#MusicMonday – I know that you are almost in love with me….

Yes it’s Monday, yes it’s 4pm so you know what that means? Yup, it’s time for #MusicMonday when I share a track of my choosing with you under the guise of the meme created by Drew Weldon, The Tattooed Book Geek.

Today’s choice takes me back to my late teens, when the charts were flooded with Brit pop and the like. I loved this band – they kept me company as I studied for my A-Levels and my degree.and there are vague (aka hazy drunken) recollections of bouncing to their tracks at PopScene, the Thursday night student indie nightEnjoy….

Girl from Mars By Ash

Do you remember the time I knew a girl from Mars?
I don’t know if you knew that
Oh, we’d stay up late playing cards
Henri Winterman cigars
And she never told me her name
I still love you, the girl from Mars

Sitting in a dreamy daze by the water’s edge
On a cool summer night
Fireflies and the stars in the sky
Gentle glowing light
From your cigarette
The breeze blowing softly on my face
Reminds me of something else
Something that in my memory’s been misplaced
Suddenly all comes back
And as I look to the stars

I remember the time I knew a girl from Mars
I don’t know if you knew that
Oh, we’d stay up late playing cards
Henri Winterman cigars
And she never told me her name
I still love you, the girl from Mars

Surging through the darkness over the moonlight strand
Electricity in the air
Twisting all through the night on the terrace
Now that summer’s here
I know that you are almost in love with me
I can see it in your eyes
Strange light shimmering over the sea tonight
And it almost blows my mind
And as I look to the stars

I remember the time I knew a girl from Mars
I don’t know if you knew that
Oh, we’d stay up late playing cards
Henri Winterman cigars
And she never told me her name
I still love you, the girl from Mars

Today I sleep in the chair by the window
It felt as if you’d returned
I thought that you were standing over me
When I woke there was no one there
I still love you, the girl from Mars!

Do you remember the time I knew a girl from Mars?
I don’t know if you knew that
Oh, we’d stay up late playing cards
Henri Winterman cigars
And she never told me her name
Do you remember the time I knew a girl from Mars?
I don’t know if you knew that
Oh, we’d stay up late playing cards
Henri Winterman cigars

And I still dream of you
I still love you, the girl from Mars
