Alibi
David Gray Lyrics


Stone blind alibi
I will eat the lie
Find the word
Could break any spell that binds you
Prayers like ammonites
Curl beneath the lights
How I long to
Bite every hand that feeds you more
Where'd it all go wrong
My Friday night infant
Where'd it all go wrong
My Friday night infant

All night buzz on a line
It's only blood on the rime
Wrecks my head every time
It leads me on
Where'd it all go wrong
My Friday night infant
Where'd it all go wrong
My Friday night infant

Tonight tonight
Tonight I'm running wild I'm running
Tonight I'm running wild I'm running
Tonight I'm running wild I'm running
Tonight I'm running wild I'm running
Tonight I'm running wild

Simon Haresnape

Not a slur on David , but you have to give the video some praise , it's a masterpiece

stevewebb68

Completely agree. Sublime innit?

Damien Riley

Been humming this tune in my head for a week. This is the first time I saw the video (movie). This is one of the most powerful vignette videos I've ever seen. David Gray is a genius songwriter and this filmmaker did a stellar job.

Damien Riley Your interaction with your daughter here made me well up. What a beautiful record, this. Artistes like David re-affirm one's faith in music, you know what I mean, especially if you're a working musician.

Julianna Riley

Hi daddy i was thinking of  this too!!

Gigi Marie

I've always loved this song, just from listening to it and thought it was beautiful. But after watching the video, I'm obsessed with it & can't stop watching it even though I cry every time.

Peter Richardson

Gigi Marie totally agree. the song is beautiful but the video really plucks the heartstrings

I saw David Gray in 2006..I was 40 weeks pregnant with my daughter. Sitting down the man next to me said..don’t go into Labour!! It was such an amazing concert, such an amazing singer and artist...this song is probably my favourite 🤩
My daughter Ruby was born a few days later...
