me

A sober midnight wish flies over the rooves and down through the years
Hope that you and yours are sleeping
Safe and warm in size formation
While three chambers of my heart beat true and strong with love for another
The fourth, the fourth is yours forever

    Song MeaningThis song is about the singer feeling like everything in life so far has been leading up to the day he meets the girl in question. However the end of the song is written by Guy Garvey about his split with long time girlfriend Emma Jane Unsworth.

    Garvey says; "It's almost saying, everything from the beginning of time was leading up to the day we met. So that's very romantic, but something I'm fond of doing, when I'm offering a huge romantic gesture, is to point out the realities as well."

    After the break-up though he admitted that the song that he thought "was about this mythical mix of ex-girlfriends, it's really about her, it's this prophetic thing. I added some lyrics at the end, about imagining her going on and having a family without me, which is tough to swallow."

    General CommentHaving gone through a break up where it was impossible to see my ex partners children anymore the last few lines are incredibly resonant.
    No matter how happy I am with anyone in the future I will always wonder about them and love them in a way. Summed up so beautifully
