lyrics

I was rigid with drink
On a day without a name
Gazing into the distance
As the horizon backed away
Locked up in a happiness
That left truth out in the cold
Living within the artifice
Of an indifferent world

Through the haze emerged a form
In sure and sharp relief
A woman with that shop-soiled look
Of the habitual divorcee
I saw the sculpt of her hips
And no visible tattoos
I know this isn't love
But it'll do

I like my coffee black
And my little lies white
I like to keep my potential intact
And out of sight
But she possessed all the miseries
That come with imagination
She was as open and inhospitable
As a railway station

I've never known my own mind
But I suspect it's now made up
And though the stars may not be aligned
Or our fates written in a teacup
We've been searching for affection
And it's been leaving us all these clues
And though this isn't love
It'll do

I don't want nobody but you
No, no other body will do
But believe me baby
A little bird told me
There's never been no one and only
I just want someone to hold me
How did I ever get so lonely?

Time hasn't been kind
But then neither have I
You can't put an end to hurricanes
By pulling the wings off butterflies
So come take my hand
It'll just be me and you
This isn't love
But it'll do

I don't want nobody but you
No, no other body will do
But believe me baby
A little bird told me
There's never been no one and only
I just want someone to hold me
How did I ever get so lonely?

Now the time has come for fiction
And we must play out all our parts
No rules and no restrictions
Just a couple of broken hearts
So accept my usual promises
Though you know they won't come true
We know this isn't love
But it will do.

Louis Barabbas & The Bedlam Six Manchester

Between 2006-2016 the Bedlams relentlessly peddled their peculiar brand of Dirt-Swing, capturing the imaginations of every species of listenership, winning support from the likes of Supergrass, The Mighty Boosh, Har Mar Superstar, UB40, Mark Steel, The Hell’s Angels and BBC Radio, inspiring stage invasions, dancing in the aisles and a confused mixture of exhaustion and bonhomie wherever they went ... more
