The Ring From Your Hand - Lyrics

When that builder cups his hand to other builders ear
It doesn't happen often, maybe once or twice a year
That compliment from you my precious dear
Would creep up unexpectedly then disappear
First time we caught each other's eye was at the bottle bank
Dropping off three times the amount
Our partners knew we drank
When did that bottle of plonk
Turn in to walking plank
When did that Chenin blanc turn to blank
We took the shine out the sun
Blew the clouds out the sky
Took the wind and the rain and the frost
Just inches below us, the river runs dry
And the love that once took us across
The kiss we exchanged
That built us a bridge
Has sunk to its knees in the sand
The petals and sticks we dropped from the ridge
Have gone with the ring from your hand
Where's the passion when we're both stood in our socks
When did marvin's 'get it on' get put back in the box
When did being daring begin to shock
When did wearing mini skirts turn into wearing frocks
Who's the brains in this relationship
When we're both in red kagoules
How could life be quite so dull
With so many golden rules
Who's the brains in this relationship
When we're both in red kagoules
We went and cracked the safe but lost the jewels
We took the shine out the sun
Blew the clouds out the sky
Took the wind and the rain and the frost
Just inches below us the river runs dry
And the love that once took us across
The kiss we exchanged
That built us a bridge
Has sunk to its knees in the sand
The petals and sticks we dropped from the ridge
Have gone with the ring from your hand

Now I look out the window
From the end of the bed
And the moon shines so clearly above
Looking down at my children
And patting their heads
Whisper 'good luck sure looks after love'
But moonlight through keyhole, starlight through crack
Is all the light we'll likely see
And till death I depart, or mummy comes back
No person casts shadow on me
We took the shine out the sun
Blew the clouds out the sky
Took the wind and the rain and the frost
Just inches below us the river runs dry
And the love that once took us across
The kiss we exchanged
That built us a bridge
Has sunk to its knees in the sand
The petals and sticks we dropped from the ridge
Have gone with the ring from your hand
Have gone from the ring from your hand
