If anyone has the lyrics to Richard Thompson's Strange Affair and can send them to me I would deeply appreciate it.

I especially need the last verse.

Thanks,

david falcone

Subject: Lyr Add: STRANGE AFFAIR (Richard Thompson)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 05 Feb 08 - 10:24 PM

Copied from Richard Thompson's web site:

STRANGE AFFAIR
Richard Thompson

This is a strange affair
The time has come to travel but the road is filled with fear
This is a strange affair
My youth has all been wasted and I'm bent and grey with years
And all my companions are taken away
And who will provide for me against my dying day
I took my own provision, but it fooled me and wasted away

Oh where are my companions?
My mother, father, lover, friend, and enemy
Where are my companions?
They're prisoners of death now, and taken far from me
And where are the dreams I dreamed in the days of my youth
They took me to illusion when they promised me the truth
And what do sleepers need to make them listen,
Why do they need more proof?
This is a strange, this is a strange affair

Won't you give me an answer?
Why is your heart so hard towards the one who loves you best?
When the man with the answer
Has wakened you, and warned you, and called you to the test
Wake up from your sleep that builds like clouds upon your eyes
And win back the life you had that's now a dream of lies
Turn your back on yourself and if you follow,
You'll win the lover's prize
This is a strange, this is a strange affair

[Appears on "First Light" (1978), "Doom and Gloom from the Tomb, V1" (1985), "Disc B, Watching the Dark" (1993), "Watching the Dark" (1993)]

This has nothing to do with your current thread, but I came across your name earlier searching for Peter Ponsil lyrics.... I did a little searching and lo and behold I found this under the following link, under "Information for Children" at the bottom of the page. Please download and listen to Peter Ponsil and His Tonsil!! A fabulous hit from my childhood and I guess yours too!
