When Big Joan Sets Up 29/4/10 – Loudon Proud

Into this pitch darkness, we’re hurled
Where there’s not a glimmer of light
It’s not the end of the world
It’s just the middle of the night

And the blackest of flags is unfurled
In all this absence of light
It’s not the end of the world, good people
Merely, the middle of the night

The middle of the night
That’s what this is
If death is the real test
This is just a quiz

When grey creeps through your window
It will be daylight
The end of this darkness
Is almost in sight

    oooo, handbags! You and Patrick should have an arm-wrestle to sort out your musical differences..! ;-)

    It’s chilling how well you can read me Patrick! No handbags necesary – Just trying make the point that many people whose musical taste I respect seem to be Rufus fans but don’t know Loudon’s stuff – which as you can see by the above is pretty bloody fine
