"What Presence?!" as written by and Edwyn Stephen Collins....
It may be my imagination
And of course I'm prone to exaggeration
But in the moth eaten gloom of my shabby room I saw the strangest manifestation
One possible explanation is that it was merely a trick of the light
But that's little consolation
'Cause it's gotten so that I can't sleep at night!!

What Presence?!

Steppin' out 'neath a harvest moon, steppin' out to the strains of this self-same tune and it's screaming in my ears

    General Commenttalk about presence - this song has amazing presence. really it is super good from a musical point of view; one of the best songs from the 80's - no doubt in my mind about that. Had edwyn been seeing ghosts? All that river running dry patter at the end really works too, probably referring to the river of creativity, but it matters little. Like the way he is out in the street, unable to sleep, under the harvest moon, with the tune (or whatever) screaming in his ears. what a song!!
