Read introduction

‘At a Long Lost Party’ was a lyric I penned in response to listening to Prefab Sprout’s 1985 album ‘Steve McQueen’ at some point during the evening of the 3rd of June 2017, although the melody I wrote it to has escaped me. While the preponderance of the song was drafted on the 3rd, minor modifications took place on the 4th, almost certainly between 7 and 8.30 am, and then again on the 6th; while the 16th witnessed the removal of an entire verse to produce the definitive version.

At a Long Lost Party

I yearned for another,
Who wasn’t you,
But she wasn’t there,
Unlike you,
At a long lost party
In old Cambridge town.

Did I fall
Just a little for you,
While longing for another,
Who wasn’t you,
At a long lost party
In old Cambridge town.
