"John Cope" as written by Mark S. Hollis and Timothy Alan Friese-greene....
Say it again
Heart of stone
Red on your face
So alone
Say it again
And I'll know it's you
God only knows
Why do lies about this girl bother you?
Time is waiting to explain, why refuse?
It's you
Say it again
Heart of sand
Tears on your face
'Nothing stands'
God only knows
I've noticed you
Say it again
Why do lies about this girl bother you?
Time is waiting to explain, why refuse?
It's you
Say it again
I know it's you
God only knows
Why do lies about this girl bother you?
Time is
waiting to explain, why refuse?
It's you
Talk in rhymes about the world watching you
It's you
So unwise about the girl
It's you
Why do lies about the girl bother you?
It's you
Tired of waiting to explain

    General Commentthese are definitely not the lyrics to 'John Cope'

    The 'John Cope' lyrics are -

    Weapons at my feet
    Some kind of living
    Weapons at my feet
    Some kind of living

    Beggar sits to plead
    Some kind of giving
    Beggar sits to plead
    Some kind of giving

    General CommentJohn Cope... wasn't he a 17th-century soldier? Great song though, one of the greatest Talk Talk tracks, methinks...
