Byres Road


Author Comments

This is one of the tracks from my OC, Eleanor's album, <Greyer Albion>.

Saxophone by Claudio Jr. de Rosa

Mixed& Mastered by John Burnham



Sometimes I don't feel the same

When I'm reaching for the fame

Yesterday my hero died

And I need someone to blame

Was it me? Was it you? I don't know

Gary smokes a big cigar

Finding love in Mango bar

Now he's playing a charming man

To be Morrissey and Marr

Hope he knew hope he knew it's not him

And down the Byres Road

We were walking in the rain

You said Life ain't no easy my friend

And by the Boyd Orr I said

'You'll never be the one you'd love to be

Such a tragedy'

Yes it is indeed it is

Do you really care 'bout me?

You had chance to set me free

Hope your new Samsung's alright

When you float upon the sea

Cry boy cry till the end I won't care

And down the Byres Road

We were walking in the rain

You said Life ain't no easy my friend

And by the Boyd Orr I said

You will never be the one

You'd love to be such a tragedy

Yes it is indeed it is

And down the Argyle street

I was walking in the rain

Crossing over the river alone

And by the islay inn I said

I'll never find a place to stand upon

Without a loan

No I won't no I won't

Every dream is shattering

In my arms in your arms

So goodnight

This song blew me away upon first listen! Incredible voice! Now I need to understand the story in the lyrics.

lukemin responds:

It's a very personal story! The streets and places from the song are some famous spots in West end, Glasgow though.

This is fantastic. Holy crap, what a great voice!

Loved this very much <3

This is absolutely beautiful.
