"61 Minutes Of Pleading" as written by Simon Friend, Charles Kenton Heather, Mark Chadwick, Jonathan Sevink, Jeremy Cunningham and Philip Merriam Johnstone....
As the blood flowed, Lorraine knew
There'd be nobody coming, nobody's coming
As the blood flowed, Lorraine knew
There'd be nobody coming

The call came in
Lorraine shot down
Her husband pulled the trigger
And then he blew his brains out

At the other end
The police took a call
They didn't believe
That he was dead at all

So they wouldn't help her
And she knew

It had been twenty years
Since they fell in love
He's brought a lot of pain
But now he's brought a lot of blood

And he's taken more
Than his share

"We can't lose a life"
The police chief said
"There's an armed man in there
Who'd be better off dead"
As Lorraine bled from the legs

As the blood flowed, Lorraine knew
There'd be nobody coming, nobody's coming
As the blood flowed, Lorraine knew
That there'd be nobody coming

Speak to me now
But all she could say was
I don't want to die like this
So they said they're on their way

? heard
That she was Lorraine
So they didn't let her die with even her name
As she left us all in pain

As the blood flowed, Lorraine knew
There'd be nobody coming, nobody's coming
As the blood flowed, Lorraine knew
That there'd be nobody coming

    General CommentThere's a full news story, including phone transcript, available here: guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/…

    It's a pretty chilling song, even if you don't know the full story behind it, though.
