Big blue screen displaying your name
All that candy talk you gave to me
There’s coffee and cakes and civic mugs waiting
But where are you tonight, sweet Marie?
Under the pyramids you were as nice as pie
Said we’d have our pictures taken, you, she and I
The Frisbee throwers are chatting but I’m standing here alone
And now you tell your lackey boy to hang up the phone
Top five idol, queen of the range
Oh young lady, why did you change?
I believed the sweet voice that spoke to me was sound
When you want votes, I won’t be around
Is life always like Big Brother?
Cheers for one side, tears for the other
I tossed your picture behind me tonight
To Southampton harbour lights
Big blue screen, all that local fame
Now faded flowers lie on the balcony
Three months down the line and you never were coming
Where are you tonight, sweet Marie?
If you don’t want to be my hometown heroine
Don’t want to be anyone’s shooting star
I know someone who cares for her supporters
I’ll go see her and she’ll know what you are
She may not have your gold
She may be from another town
Hers is a magic that will never run cold
She will never let me down
