about

A song about one of the happiest days of my life. I decided, as it was in Liverpool, that I'd tip my hat to Paul McCartney for the guitar part.

lyrics

by the bombed-out church on the edge of town
with the homeless sleepers where we lay down
the sun was high, our love was fresh and new

we had laid our towel on the dying grass
just to watch the cars and the buses pass
and smile up at the sky all afternoon

you whispered to me, "don't you let me down"
we kissed like there was no-one else around

i wanna be there now
i wanna take you back
to a moment when you wanted what you had

you made your promise and i made mine
in the sacred hour of a long-lost time
we swore that we would always feel the same

oh but images slip beyond our reach
like footprints lost on a distant beach
and what is gone is all that will remain

we sipped our drinks and listened to the wind
thinking only of the minutes we were in

i wanna be there now
i wanna take you back
to a moment when you wanted what you had
i wanna be there now
so i can break your heart
we can set the record straight right from the start
