Light Romance / Madman Lyrics

By Blood Brothers - 1995 London Cast
Take from Blood Brothers - 1995 London Cast Recording Album


there's a girl inside the woman
who's waiting to get free
she's washed a million dishes
she's always making tea

they think she's just a mother
with nothing left inside
who swapped her dreams for drudgery
the day she was a bride
but the dreams were not forgotten
just wrapped, and packed away
in the hope that she could take them out
and dust them off one day

hello. could I talk to councillor lyons, please?

there's a girl inside the woman
and the mother she became
and half-remembered song comes to her lips again

eddie, could I talk to you? yeh, I remember.

the girl would sing the melody
but the woman stands in doubt
and wonders what the price would be
for letting the young girl out

it's just a light romance
it's nothing cruel
they had no plans
how it came
who can explain?
they just said "hello"
and foolishly they gazed
they should have gone
their separate ways

it's just the same old song
nothing cruel, nothing wrong
it's just two fools
who know the rules
but break them all
and grasp at half a chance
to play their part
in a light romance

loving on the never never,
constant as the changing weather,
never sure
who's as the door,
or the price
you're gonna have to pay

it's just a secret glance
across a room
a touch of hands
that part too soon
that same old tune
that always plays
and lets them dance as friends
then stand apart
as the music ends

loving on the never never
constant as the changing weather
never sure
who's at the door
or the price you're gonna have to pay
Mickey...

there's man gone mad in the town tonight
he's gonna shoot somebody down
there's a man gone mad. lost his mind tonight
there's a mad man, there's a mad man
there's a mad man running round and round

now you know the devils got your number
he's runnin' right beside you
he's screamin' deep inside you
ano someone said he's callin' your number

there's a mad man
there's a mad man
there's a mad man

Linda. Linda.

mam mam... what's...

he's... Mickey... Mickey's got a gun...

Mickey?... eddie?. the town hall...

what?

eddie lyons!

there's a mad man running round and round
you now the devil's got your number
you know he's right beside you
he's screamin' deep inside you
and someone said he's callin' your number
up today
today
today
