The long nights without you

If music drew you back to me

You'd be here with me right now

I play our favourite songs all day

I've worn the needle out


The phonograph had played its last

'Til a workshop fixed the bass

It cost me all the dough I had

But it was worth it just in case


The tone arm slid across the disc

The motor rumbled on

The belt had stretched beyond its grip

The speaker cone had gone


Once the pride of EMI

The joy of all our dreams

We'd kiss and cuddle all night long

To Bobby Vee and Jerry Lee


The good news is it's OK now

I've just played Troy Shondell

This Time (we're really breaking up)

Perhaps I'd best play something else


The bad news is you've not come back

But our records have their use

They help me get through lonely days

And the long nights without you
