a lonely man in bedsit land sits and ponders his limited options...

lyrics

In the quiet of a lonely evening,
Take some comfort from the fact,
No one's going to get hurt tonight.
It's just you and the dying fire.
But something leads you to wonder,
If you should be somewhere else.
Is someone wishing you were there with them,
Or laughing at your expense?

This night holds nothing for you,
It's as empty as your soul.

Maybe you'll shave tomorrow,
To look nice for yourself.
You know a good thing when you see one,
As long as it's lit up well.
And you dream that things were different,
But you don't like it when they change.
There's a method to your sadness,
And your need to take revenge.

This night holds nothing for you,
It's as empty as your soul.
For you there are no shooting stars,
There's only black holes.

The minutes drift so slowly,
You count them in cigarettes.
You grab a cold one from the fridge,
And try to reach the point where you can forget.
All the thoughts that stopped you sleeping,
Those mysteries and premonitions.
But the fear that haunts you the most,
Is that there's truth in your visions
And they say,

This night holds nothing for you,
It's as empty as your soul.
For you there are no shooting stars,
No, there's only deep black holes.

You're a psychopath in an armchair,
Sitting raging at the stagnant air,
That you breath in 24 hours a day,
And wishing it would go away.
But it never goes away,
Never really goes away.
The sun may come,
And chase it away,
But it always comes back another day.
It always comes back another day.
It always comes back at the end of the day.

about

Rumour Den County Antrim, UK

Formed in the late 1990's by Al Gilmore & Steve Simms, Rumour Den did a lot in a short space of time including a self- financed single 'Under A Cloud' and album 'Melancholics Anonymous' - both to critical acclaim. However, problems outside music meant the band had to split up for several years. But now Gilmore & Simms have put a new line-up together and are determined to make up for lost time ... more
