Fairground Attraction – Moon On The Rain lyrics

Jazz in a basement bar, the moon's on the rain
Drunk too much, spent too much, penniless again
Oh sweetheart where are you tonight
I remember when we used to walk by the Thames
The lights on the embankment like jewels on chains
I'll never forget what you said at the start
You said "I'll put a string of lights
Around your heart"

I've got your photograph, the one that you signed
Tucked in my pocket, all tattered by time
Oh sweetheart who's with you tonight
Are you there at the roundabouts, down in the park
Where you sneak through the railings
When it's Locked after dark
Is she learning the song you taught me at the start
The one the bells and the banjos played
On our hearts

Now the bars are all empty, everybody's gone home
Perhaps I'll walk down the embankment alone
Oh sweetheart I'm glad that we met
And that there's jazz in the basement bars
And jewels on chains
'Cause I've drunk too much
And spent too much
But there's moon on the rain
