and a bang on the ear lyrics – waterboys

lindsay was my first love
she was in my cl*ss
i would have loved to take her out
but i was too shy to ask
the fullness of my feeling
was never made clear
but i send her my love
and a bang on the ear

nora was my girl
when i first was in a group
i can still see her to this day
stirring chicken soup
now she’s living in australia
working for an auctioneer
but i send her my love
and a bang on the ear

deborah broke my heart
and i the willing fool
i fell for her one summer
on the road to liverpool
i thought it was forever
but it was over within the year (oh dear)
but i send her my love
and a bang on the ear

the home i made with bella
became a house of pain
we weathered it together
bound by a ball and chain
it started up in fife
it ended up in tears
but i send her my love
and a bang on the ear

krista was a rover
from canada she hailed
we crossed swords in san francisco
we both lived to tell the tale
i don’t know now where she is
oh, but if i had her here
i’d give her my love
and a bang on the ear

so my woman of the hearth fire
harbour of my soul
i watch you lightly sleeping
i sense the dream that does unfold . like gold
you to me are treasure
you to me are dear
so i’ll give you my love
and a bang on the ear
