Before Adele, England gave us Alison Moyet. And I give you Yaz (Yazoo) for day 22. There were a few Yaz songs I could have chosen but this one always gives me the feels. (And I remember the day I bought it on 45 like it was yesterday. I heard it on the radio and ran to the indie record store by school the next day. I was 14. I’ve been collecting love sucks songs for a long time.)
Perhaps if I held you I could win again,
I could take your hands we’d talk and maybe then –
That look in your eyes I always recognise,
Would tell me everything is gonna be fine,
You’re gonna be mine
for a long time…
For the times we’ve had I don’t want to be – a page in your diary babe,
For the good, the bad I don’t want to see – a page in your diary babe,
For the happy, the sad – I don’t want to be another page in your diary.
