The Paris Match

YouTube video posted by RedGloves

Here's to beautiful music and memories of old friends. The Paris Match by The Style Council (from the album Cafe Bleu with guest vocals by Tracey Thorn). Try and get "the match that started my fire" out of your mind. It's hauntingly impossible.

Empty hours
Spent combing the street
In daytime showers
They've become my beat;
As I walk from cafe to bar
I wish I knew where you are;
Because you've clouded my mind
And now I'm all out of time
Empty skies say try to forget
Better advice is to have no regrets;
As I tread the boulevard floor
Will I see once more;
Because you've clouded my mind
'Till then I'm biding my time

I'm only sad in a natural way
And I enjoy sometimes feeling this way
The gift you gave is desire
The match that started my fire

Empty nights with nothing to do
I sit and think, every thought is for you;
I get so restless and bored
So I go out once more;
I hate to feel so confined
I feel like I'm wasting my time
