"Postcards of Scarborough" as written by and Michael Chapman....
Two postcards of Scarborough
just to keep in my mind to hide away
up there and help me remind myself
of time past and time passing

I went down to the harbour
just to catch a bite to eat
Boats along the quay
and seagulls round my feet remind me
of when we were here together

And the food was so tasteless
The wine was so stale
I looked in the mirror
And my face was so pale
So different from
when we were here together

And I took a walk up to Paradise
just like we did before
But it doesn't seem like Paradise
to me anymore
Not since we were there together

And I sleep in the same room
And the walls are so white
But there's nothing to warm me
in the cool of the night
Not like when we were here together

And the food was so tasteless
The wine was so stale
I looked in the mirror
And my face was so pale
So different from
when we were here together

But I've got postcards of Scarborough
just to keep in my mind to hide away
up there and help me remind myself
of time past and time passing
