QuotesEdit

Andy: “Nearly the soppiest thing I've ever written. I just can't pen ‘love’ songs. I would have liked to record this with bar room piano, upright bass and lazy drums for that smokey late night feel. Written for MUMMER.”

Andy: “In future, don't ever let me use any French in a song lyric. This piss-poor putty de foie gras was penned for '83's Mummer. Nice melody and chords but le words. . . mon dieu!”

LyricsEdit

The bar is crowded and bright

But inside I feel empty and decaying

The smoky air full of music and worse

It's our record that is playing


Disque Bleu is all that I hear

Songs that we loved now make me cry

Disque Bleu brings only a tear

You were singing good

But you were singing your goodbyes

To me tonight


The night is warm and the pavement

Below is a river of young lovers

A radio drifting in makes me hide

With my heart beneath the covers


Disque Bleu is all that I hear

Songs that we loved now make me cry

Disque Bleu brings only a tear

You were singing good

But you were singing your good-byes

To me tonight


You gave no indication

This was happening to us

You showed no hesitation

As you quickly waved

From your seat upon the bus

That pulled away


Disque Bleu is all that I hear

Songs that we loved now make me cry

Disque Bleu brings only a tear

You were singing good

But you were singing your good-byes

To me tonight


You gave no indication

This was happening to us

You showed no hesitation

As you quickly waved

From your seat upon the bus

That pulled away
