D  Em7  D  Asus4

Another day, another year
When the lights go out it’s all so clear
That what we have is what we need
And what we want we’re told to believe

The finger prints on a wine glass show
So much clearer in the softer glow
Of candlelight where shadows fall
Than electric bulbs that blind us all.

Bm  Asus4  D
I’m writing a list of needs but I won’t get far
A            Gadd9
Because there’s nothing more important now
Em7            Dmaj
Than the strings on this guitar
And hearing the wheels turning in my car
I’ll be headed back to Liverpool
Before the end of March
And meeting all my friends in our favourite bar.

So when they say that this country’s lost
The English Rose buried in the frost
Of printed words and TV crews
Remember they don’t speak for you.

See you and I are as much a part
Of making up this ancient heart
And clear words from a digital box
Don’t resonate like echoes that are shouted from a rooftop.
