TVD's Daily Wax


I count the hours since you slipped away
I count the hours that I lie awake
I count the minutes and the seconds too
All I stole and I took from you
But Bonny don't live at home, he don't live at home
But Bonny don't live at home, he don't live at home

All my silence and my strained respect
Missed chances and the same regrets
Kiss the thief and you save the rest
All my insights from retrospect
But Bonny don't live at home, he don't live at home
But Bonny don't live at home, he don't live at home
Save your speeches, flowers are for funerals


Prefab Sprout - Bonny (Mp3)
Bow Wow Wow - Baby, Oh No (Mp3)
Felt - Ballad Of The Band (Mp3)
Julian Cope - Bandy's First Jump (Mp3)
Icicle Works - Birds Fly (Whisper to a Scream) (Mp3)

Who's Rachel Worth? Any relation to Mary...?

'Save your speeches, flowers are for funerals' is certainly one of my favourite lines in all of pop.

Paddy's 2006 acoustic version of this makes me cry.

Wow, great post. Prefab Sprout, Felt, St Julian and Bow Wow Wow
(Maclaren's finest moment in my opinion).
