From the recording Scratches and Dust

Lyrics

There are history books lined up on the shelf
Volume after volume I bought them myself
With pages of vinyl and jackets of cellophane
 
Telling stories of love and stories of peace
Stories that made history the day of release
Recording the pleasure, recording the pain
 
There was revolution as the world went ‘round
Tables turned and made a magic sound
And business was booming at the lost and found
 
Scratches and dust, scratches and dust
Etched in the grooves like a face you can trust
Love lies deep…in scratches and dust
Scratches and dust, scratches and dust
On the surface of the plastic like elastic rust
Love lies deep…in scratches and dust
 
We were worlds apart, separated by an ocean wide
We were one heart, beating to the sound of the drum
 
Oh, the cuts go deep and the tracks go far
They can take you far away from wherever you are
Back to when sergeants liked to play in a band
 
Where rubber souls walked through a hard day’s night
To search for Madonna and The Inner Light
For faces and sounds that always felt so right
 
Scratches and dust, scratches and dust
Etched in the grooves like a face you can trust
Love lies deep…in scratches and dust
Scratches and dust, scratches and dust
On the surface of the plastic like elastic rust
Love lies deep…in scratches and dust
Love lies deep…in scratches and dust
All you need is love and love lies deep…in scratches and dust
