You and Me (Skaith & MacNeill) I’ve heard the lies that you said before Heard the lies that you cried before All the times love has died before and it was over. All the days that have played before us All the hands that have strayed upon us All the times you’ve lied for us All the times you tried It’s you and it’s me And it’s now or never It’s you and it’s me and I’ll do whatever And I will trust you, I will trust you So never again It’s you and it’s me And that’s fine All the words that have gone before All the hurt that was wrong before All the misheard sighs in our time And to all the love that was lost before us All the dogs that have lain before us And the calm that became us, there’s no harm. All the lies, all the cries all the times you tried before.
Thieves’ Imagination (Skaith) At the roadblock I just smiled and said ‘Sorry but I don’t have my papers’. He gave a shrug and a sigh and he said ‘Well, how can we sort this out?’ ‘I got a little refresco,’ I said ‘I’ll make a small consideration’, He said ‘I think my sergeant Is going to want a little more than that.’ Oh nothing’s what it seems It’s like we are in the theatre He’s got his policeman’s costume on But a thieves’, he’s got a thieves’ imagination. ‘I’m a cousin to the king, Very pleased to meet you.’ A minister of state We can help each other out. You want to sell some planes? I can be persuaded But you are going to have to help me Sort out this bottom line. Oh nothing’s what it seems It’s like we are in the theatre In their sober suits and ties But a thieves’, he’s got a thieves’ imagination. Reaching arms around the world They’re greasing palms of the undeserved On the bottom rung, you have to survive But those at the top They never know when to stop Those at the top They never feel rich enough. Oh nothing’s what it seems It’s like we are in the theatre In their sober suits and ties, and uniforms And their thieves’ imagination.

Latin Quarter UK

Latin Quarter first burst onto the scene with their singles "Radio Africa" and "New Millionaires" – songs that stayed for months in the German single charts in the 80s. The band split up in 1998. In 2011 five of the original musicians got together again. Unlike other bands they didn’t rely on previous fame but released two albums with new songs - 'Ocean Head' and 'Tilt'. ... more
