I was tired of my fella, we'd been together too long Like a worn-out recording, of a favorite song So while he lay there sleeping, I read the paper in bed And in the personals column, there was this letter I read "If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain If you're not into yoga, if you have half-a-brain If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape I'm the love that you've looked for, write to me, and escape" I didn't think about my fella, I know that sounds kind of mean But me and my old fella, had fallen into the same old dull routine So I wrote to the paper, took out a personal ad And though I'm nobody's poet, I thought it wasn't half-bad "Yes, I like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain I'm not much into health food, I am into champagne I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon, and cut through all this red tape At a bar called O'Malley's, where we'll plan our escape" So I waited with high hopes, then he walked in the place I knew her smile in an instant, I knew the curve of her face It was my own lovely fella, and she said, "Oh, it's you" And we laughed for a moment, and I said, "I never knew" "That you liked Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain And the feel of the ocean, and the taste of champagne If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape You're the lady that I've looked for, come with me, and escape" "If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain And the feel of the ocean, and the taste of champagne If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape You're the love that I've looked for, come with me, and escape"

Pale, pubescent beasts roam through the streets And coffee-shops Their prey gather in herds in stiff knee-length skirts and white ankle-socks But while they search for a mate my type hibernate In bedrooms above Composing their songs of love Young, uniform minds in uniform lines And uniform ties Run round with trousers on fire and signs of desire they cannot disguise While I try to find words as light as the birds That circle above To put in my songs of love Fate doesn't hang on a wrong or right choice Fortune depends on the tone of your voice So sing while you have time Let the song shine down from above And fill you with songs of love Fate doesn't hang on a wrong or right choice Fortune depends on the tone of your voice So let's sing while we still can While the song hangs high up above Wonderful songs of love Beautiful songs of love

Oh you shouldn't have kissed me and got me so excited And when you asked me out I really was delighted So we went to a pub in Belsize Park And we cheered on England as the sky grew dark Oh you shouldn't have kissed me cause you started a fire But then I found out that you're a serial liar You lied about your status You lied about your life You never mentioned your three children And the fact you have a wife Now it's England 2 Colombia 0 And I know just how those Colombians feel If you hadn't passed out while I was talking to your friend It could have really ended badly cause you very nearly had me If he hadn't taken pity on my heart full of desire I might never have found out you're a serial liar You lied about your status You lied about your life You forgot you have three children You forgot you have a wife Now it's England 2 Colombia 0 And I know just how those Colombians feel It is not in my nature to ever pick the winning team Sometimes I think I'm happy then I remember it's a dream Now it isn't in my nature to ever pick a winner I always pick a bastard who would have me for his dinner I can never possess the object of my desire Cause he's bound to turn out to be a serial liar OK I didn't mention my kids, I thought I'd wait a bit But I am free and single and he's a lying git Cause he lied about his status He lied about his life He forgot he had three children He forgot he had a wife And it's England 2 Colombia 0 I know just how those Colombians feel So I got into a taxi and sobbed all the way home Called my friend up in Sao Paulo and cried down the phone I played some tragic music and I lay down to die But later I woke and I hadn't stopped crying You should never have kissed me, you tasted of deceit Your perfume was Adultery but I'm not a piece of meat So I'll be the one that you couldn't acquire I found out in time you're a serial liar You lied about your status You lied about your life And I pity your three children And I pity your poor wife Now you can go to Hell I'm going to Brazil Still it's England 2 Colombia 0

O come all ye faithful Here is our cause: All dreams are one dream, All wars civil wars. Lovers have never found Agony strange; We who hate change survive Only through change. ּ Those who are sure of love Do not complain. For sure of love is sure Love comes again.

about

Love Comes Again was recorded in transition – literally. I started it as a 39-year-old Londoner aged 39 and finished it as a 40-year-old Bristolian.

I wanted to do a stock take. I've spent the past 20 years singing live - with fleeting recording collaborations which rarely captured the range of material I like to perform.

I needed to record some of that music with the band I love.

And so you'll find a little-known Simon and Garfunkel track alongside a Mahalia Jackson spiritual. Kirsty MacColl and Divine Comedy are nestled in alongside Cab Calloway, with some originals to keep things fresh.

It's an eclectic mix and, in making it, I had to consider things like "Do I try and get a record company interested (if they still exist) to do a wider release?", "Do I make it more marketable for radio?"

I realised quite quickly that I really don't make music or shows for money. Sometimes they make money, quite often they break even and sometimes they lose money.

Without anyone listening, I would definitely stop. So thank you for all your support over the years, coming to gigs, talking to us afterwards and buying our CDs.

If you want to keep listening, please let me know that you've enjoyed this album. If we've never met before, I hope this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship...
