  1. Barcelona

From the recording Book of Shame

Lyrics

HIM
Back in Barcelona
When we tore up the night
Walking on the beaches
Dancing in the light

Remember when we made a pact
To back each other up
Remember when we made the wish
And drank it from a cup

But now your towel is drying
On the rocks of our disdain
I can’t believe you’ve had enough
And want to throw it in

I know I promised everything
Id take you to the stars
Drinking cocktails in the clubs
And driving fancy cars

I know I did my very best
To get you in my arms
I had to fight off all the rest
Use my special charms

I told you all those stories
designed to impress
I sketched the perfect picture
as you took off your dress

HER
don’t be daft I saw the truth
Come spinning out of you
We did

I loved the way you made that face
When you were feeling mad
I loved the way we would embrace
When I was feeling sad

But Your’e not the man I thought you were
when we were on the beach
The moon was shining in your eyes
Everything in reach
Now I'm sitting here
And I'm Crying on the phone
Its not the same as what it was
Back in Barcelone

HIM
Im sorry if you're lonely
When you're standing next to me
I’m sorry if I froze you out
When we were meant to be

BOTH
we found love in Barcelona
We found love in Rome
We found in Casablanca
But not in Leytonstone

Mia miara etc

HER
You locked your love inside a bone
And threw away the key
Buried it beneath a stone
So Far away from me

HIM
Maybe I didn’t do what I should
Maybe I couldn’t see
Blinded by the other things
That happened once to me

HER
Do you remember when they stole you
Robbed you of your soul
HIM
Do you remember when they took your heart
And stuck it on a pole

HER
Im sorry if your’e lonely
When you're standing next to me
I’m sorry if I froze you out
When we were meant to be

BOTH
we found love in Barcelona
We found love in Rome
We found in California
But not in Leytonstone

HIM
Im sorry if you're lonely
When you're standing next to me
HER
I’m sorry if I froze you out
When we were meant to be

HIM
we found love in Barcelona
HER
We found love in Rome
HIM
We found love in Yokohama
But not in Leytonstone

BOTH
Leytonstone
Leytonstone
