The Blue Flashing Light
by Travis

Saturday evening
Saturday evening at a quarter to five
I would see him arrive at the door
Pushed you aside as he staggered inside

Spilling alcohol over the floor
A storm is abrewin' and it's sure to fall soon
As I look at you from the shore
So

You better hold on
'Cause it's Saturday night
And your friends are all out
And you feel like shit

'Cause they never call you
No they never call you
No they never call
Never call

Never bloody ever
Call me a name and I'll hit you again
You're a slut, you're a bitch, you're a whore
Talked to your daddy in that tone of voice

There's a belt hanging over the door
So you run to your room
And you hide in your room
Thinking how you could settle the score

But
Saturday night at a quarter to six
And your friends are all out
And you're live in the sticks

Still they never call you
No they never call you
No they never call
Never call

Never bloody ever call
Blue flashing light last Saturday night
Brought the neighbours all out on the street
They watched as the firemen carried you out

And they stared at each other's feet
Now everyone sees and yet nobody says
How we're all just afraid of the heat
But

It's Saturday night
And I'm lying alone in the bed that I made
Disconnected the phone
Still they never call you

No they never call you
No they never call
Never call
Never bloody ever call

Never bloody ever
Never
Never do
Never do

+Natalie Williamson I remember when this album got released, and I stuck it on when I got home from a mates, I was shattered, I was falling asleep when I thought that the album had finished.. And then this came on, yes it made me jump out of my socks :P but what a great tune :)

Christopher Johnson

+Natalie Williamson Agree, totally.

+Natalie Williamson It's a song about the often "hidden" nature of domestic violence, it makes sense to hide the song when you think about...

Do any of you actually live in Scotland? It's the song of a generation. The song about domestic abuse, that nobody wants to talk about.

Mr PMikC

Doesn’t matter where you live, domestic abuse is prevalent in every society the world over. It’s got fuck all to do with Scotland. It’s just a song. Incidentally I’m Scottish but live in Hong Kong. I had to escape that terrible country of mine otherwise the domestic abuse would have killed me, NOT! I was in Spain one year and there was an almighty commotion the floor underneath me at 2am. A woman screaming. I called the police. Next day the English woman who presumably got battered by her husband was at dinner with a black eye and bruises. It’s not country specific so don’t talk shite you apparently know nothing about.

Barry Horne

It's Saturday morning an I'm planning a domestic already.

Glaswegian born 1994. this shit never got fixed till around 2003 with police slamming harder on domestic's.
