Additional Info: Vocals are by Nina Henchion. The track ‘Coast’ is in fact an entirely different track to the one finally released as lead track on the 12″. This alternative ‘Coast’ did finally get released as a B-side to ‘Angel’ and was retitled ‘Senna’.

Senna was titled as a tribute to F1 driver Ayrton Senna.

Lyrics

I used to face the sun, hoping that the warmth would fill me up
But all i felt was cold and low, it was all i’d ever known
Get back the faith i’d lost, i denied myself the need to see
I was tired and weary, run down and blue
I couldn’t see clearly, i opened my mind, then came you… my angel

There just ain’t no reason to suffer because there’s you
Miles and miles of you
Then there’s you
Miles and miles of you

All the people i thought i loved, they turned their backs on me
I can’t believe i let them walk, let them walk all over me
Respect, i never got it, playing with my mind
I’d lost my way, i couldn’t see, i was blind and confused, temporarily

And then came you
Miles and miles of you
Then there’s you
Miles and miles of you
