lyrics

The rapture of youth, bell-bottom blues and Biba shoes
Singing ‘It never entered my mind’ on the District Line
You’re laughing now but at the time you were simply sublime
And I still hope to convince you some day

Providence lies in the promise of night, in the red evening sky
Reflected in a bloodshot eye, no shoulder to cry on
Just an ordinary guy without a crutch to rely on
And I still hope to convince you some day

I still hope to convince you some day, it’s getting harder every day
You’re drifting out of sight, no longer can I reach you

You bought me a suit and I felt a fool, unbeknown to you
I never did look good in blue and the jacket was loose
It never suited me it’s true but I wore it lightly for you
Cause I still hope to convince you some day

I still hope to convince you, ok I’ll always let you have your way
But in the hope that some day your way will be my way

The words no longer spring to mind so while we still have time
Let me reiterate to you in the last line or two
How I still hope to convince you some day
I still hope to convince you some day
