"Granite Years" as written by John Jones and Ian Telfer....
Night has drawn the curtain
covered up their eyes
the angels will not hear you
your spirit starts to rise
there's music from the bar
drunken laughter down the hall
is it pain or is it pleasure
you are bearing through the wall?

`Cruising for a bruising'
tattooed above the heart
it'd take the strength of Mary
to bold the boys apart
they flicker in their footsteps
a voltage overload
dazzling the dancers like they're
fixing to explode
you find `em later lying in be road

Granite years
Harbour lights city nights and bitter tears
(And you don't care where you're going)
Say that I was foolish
Say that I was blind
Never say that I got left behind

Love you for a lifetime, but
I haven't time to try
if I loved you for an hour
it wouldn't be a lie
say that I was foolish
say that I was blind
a seller bought a buyer
and the buyer didn't mind
anything you ask I'll pay in kind

The wind is off the sea tonight
it whistles through his soul
the solitary copper
hopes that God is on patrol
a single star is shining
across the evening sky
sending us a message
they are waving us goodbye
they are waving us a long long goodbye
thousands of lightyears... goodbye
