The Lilac Time
I love this song, can't wait to listen to the Album. Below a quote from Stephen Duffy off the website. Link above.
"I wrote this in 2015 as we were rehearsing for the Port Eliot Festival. The No Sad Songs album had just come out and this was the first new song I’d written since. The Constitution Hill is in Birmingham, where I was born. I’ve just looked on the map and it seems to have got smaller, but at least it still exists unlike many roads and buildings I remember. Perhaps I was thinking of Livery Street. But that wouldn’t have been the same song at all. The last verse is a distillation of Ingrid Bergman’s final speech in Roberto Rossellini’s Europa 51. “I’d rather lose myself with them than be saved alone.” It’s the second song on the tenth Lilac Time album Return To Us. Hopefully, before too long, you’ll get to hear the rest."
From 1987 - The Lilac Time
