Billy Bragg – St Swithin's Day lyrics


back now I,
suppose you were just stating your views What
was it all for For
the weather or the battle of agincourt And
the times that we all hoped would last Like
a train they have gone by so fast And
though we stood together At
the edge of the platform We
were not moved by them With

my own hands When
I make love to your memory It's
not the same I
miss the thunder I
miss the rain And
the fact that you don't understand Casts
a shadow over this land But
the sun still shines from behind it Thanks.

all the same But
I just can't bring myself to answer your letters It's
not your fault But
your honesty touches me like a fire The
polaroids that hold us together Will
surely fade away Like
the love that we spoke of forever On
st swithin's day
