A song about memories

All vocals and instruments: Brian Booth. Recorded at Ranscombe Studios, Rochester, UK by Jim Riley. Remastered using the IAC service, October 2006
Beautiful Diva
Words and music: Brian Booth, copyright 2005


Beautiful diva
Serial leaver
Thanks for the time that you stayed
It was fun while it lasted,
Now filed under ‘past’, it’s
A tape that’s often pulled out and played

And sometimes I’ll fast forward
And sometimes I’ll rewind
And sometimes I'll press ‘pause’ and
You glitter in my mind

No-one could keep you
Awake or asleep, you
Were always dreaming of what comes next
Then - just a note
That you casually wrote
You might has well just have sent a text

And sometimes I re-read it
Lines fade along each fold
Burned hard into my memory
It’s all of you I can hold

I’m chained yet I’m free
Where we both used to be
This space got big, doesn’t start or end
I write endless e-mails
Sagas and small tales
Then click your address - but I can’t hit ‘send’

Yes, this is all that’s left me
All my unspoken words
But when I try to speak them
A fatal exception occurs

Beautiful diva
Serial leaver
Who are you with? - are you happy there?
Remember me fondly
Remember the bond we
Once had - may still do - I can’t help but care...

Hard to pick which of Brian's songs I wanted on here but this one won by an inch - love the line Beautiful Diva, Serial Leaver.


Gli amici di Dario
Brian is a reference in songwriting. I really love the way he writes, especially his inspired verses.
