There's a stain on my notebook Where your coffee cup was And there's ash in the pages Now I've got myself lost I was writing to tell you That my feelings tonight Are a stain on my notebook That rings your goodbye With the way that you left me I can hardly contain The hurt and the anger And the joy of the pain Now knowing I am single They'll be fire in my eyes And a stain on my notebook For a new love tonight From the lips without passion To the lips with a kiss There's nothing of your love That I'll ever miss The stain on my notebook Remain all that's left Of the memory of late nights And coffee in bed Now she's gone And I'm back on the beat A stain on my notebook Says nothing to me Now she's gone And I'm out with a friend With lips full of passion And coffee in bed

Anthony from New York, NyWell reading some of what's written in the "songfacts" section I think Glenn Tilbrook is being a tad bit harsh on himself. It's a good song that's sung perfectly for the type of song that it is. Its easy to see this is a song about a rocky & difficult relationship that had ended & the singer expresses the pain & remorse of said relationship. Most of us have been there sad to say. Again this song is well written & perfectly sung & paced IMO anyway. Nothing to be ashamed of where you have to come out & say that you "cant stand to hear it" any longer but if that's how the man feels about it, I have to respect it, even though I feel differently than he does about it. Good song.
The seemingly inoffensive song, "Deep In The Heart Of Texas," was banned by the BBC when it was released in 1942. They deemed the song too catchy, with authorities in wartime Britain concerned that factory workers would be distracted if they heard it during a shift.
