Where Were You
Flash and the Pan Lyrics

Thanks for the dinner, thanks for the wine
It's been a hell of an evening and I've had a good time
And now that it's over, well let's get it straight
Don't think that I'm stupid, that I took the bait
I know you're in trouble and you're on the mat
So before you get busy, well here's where it's at

Where were you when I needed you
Where were you at the fall
Where were you when the light went out
You were nowhere at all

Danny's a junkie and Susie's on bail
And Jimmy's still there in that Mexican jail
And while you've been sitting with your face in your food
Lucy's out there in that Norwegian wood
You think you've got troubles, well what do you know
And as for the favour you know where to go


You were the hero, you were the best
I was the fool that got left with the mess
And while you were living it up on the coast
Yours truly was stuck here with a room full of ghosts
So hear what I tell you, you miserable clown
We're all gonna help you, on your way down

(chorus x2)

Ok, its time to spit it out, i was in the carpark with Jenny from the fruit shop in the back of the Sandman. I don't regret it, it was just an unfortunate thing , sorry :(

A bit reminiscent of "Love Is In The Air" which of course was written by the same guys.
