​Under The London Ravine

This song is by The Spangle Maker and appears on the EP The Romantic Dysthymia (2007).


First part

You wandered into my world
And you carved a space in my head.
Your ghost is living there still
But it's been years since you left.
I've kept track of the numbers
Mine fall each space in between
I've been stonewalling your lighthouse
Under the London ravine.

I've been a sucker for a very clever boy.
I've been a sucker for a brilliant copycat.

Miles of ivory canvas
Hammered into a map.
The stupid things little girls do
To somehow get their selves back
I didn't get myself back.
I didn't get myself back.
I didn't get myself back.
I didn't get myself.
Did you forget yourself?
You became a compulsion
All excessive and vile.
I didn't stay here forever
But I stuck around for a while

I've been a sucker for a very clever boy.
I've been a sucker for an expert copycat.

Second part/reprise after "Melancholia at the Discothèque"

You wandered into my world
And carved a space in my head.
I followed painting behind you
And you kept making a mess.
I been repainting behind you
And you're still making a mess.
You're still making a mess.
Don't you ever forget
No don't you ever forget.

I've been a sucker for a very clever boy.
I've been a sucker for a lovely copycat.

You wandered into my world
And carved a space in my head.
Your ghost is living there still
But it's been years since you left.
It's been years since you left
And you're still making a mess.
It's been years since you left
And you're still making a mess.
Don't you ever forget.
And don't you ever come back.
