BBC Radio One Live in Concert (1993)

Original version

Girl in a uniform
Grey and white and crisp
Clean
How can I live in your world
Strawberry flowers and colourful hours
Lovingly I dust all the dust on your shelf
Kiss the mirror clean
Where you glance at yourself

I know
What to do
Maybe a letter I'll send
From underground
Wait to be found out
Lovingly I press out the ink on the page
Carefully I'd scent it
In stock from the meadow

It is dark
In the meadow
It is dark
In the meadow
It is dark
In the meadow

Oo-ooh
Aa-aah

I spill it all as I pour
Red wine will stain
Remember
There's none for the little girl blue
Who lives down the stairs
Who loves like the stars
But I must not forget
That I am what I am
And you must not forget
That you are who you are

It is dark
In the meadow
It is dark
In the meadow
It is dark
In the meadow
It is dark
It is dark


Live version (1993 release)

This next one's kind of appropriate seeing as we are in one
It's called In The Meadow.


Girl in a uniform
Grey and white and crisp
Clean
How can I live in your world
Strawberry flowers
Colourful hours
Lovingly I dust all the dust on your shelf
Kiss the mirror clean
Where you glance at yourself

I know
What to do
Maybe a letter I'll send
From underground
Wait to be found out
Lovingly I press out the ink on the page
Carefully I'd scent it
In stock from the meadow

It is dark
In the meadow
It is dark
In the meadow
It is dark
In the meadow

Oo-ooh
Aa-aah

I spill it all as I pour
Red wine will stain
Remember
There's none for the little girl blue
Lives down the stairs
Loves like the stars
But I must not forget
That I am what I am
And you must not forget
That you are who you are

It is dark
In the meadow
It is dark
In the meadow
It is dark
In the meadow
It is dark
Dark
Dark
It is dark it is dark it is dark
