Bonny
Prefab Sprout Lyrics


I spend the days with my vanity

I'm lost in heaven and I'm lost to earth
Didn't give you minutes not even moments
All my life in a tower of foil
Shaded feelings, don't believe you

When you were there before my eyes
No one planned it took it for granted

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, Bonny don't live at home
Words don't hold you, broken soldiers

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, Bonny don't live at home
Words don't hold you, broken soldiers

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's not coming home, Bonny don't live at home
Save your speeches, flowers are for funerals

a serious candidate for the best song ever written

Dystopian Future Movies

Agreed!!!

Dan Abrahams

I'd say this and Pyjamarama (Roxy Music) are perfect pop songs...

Richard Desmond

possibly my favourite song of all time...perfection...the emotion is so visceral. This album is their Magnum Opus!!!

HarryFlowers56

A classic no doubt but the greatest song ever penned?
No.
That belongs to The Beatles,David Bowie or even Simon and Garfunkel?😱

Fabio Valente

Ron Grant

Maybe not THE greatest pop album ever made, but certainly one of them, and one that largely slid under the radar. This album brings back so many feelings.

Pascal Torres

Sure !!!!
