Lyrics

Stars leave the morning
Sleep clouds my view
Don’t let them come round here
And call for you
I didn’t notice
It’s a crime too few
I didn’t know it’s
It’s a crime to feel

And I tried to sleep alone
But I couldn’t do it
You could be sitting next to me
And I wouldn’t know it
If I told you you were wrong
I don’t remember saying
I don’t remember saying
I don’t remember saying

I’ll be a shadow
In the cedar room
And leave just a memory
Alone with you
I didn’t see that
It’s a call too soon
I couldn’t see that
It’s a call to you

And I tried to sleep alone
But I couldn’t do it
You could be sitting next to me
And I wouldn’t know it
If I told you you were wrong
I don’t remember saying
I don’t remember saying
I don’t remember saying

Interview

For the 20th anniversary of the Cedar EP I spoke to Andy & band manager Dave Rofe about the Cedar EP and what life was like in Doves back in 1998. Click here to access both interviews.
