Slow To Fade

lyrics by Jeremy Kidd, music by Hal Lewis



You've been around so long
Living a lie
I've been doing nothing
Now its time to try
Time to try
Oh time to try
I know the reefs surrounding
Your ivory coast
I take my flask of courage
And drink a final toast
I'll drink a toast to you
A final toast

(Four bar break)

They say that time's a great healer
And I've tried to forget
But time won't erase you
You're slow to fade
Slow to fade
Oh slow to fade

The dreams you dream are the dreams of tomorrow
The tears you cry are the tears of today
The dreams you dream are the dreams of tomorrow
The tears you cry are the tears of today
And you say

(Guitar break)

You've been around so long
Living a lie
I've been doing nothing
Now its time to try
They say that time's a great healer
And I've tried to forget
But time won't erase you
You're slow to fade
Its time to try - time to try
Slow to fade

Slow to Fade quotes...

Christ this was difficult to record! We ended up with three tempos and took hours working it through. I was dead chuffed, though, because when we came to getting the drum track down, I did it in one take!   Matt

It was a nightmare recording the bass line. I must've tried every bass in Hull, just couldn't get the sound. Then I couldn't play it right. Roy was waving a conductors baton at me, going "No, no, you can do it better than that Lou".   Lou
