about

On the day the UK chose its song for Eurovision and amidst a backdrop of European uncertainty, we were invited on the James Piekos breakfast show on BBC Radio Humberside to write a song TO Europe with help from the listeners of the show. This is the result. Enjoy!

LYRICS

If it's raining in Spain don't speak ill of my name
Don't say it out loud like a curse
If its raining in Spain don't bring trouble my way
Even though it is what I deserve

Why should I stay, do you want me to go?
My heart says yes but my mind says no
Burning down bridges, walls will collide
A chill rushes over the north sea divide

Saying goodbye won't be easy my friend
All things good and bad they must come to an end
This project of peace was not built to last
Let's consign the fear and the hate to the past

If it's raining in Spain don't speak ill of my name
Don't say it out loud like a curse
If its raining in Spain don't bring trouble my way
Even though it is what I deserve

There's a break in this town 'tween the old and the young
The silence is louder than words
The borders they're torn, confusion the order
No deal screams out to be heard

There's a special place in hell for those taking over
The free way that we like to live
There is no trace of doubt in my mind
We May or we May not forgive

If it's raining in Spain don't speak ill of my name
Don't say it out loud like a curse
If its raining in Spain don't bring trouble my way
Even though it is what I deserve

The folks they are restless from North to the South
They feel it deep down in their bones
Cards on the table you cant tell the truth
With fake hands that are made of stone

On the back stop we stand, undecided we sunder
We were brought up with Europe in tow
So long farewell, we're lost and we're leaving
Release me and please let me go

If it's raining in Spain don't speak ill of my name
Don't say it out loud like a curse
If its raining in Spain don't bring trouble my way
Even though it is what I deserve

It's still raining in Spain don't speak ill of my name
Don't say it out loud like a curse
It's still raining in Spain don't bring trouble my way
Even though it is what I deserve
