Wrote this one after a trip to see 'The Cabinet of Curiosities' ...'trip' being the operative word !

lyrics

The Show Tune

Best friend, lover
Tell me what you thought about the show
There’s still time before you go
Talk to me, talk to me
Magic, sensation
The woman in the goldfish bowl
An illusion of a headless girl
All performed beautifully

The cabinet of curiosity
Was such a mystery
How did they do that lover?
No don’t tell me, I don’t need to know
Don’t want to spoil the wonder
Of that freaky show…

Kiss me, lover
What was your best then?
Why don’t you guess then...
Was it the amazing flower girl
Smiling as the petals unfurled…
All pirouettes and twirls?

The Dancing Belles out there on the stage
A teasing flash of flesh, so risqué back then
And did you know we missed the escapology?
There was such a lot to see
You couldn’t do it all in a day
Not one perfect day, lover…

Time now, you should dress now
But wasn’t that our special day?
And the thing for me that will remain
When all these memories fade
Is the smile on your face...

You should go now
He’ll be waiting
He’ll be waiting

Growing up in a shabby sea-side town, absorbing old films and half-digested biographies, various faltering careers (bed salesman, MP's assistant), are the backdrop to his music. Nowadays Glyn can been seen performing live with longstanding musical partner Phil Senior on bass and Lizz Beahan on violin as 'The Beholden'. ... more
