All Across The Sands lyrics

Bones of an impressive romance
Scattered all across the sands
A secret safe with all the world
Too vain to seem so capable

Can you hear it calling
Do you feel warmer
As the hired hand’s exposed

How can a pretty painted shell
Send them all packing off to hell
A freight train laughs and rattles by
You kissed the girls and made them die

Can you hear it calling
Do you feel warmer
As the hired hand’s exposed

And i’ll never come here again
And we will never come here again
And we will never play here again
Again

Can you hear it calling
Do you feel warmer
As the hired hand’s exposed

After her call
After her call
After her call
And she calls

  1. This song is about an early gig they played at the bluebird club in barrow in furness when they were booed off they got the train up to barrow around 1987 which arrived via morcombe bay which is the all across the sands

  2. Supposedly about a serial killer who was irresistible to the women he killed; so much so, that those enamoured with him whom he didn’t kill, refused to inform on him.

    Never been able to find out exactly who this was supposed to be; so he may have a literary origin, or be the entirely the figment of the Roses’ imaginations.

  3. I was in the Bluebird club, Barrow in Furness on 14th August 1986 and they didn’t get boo’d off at all. They were one of the best bands to play at the Indie nights. They supported the Shamen that night and got paid £50 or £10 per song. I felt like I’d been transported to the Cavern club in ‘62 to watch the Beatles. They just had it. Nailed it to the floor.
    No one danced (Barrow is a tough audience) and Ian asked fairly is anyone going to dance. Some wag shouted No and they walked off the stage. The hired hand might be the sound man as there was an altercation outside with his van. Next day I told my neighbour Andy Turner (AiM) what a great band I’d seen and many years later he engineered a track for Ian. As a drummer I was gutted they walked off, they were a magnificent band, just the audience failed to see it.
    My friend Mike who was the promoter still has the poster for it. Howard.
