The Wedding Present -
"My Favourite Dress"

[ from the album "George Best" (1987) ]

Lyrics

Sometimes these words just don't have to be said
I know how you both feel, the heart can rule the head
Jealousy is an essential part of love
The hurting here below and the emptiness above (ohh)

There's always something left behind
There's always something left behind
Never mind
Oh never mind

The tender caresses that bring out the man
I can't still be drunk at five, oh I guess I surely can
Slowly your beauty is eaten away
By the scent of someone else in the blanket where we lay (ohh)

There's always something left behind
There's always something left behind
Maybe next time

Uneaten meals
A lonely star
A welcome ride in a neighbour's car
A long walk home
The pouring rain
I fell asleep when you never came
Some rare delight in Manchester town
It took six hours before you let me down
To see it all in a drunken kiss
A stranger's hand on my favourite dress (ohh)

That was my favourite dress you know
That was my favourite dress (ohh)
