I remember the first time
You said you loved me
I waited all weekend
You never called me

So you find him attractive
So what if he is
You'd like some excitement
We could go to St. Kitts

So it goes
On and on
My love grows
And yours is gone

A lonely existence
Well it's just a lie
If there is a reason
I'd like to know why

Something I want you to know
I've told you this once before
Don't want you to see him no more

Once again
You've let me down
Broke my heart
And turned me round

There's a light in the darkness
It doesn't seem far
There's something the matter
That's brought us ajar

The plane goes down
Will not land
Pilot's dead
Nowhere to be found

    General CommentFucking heartbreaking. Do you have to be monumentally depressed to write such good songs?

    General CommentI absolutely love this song, it is the only one I have heard by Chris Bell and by far one of my favourite songs.
    The meaning is fairly simple, it is about jealousy in a relationship, whether it is due to the woman in it having an affair or whether it is simply based upon paranoia I have not worked out.

    General CommentYeah pretty much he's jealous and heartbroken about a girl. I love how this is the first song that starts playing in the movie Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist.

    Song MeaningChris Bell was gay and also battling drug addiction which was the cause of his depression, so I am guessing this song is not about a woman.
