Artist's Notes

Simon Wright lyrics:

It's a song about finding love just when you're at your lowest ebb.


Lyrics

Cupid Don't Care

 

I buttoned my collar tight to my throat

Pulled my tie like a noose, familiar old rope

Heaved on a jacket two sizes too small

Squeezed my heart tighter, soul curled in a ball.

 

By the church a new scar had been cut in the soil

The sky was as dark as the mood that I wore

But the sun found a way to reach right through

When I lifted my eyes they alighted on you.

 

It's hard to write a love song when death's in the air

My head in a bad place but then you were there

It's hard to write a love song from a pit of despair

It hasn't all been roses but Cupid don't care

 

Apple blossom fell from tear-soaked leaves

I heard the ghost of a voice or maybe just the breeze

Then, in the hall, the noise jumbled, but I was not there

Between the past and the present, transfixed in your stare

 

It's hard to write love songs when death's in the air

My head in a bad place but then you were there

It's hard to write love songs from a pit of despair

It's not all been roses but Cupid don't care

 

I was an orphan in an orchard and the fruit was bruised

You were a damsel in a dress, last chances largely used

Yet Cupid still found us on this darkest of days

I was shot to pieces and then he took aim

 

It's hard to write a love song when death's in the air

My head in a bad place but then you were there

It's hard to write a love song from a pit of despair

It hasn't all been roses but Cupid don't care

 

It's hard to write a love song when death's in the air

My head in a bad place but then you were there

It's hard to write a love song from a pit of despair

It hasn't all been roses but Cupid don't care
