Without The Fanfare

Mick Hanly
I know it's the same old song I'm singing But this time these words are just for you That's the only thing that's new I know that I've sung about a million Borrowed lines and phrases from a few This one's till as good as new Without the fanfare I love you By day I move words around like flowers I deliver by the afternoon "Cause the piper calls the tune Today I made full use of the hours I explored the smallest avenue And that feeling still came through Without the fanfare I love you Sure I've lost my way sometimes But I've had to pay Sometimes I've gone completely overboard Moved a million phrases round, tried to make them leave the ground Still the only line that's soared Bidding all the rest Adieu Sounding still as good as new Without the fanfare I love you Hello, do I still have your attention? I forgot to mention thanks again from the captain and the crew And so without the sweet perfume or roses I hope you can still believe it's true Stripped of all that much ado Without the fanfare I love you Without the fanfare I love you
