They say lovers take trains at night to avoid the hurt they feel at first light they ride by the seat of their pants in a carriage, they wrecked with romance Don't want another fight Don't want another night, solo They say lovers take trains at night to linger longer with their love at first sight their hearts race out of control in a furnace, they stoke with coal Don't want another fight Don't want another night, solo They say lovers take trains at night making sure they are on the right track too afraid of their past mistakes with the daylight there’s no looking back Don't want another fight Don't want another night, solo

I’ve been walking down Turrett Grove The walls are high & the gates are closed I see you peering out from your window On Turrett Grove, Turrett Grove I’ve been walking down Turrett Grove See the smoke from wood burning stoves Bikes go by, you wonder where they go On Turrett Grove, Turrett Grove I’ve been walking down Turrett Grove I’m blind to the sights from your window Know nothing of the prison you’re in On Turrett Grove, Turrett Grove I won’t hear you calling out to me I ignore you, & continue my journey Your rich ivory tower is no concern to me On Turrett Grove, Turrett Grove

Francine’s coat, is laid Over her chair, she has Gone without it again Francine’s coat, is laid Over her chair, she has Gone without it again She’s in the road In the rain Oblivious to it all Francine’s cold, she don’t know It’ll be the death of her Francine’s coat, is laid Over her chair, she has Gone without it again Francine’s coat She don’t know It’ll be the death of her She’s alright in bad weather When the sun ain’t out & she’s holding on In her eyes are stormy skies Francine’s coat, is laid Over his lair, she has Gone without it again Francine’s coat, she don’t know It’ll be the death of her Francine’s cold, She don’t know, He would be the death of her……

This is the cautionary tale of Alphonse Du Gard and his search for love. He's been down in the dumps and lonely in life for a very long time He had a series of dates that didn't go well “Well”? They didn't show up. Parks and hills hold such misery Parks and Hills hold such, misery So today he met Valerie Parks up on Parliament Hill For an ice skating date he had bought a ring So she’d say yes to him! He was down on one knee Ring in his hand, praying for the ice to break And oh how it did She slipped and fell She knocked in to him He sliced in to her She let out a yell Her fingers spun over the ice It was a blood curdling scene With blood curdling screams From everyone. Poor old Alphonse Dugard remains a single man in custody..

She said she heard every jealous word You said about her She’s getting into our private lives Filling our minds - with her stupid lies Twist those pretty words Twist them like it hurts We’re going away for good You blackmail as you clean your tail Show the way you went up the wall Now I don’t care at all I don’t care all What’s the word they say? What’s the word they say? She said she heard every murderous word I said about her I got in through her private gates And Filled her mind with my stupid lies Twist those pretty words? Twist them like it hurts? You’re going away for good I blackmail as you clean my trail Wont show the way you I went up the wall Now I don’t care at all I don’t care all What’s the word they say? What’s the word they say? She said she heard every jealous word You said about her Getting into our private lives Filling our minds with her stupid lies Twist those pretty words Twist them like it hurts We’re going away for good Now I don’t care at all I don’t care all What’s the word they say? What’s the word they say? Lalallalaaa laa Lalalalaaa la laala laaa

Never guessed you weren’t like the rest When you moved in Never thought I’d never move every time You danced alone, under lamplight Never knew your name, so I called you secret Like you were the last time around I’m looking down on you Down on you Down on you Someone left a light on, shining all night I knew it wasn’t you, you weren’t home Someone new walked you home last time Someone who wasn’t good enough for you/good enough for you I’m looking down on you Down on you Down on you We don’t talk We don’t touch We don’t know We don’t walk We don’t dance We don’t know each other
