  • Life has been unfaithful
    And it all promised so so much
    I am a relic
    I am just a petrified cry
    Wheeled out once a year, a cenotaph souvenir
    The applause nails down my silence

    La Tristesse Durera
    Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
    La Tristesse Durera
    Scream to a sigh, to a sigh

    I see liberals
    I am just a fashion accessory
    People send postcards
    And they all hope I'm feeling well
    I retreat into self-pity, it's so easy
    Where they patronise my misery

    La Tristesse Durera
    Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
    La Tristesse Durera
    Scream to a sigh, to a sigh

    I sold my medal
    It paid a bill
    It sells at market stalls
    Parades Milan catwalks
    The sadness will never go
    Will never go away
    Baby it's here to stay

    La Tristesse Durera
    Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
    La Tristesse Durera
    Scream to a sigh, to a sigh Writer/s: JAMES BRADFIELD, NICHOLAS JONES, RICHARD EDWARDS, SEAN MOORE
