Lyrics:

I was walking on that road you seem to know so well
yes, it was like you so painstakingly described
now I wasn't paying attention, but I may have heard her,
eh, You may have hurt her
it seems so long ago, and that's funny isn't it?
ha, surely you'll remember.....

Where did you go to my little Mandy?
Did your lovin' all run out
where can I find you my pretty Mandy?
Hope you find a resting place

but I decided to turn around, not really getting into it you know.
after all who wants to know, I know you don't
you haven't forgiven yourself have you?
yeah that seems unlikely and would be way too hard
you still hear her at times?
you can admit it, I know you're still running

Where would you go to my little Mandy?
A place where no one will be found
Never a trace my pretty Mandy
I hope you found your resting place

there must be fragments of memories
there must be.... something
you never even told me what went on that night
about where she was and where she went
I know you couldn't stand it, hell you couldn't even stand yourself
but what you did, what you did

Where did you go to my pretty Mandy?

Did your lovin' all run out
Never a trace my pretty Mandy
A place where no one will be found
Where can I find you my little Mandy?
I pray you find your resting place

Hi Rob.

That took me by surprise!

A big change in style from a lot of your earlier stuff, but I must say I loved the whole thing from start to finish.

It's never easy getting spoken lines to work, but I thought you did a wonderful job with this one. In fact, the entire arrangement is very clever, with a great solo and a really intimate atmosphere.

Excellent.

ROG.

I really like this. It's unique. Deep.



“you never even told me what went on that night
about where she was and where she went 
I know you couldn't stand it, hell you couldn't even stand yourself 
but what you did, what you did...”


That, is excellent writing, IMHO.


Regards,


Bob

Rob,

Original and haunting. Your vocals are as flawless as ever and the arrangement nicely restrained. A song that stays with you.
The video is your most professional to date imo (well worth watching full screen).

Rob,

Fantastic music creativity shown again.

This is most enjoyable, and so well presented.

Choice of style and instruments was just superb.

Rob, I wasn't expecting that. The spoken words work so well. I enjoyed the fill in the blanks aspect of the lyrics. Nicely done and a very enjoyable listen. Tom
