  • The platitudes they all dissolved
    They got too deep, got too involved
    The platitudes just interludes
    To break the trust with me and you

    Oh what a Shangri-la
    Oh what a shell we are
    Oh what a mess we've made
    What happened to those days
    When everything seemed possible
    With no-one to tell you no

    Where did the feeling go?
    Where did it all go wrong?
    Born to be a communist
    But then the marriage failed
    As did the partnership

    The platitudes they all dissolved
    They got too deep, got too involved
    The platitudes just interludes
    To break the trust with me and you

    I fell back in love with love
    I know that it might sound odd
    The liberal left destroyed
    Every bit of our youth
    Left with the barest of bones
    Leaving us all with holes

    Where did it all go wrong?
    Where did the feeling go?
    Why colonise the moon
    When every different kind
    Of desperation exists?

    In every single home
    Where did the feeling go?
    Where did the feeling go?
    Where did it all go wrong? Writer/s: JAMES BRADFIELD, NICHOLAS JONES, SEAN MOORE
