One Last Clue

from by Sam Carter

/
  • Compact Disc (CD)

    'This is a bittersweet folk-electric concept album, influenced by his time spent in London, and the songs range from the slow and personal From the South Bank to Soho, which features exquisite viola work from Sam Sweeney, to the remarkable Drop the Bomb, which starts as a gentle ballad backed by the piano of Neil Cowley (of Adele fame) and ends as a furious electric guitar workout.’ **** The Guardian

    '‘…like one of his heroes Richard Thompson, Carter has the ability to enthral with just one climactic chord when he moves effortlessly into rock guitar mode and the jagged contrast with his softer side makes it all the more effective' fRoots

lyrics

Well I chew my pencil and I wrack my brains
Before I curse the clue for thirteen down
I’ve drawn a blank again
So I send a hopeful glance towards a friend

Say the word, say the word, when you think of it, spit it out

Now it’s got your back up and it’s got me riled
And now it tries our patience and for what?
This damn four letter word
The one that we both know needs to be heard

Say the word, say the word, when you think of it, spit it out
Say the word, say the word I can see it there in your mouth

I think you see things just the way I do, oh yes you do
And you feel things just the way I do, oh yes you do
And if our filthy minds think alike
Then help me solve this one last clue

It’s a case of love at first frustration
And now nine across has got us stumped
I just can’t pin it down
You’ve got something about you when you frown

Say the word, say the word, when you think of it, spit it out
Say the word, say the word I can see it there in your mouth

I think you see things just the way I do, oh yes you do
And you feel things just the way I do, oh yes you do
And if our filthy minds think alike
Then help me solve this one
I think you see things just the way I do, oh yes you do
And you feel things just the way I do, oh yes you do
And if our filthy minds think alike
Then help me solve this one last clue
