Crocodile Tears

music and lyrics by Jeremy Kidd

On postcards of buildings fly the flags of many nations which you send me,
Falsehoods on four winds from unsung and faraway places,
Distance breeds lies and those lies crystallise what I feel,
You say you still love me but from here I get the idea it's a lie.

Crocodile tears at the station, ripping at my heart,
Crocodile tears tearing me apart - end of another fresh start.

You left me with nothing but the taste of gum on my tongue,
From letters to places with beaches, blue oceans and sun,
I said that I love you, God knows I tried!
You say you still love me, but you're always saying "Goodbye".

Crocodile tears at the airport, ripping at my heart,
Crocodile tears tearing me apart - end of another fresh start.

You said you must leave but you wouldn't say why you were going,
I looked into your eyes but my heart had no way of knowing,
I said that I love you, God knows I tried!
You say you still loved me, but you're always saying "Goodbye".

Crocodile tears at the station, ripping at my heart,
Crocodile tears tearing me apart - oh!
Crocodile tears at the airport, ripping at my heart,
Crocodile tears tearing me apart - end of another fresh start,
Of another fresh start,
Of another fresh start,
Another fresh start,
Another fresh start.

Crocodile Tears quotes...

In Crocodile Tears lead guitarist Hallam Lewis plays the fleet-fingered sabateur behind Jeremy Kidd's dry lyric.   Adam Sweeting, Melody Maker, 24/11/84

I bought a red Hofner Verithin for 60 quid off a bloke on Bricknell Ave and wrote this the same day. It was my first song. I remember overhearing Steve Marshall playing it on the piano once when he didn't know I was there. It sounded great.   Jeremy

We worked ages on getting the right beat for this and then it just clicked. When we first used to play it, it was a rock and roll thrash, but ended up as a ballad! "End of another fresh start." Poignant or what?   Matt

Someone left the studio door open while Hal was recording the acoustic guitar part and you could hear the telly on the track. We liked it and kept it in.   Lou
