One Step From Heaven


J D Cully

for Sarah Swidenbank

In reverie now
I know between us there was something electric
All our time together
For love or the Eurovision Song Contest
And a kiss on a cold Essex night
Told us and the DJs that this was right
But as we waved to the last train leaving
We never mentioned it

All my hobbies today
Can never replace you completely
I've stopped watching Neighbours
'Cause I miss so many people who've left now
And your carpets of claret and brown
Cast a shadow all over the town
But as the bridesmaids all do the Twist
I'll wish you both well

Love was all around
During Romania versus Switzerland
But the moment soon passed
And they don't sell blackcurrant and liquorice drink any more
Now you are a co-habitee
Do you still cherish the sweet memory
Or is the love we had forever sleeping
With the canaries?
