Robert Forster and Grant McLennan - Studio 22, 27 May 1999



A wonderful recording of Robert Forster and Grant McLennan from
their 1999 tour to promote the release of Bellavista Terrace;
The Best of the Go-Betweens, taken from the ABC's Studio 22 show.
A beautiful recording of some of their finest in the acoustic tradition.
Many thanks to the most brilliant Chuck who has dragged this gem
from his archives.

I saw them play on this tour, it was a come back I didn't think I
would see at the time and of course it was only the start of a new
beginning.

And how can resist an opportunity to post some lyrics
that I've been singing a lot lately.

Love Goes On - Grant McLennan
There's a cat in my alleyway

Dreaming of birds that are blue

Sometimes girl when I'm lonely

This is how I think about you

There are times that I want you

I want you so much I could bust

I know a thing about lovers
Lovers lie down in a trust


Love goes on anyway!

Love goes on anyway!


The people next door got their problems

They got things they can't name

I know a thing about lovers

Lovers don't feel any shame

Late at night with the lights down low

The candle burns to the end
I know a thing about darkness

Darkness ain't my friend


Love goes on anyway!

Love goes on anyway!


I'm gonna make you happy

I'm gonna spin you round

I'm gonna cut your strings


I put my foot flat down on the floor

I took it as far as I could

I took it down there to Sheridan Street

by the dark wood

Late at night when I want you

I lock you in my room

I know a thing about darkness

I know a thing about lovers
I know a thing about lovers

Lovers want the moon

Love goes on anyway!
Love goes on anyway!
