about

I move to Fife in 2006 to work, and my GF moved to Jersey, and I was sad that there was nothing romantic about being stranded in a village and so that's what it's about!

lyrics

Each step we take
Is destined for failure
So why would you walk the plank
When you can walk the plank hand in hand

I tied a ribbon around you
Your neck, your cheeks and your hair
If this is despair, I think I can weather it well

The harbour lights
are something you don't see here
I can show you A roads and B roads
to swell the love in your heart
The day is bright
the night is glowing in red
who said that romance is dead?
Because of the landscape I think you misread.

It could be enough to listen closely to what I say
No flowers, no poets live around here.
But in my mind, you are singing
all around us people are singing
shops and bars and retail parks singing
factory outlets and tax havens singing
and all the words just come out of their buildings
in the streets the voices are ringing
and the words i love you are written in six foot letters on a motorway sign
on the bypass home
