The Concretes Song for the Songs

He has a voice you can't stop listening to
'Cause it touches like a lover
Then the strings come in and ask you not to mind
As he says farewell to Caroline

I loved a crazy man from Mexico
Because he managed to get all the questions wrong
But the daughter of a summer month in black
She got her heart broken really, really bad

This is for the songs
This is for the songs
This is for the songs
This is for the songs

There was a couple with a marching band
The wife, she really wanted out
And the horns were shining brighter than the lights
As she was pleading, leaving for the night

This is for the songs
This is for the songs
This is for the songs
This is for the songs

This is for the songs (this is for the songs)
This is for the songs (this is for the songs)
This is for the songs (this is for the songs)
This is for the songs

This is for the songs
This is for the songs
This is for the songs
The songs we had to love

This is for the songs
This is for the songs
This is for the songs
The songs we had to love

This is for the songs
The songs we had to love
This is for the songs
The songs we had to love
This is for the songs
The songs we had to love
This is for the songs
The songs we had to love
