Are there any lyrics? Anywhere? I was gutted that they weren't in the booklet

Couple of outstanding tracks (This Day Forever & There Is No They) but Marcus O'Higgins becomes Mumbler O'Higgins in places, or maybe he's singing in a foreign language, or even backwards wink though he has a fantastic voice and sings almost as well as I do bemused confused2

I know what you mean, Craig - it's very hard to make out the lyrics in places. As far as I know, Billy has never published the lyrics anywhere - but I've submitted a request to Billy's web guy (bless you, Alex!) for Billy to consider. Maybe try emailing Billy to ask about them via our Email Ultravox page, or via his own site..?

Yeah but there's always some smart arse that brings out that photo from 1973 of you dressed like Woody from the Bay City Rollers!

No wonder I feel damaged!!

That may not be a bad thing actually, depending on your point of view...

Hey Craig, you'll never guess who emailed the lyric over? Marcus himself - hey Marcus, great to have you on here! laugh

Here's his reply:

-----
Hi Cerise,

Was hoping you might pass on the following lyric for This Day Forever to Craig/angrymoose...?

Many thanks,

X
Marcus/Mumbler.


This Day Forever…

All torn up and tied
You’re leaving lies
You want what you can’t resist
You’ve got a myth in mind
Concealing your heart
Why try to lock a sunbeam in the dark?
You light a spark
Shine like the sun
But then you run away…

When will I ever learn to let you go?
Before the bridges burn I want you to know.

Hope you find your Prince one day
Find him soon
And that he makes your sweet heart sing

In time when you look behind for evidence (fair-weather friend)
Will you remember then…?

Hey Cerise & Marcus smile

Thanks for this. Can you believe that cheeky young angrymoose upstart said "Mumbler"? arnie

I am suitably embarrassed.
