Lady on a Horse (near Banbury) Strum's Songs - index
HOME

Party talk was drifting round the room,
As I held the stage by the door,
And I talked about the girl I had…
How I couldn't ask for more.

Party talk was just a pleasant hum,
As a background to my words,
But I didn't see the hidden smiles,
At the funny tale they heard.

Party Talk - said she was leaving
- said she was leaving

Party talk became a whispered hush
As I faltered in mid-stride.
And I turned around to hold you close,
But my girl was not in sight.

Party talk turned into silent stares,
Party talk turned into silent stares,
You had left me standing like a fool,
After all the things I'd said

Party Talk - said she was leaving
- said she was leaving

Party talk said you were leaving me,
Said you'd found somebody new.
Seems that everybody knew but me.
Oh, I wish I'd listened to…

Party Talk - said she was leaving
- said she was leaving
