Hmmm


BAD NEWS
(from Maura O'Connell)

Well, I opened your last letter
Thinking things could only get better
But it was bad news at the best of times
Tap water dressed as tears
I know that trick through all these years
But it was bad news at the best of times

Some things just cannot be expressed
And some bad things we do for the best
It would have been bad news at the best of times
It would have been bad news at the best of times
Had my tongue in my cheek when you were mind
It would have been bad news at the best of times whooo

My eyes are tired and itching
Got me walking round the kitchen
It would have been bad news at the best of times
Started coughing once too often
I can't stop till I don't think of you
It would have been bad news at the best of times

What price for tomorrow's bride
Widowed when her daydream died?
It would have been bad news at the best of times
Bad news best of times
I used to wake up laughing, huh, when you were mine
It would have been bad news at the best of times

Baby baby, believe in me just one more time
I've never asked you to before
I'm as guilty as the day I was born
Of begging you, pleading you
Loving you and needing you

When things go this wrong
Next time I'd be so strong
It would have been bad news at the best of times
Driving backwards in a hearse
Thinking things can't get any worse
It would have been bad news at the best of times

The camera never lies for sure, baby that's for sure
But you're a sight for these eyes so sore
It would have been bad news at the best of times
It would have been bad news at the best of times
It's stronger than memories when you were mine

It would have been bad news at the best of times

It would have been bad news at the best of times
I used to wake up laughing
It would have been bad news at the best of times
When you were mine, baby
Oooh oooh
Had my tongue in my cheek
It would have been bad news at the best of times
Sing it

Oooh oooh yeah
Bad news
Bad news
