Slight Return
The Bluetones Lyrics


Where did you go
When things went wrong for you
When the knives came out for you?
Where did you go?

All you needed was a friend
You just have to ask and then

You don't have to have the solution
You've got to understand the problem
And don't go hoping for a miracle
All this will fade away
So I'm coming home

What did you learn
Locked away all on your own
Chance and your head all blown
What did you learn
It was unfortunate
You missed you chance to find out that

You don't have to have the solution
You've got to understand the problem
And don't go hoping for a miracle
All this will fade away
So I'm coming home

Where did you go ?
When things went wrong for you
When the knives came out for you
Where did you go?
All you needed was a friend
You just have to ask and then

You don't have to have the solution
You've got to understand the problem
And don't go hoping for a miracle
All this will fade away
So I'm coming home , I'm coming home

What did you learn?
Locked away all on your own
Chance and your head all blown
What did you learn ?
It was unfortunate
You missed your chance to find out that

You don't have to have the solution
You've got to understand the problem
And don't go hoping for a miracle
All this will fade away
So I'm coming home, I'm coming home

You don't have to have the solution
You've got to understand the problem
And don't go hoping for a miracle
All this will fade away
So I'm coming home, I'm coming home, I'm coming home
But just for a short while...

It's mad how you couldn't get away from this song in 1996, it got played a lot on the radio, and MTV and VH-1 both played the video regularly too... A quarter of a century later, you never hear it anymore unless you play it by choice... Loved this song then, and still do now

This defines 1996 for me, love it 🥰

I have to say I only learnt of this song this morning on the radio on the way to work. Possibly heard it somewhere else before. Tho I was only a kid in ‘96 so I can’t relate there. Glad I know it now. Catchy tune

Before Britpop got co-opted. The early 90's scene gave us some of the best recorded music since the 60's.

@David Reynolds Travis are a quality band mate...end of!

David Reynolds

@Gary Payne Mate, I don’t give a f&ck what you think. I have ears. Just because the NME was full of spotty, sneery no mates who couldn’t be in a band themselves decided they were crap doesn’t mean they were crap.

@David Reynolds lost all credibility when claiming Travis were a decent band, the Coldplay of the 90's

David Reynolds

@George Armour There was a distinct change in the mid/late 90s. Think the whole thing had run it’s course. Oasis were producing sh1te, Blur had gone off to become a totally different animal, and Noel Gallagher was at 10 Downing Street for a party. Basically, almost as soon as the phrase was coined, the people who created the movement (unintentionally) had left the stage.
There were some great bands around like Travis (unfairly castigated IMO) and Stereophonics (first album was a classic) Catatonia etc. But there was a lot of shitty bands signed to cash in on “Britpop” and the magic was gone out of it. Camden went from being the centre of the universe (for indie kids of the time) to a place to sing along to Spice Girls songs while hopped up on vodka and Red Bull.
Maybe you experienced it different but that’s the way it felt to me.
