My single of the year, 'To Be Without You' by Ryan Adams, which comes from an album he made in the wake of his wife serving him with divorce papers, contains this heartbreaker...

"So hard to be without you, lying in the bed you are so much to be without"

And this hollow feeling grows and grows and grows and grows
And you want to call your mother
And say "mother, I can never come home again
'Cause I seem to have left an important part of my brain somewhere
Somewhere in a field in Hampshire, all right"

Sorted For E's & Wizz - Pulp

Written by Candida Doyle, Jarvis Branson Cocker, Mark Andrew Webber, Nick Banks, Russell Senior, Stephen Patrick Mackey.

England my country, the home of the free,
Such miserable weather.

15 years ago, this was beginning to look like a museum piece. Funny how what goes around comes around...

Thanks to Brando and D50 for the prompt.

"It says here that the Unions will never learn
It says here that the economy is on the upturn
And it says here we should be proud
That we are free
And our free press reflects our democracy

Those braying voices on the right of the House
Are echoed down the Street of Shame
Where politics mix with bingo and tits
In a strictly money and numbers game

Where they offer you a feature
On stockings and suspenders
Next to a call for stiffer penalties for sex offenders

It says here that this year's prince is born
It says here do you ever wish
That you were better informed
And it says here that we can only stop the rot
With a large dose of Law and Order
And a touch of the short sharp shock

If this does not reflect your view you should understand
That those who own the papers also own this land
And they'd rather you believe
In Coronation Street capers
In the war of circulation, it sells newspapers
Could it be an infringement
Of the freedom of the press
To print pictures of women in states of undress

When you wake up to the fact
That your paper is Tory
Just remember, there are two sides to every story"

It Says Here - Billy Bragg

On a similar theme:

The man in the iron mask - Billy Bragg
Possibly the saddest song I’ve ever heard, and stunning to have come from the pen of one so young.


When he drops you off, I will not say
Who was that who so quickly drove away...
The things you've done and the places you've been
When I open the door for you
I will not let them in...

As long as you come back to me
I will never ask
For you I will be
The man in the iron mask

You said you love me and it broke my heart
I was always your prisoner right from the start
The nights you spend without me
This house is like a dungeon
And you only return to torture me more

You must have your reasons
I will not ask -
For you I will be
The Man in the Iron Mask

I tried to join the ping pong club
But the sign on the door said 'all full up'
I got nicked for fighting in the road
But the judge didn't even know
What's my name...........

The Clash. What's my name?

She's the Queen of The Silver Dollar,
And she rules this smoky kingdom;
And her sceptre is a wine glass,
And a bar stool is her throne.
And the jester's flock around her,
And they fight to win her favour;
And see which one, will take the Queen
of The Silver Dollar home.

Dr Hook - Queen of The Silver Dollar.

Sometimes I sleep, sometimes it's not for days.
And people I meet, always go their separate ways.
Sometimes you tell the day, by the bottle that you drink.
And times when you're alone, all you do is think.

Bon Jovi - Wanted Dead Or Alive.
