Sometimes the Big Fish
(Dunsford / Harewood / Jones)

Sometimes the big fish are so close in shore
I could scoop them with my hand
But then I never want to stretch that far
And so I’ m restless on dry land.
If we could talk it over.

Sometimes a cloud burst, I can’t remember
How it was before the rain
But then the tides recede and I’m left with
All this wreckage to explain.
If we could talk it over.

If you could talk to me
We’d make no sense of what I say
I talk in calendars
And live an endless day to day
If you could talk to me
We’d make no sense of what I say
I talk in years gone by
They get shorter everyday
Sometimes the big fish.

Sometimes it’s easy, I hear voices
“He lives on the second floor”.
And then the footsteps and the shadows
In the light beneath my door.
If we could talk it over.

If you could talk to me
We’d make no sense of what I say
I talk in calendars
And live an endless day to day
If you could talk to me
We’d make no sense of what I say
I talk in years gone by
They get shorter everyday

If we could talk it over
We’d chase away my routine
The cruel cycle of the days
Would all give way
To just a whisper
If we could talk it over

If you could talk to me
We’d make no sense of what I say
I talk in calendars
And live an endless day to day
If you could talk to me
We’d make no sense of what I say
I talk in years gone by
They get shorter everyday
Sometimes the big fish.

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
