"Stand Above Me" as written by and Andrew/kershaw Mc Cluskey....
We always stick together
Like we're something made of glue
And justify the passion
Saying one is more than two

But if you don't believe the words
They're surely coming true
There's one thing that's so obvious
But it's something you won't do

Because you stand above me
But I know you don't
You say you love me
But I know you won't

We always say we're happy
When you know it's never true
But I was just so frightened
Of the things you'd say and do

But if you don't believe the words
They're surely coming true
It's starting to be obvious
That it's something you won't do

Because you stand above me
But I know you don't
You say you love me
But I know you won't

But if you don't believe the words
They're surely coming true
There's one thing that's so obvious
But it's something you won't do

Because you stand above me
But I know you don't
You say you love me
But I know you won't

    General CommentI love this song. Andy McCluskey hates it apparently, and sure enough it's cheesy but it's good fun. I see this song as a dig against 'couply' couples who always cling to one another and make out they're soulmates when really their 'love' is very superficial. Often in these kind of relationships one person is particularly dominant, trying to make the other conform to this illusion of true love, and this song is a fantastic retort against that kind of superficiality.
