John Martyn
It's always a loop - love.
Echoing in the chambers,
Tattooed across the night,
As drunken fools lurch
Into front gardens,
Disturbing foxes and dustbins,
For some unrequited romancing
And a bit of dodging father's shoes.

You can re-record the back beat,
But you can never quite
Remaster the soul.
