As the much-loved band announce a career-spanning box set, Radio X pays tribute with a selection of their most memorable and moving words.
“I'll need heart and you'll need courage / We all need time.”
“I noticed you / You stood out like a sore thumb / The most beautiful sore thumb I'd ever seen.”
“If you love them / Go and tell them / Tell them over and over and over again / Heaven forbid opportunities missed.”
“Thought and I thought and I thought of you / I thought we'd be doing the faithful few / Together, together.”
“Came out of the changing room / And absolutely sod all had changed / So I'll stay in your lanes.”
“How was I to ever believe it? / It's never too late / Until it's too late / And I've been stranded / And I need something.” Photo: PA
“First love, Last love / Only love, it's only love.”
“No one was crying / They simply got a little something in their eye” Photo: PA
“The storm came and tore limbs from the trees / Like a drowning whale / And the thought of it brought us all down to our knees.” Photo: PA
“So with toothpaste kisses and lines / Stay with me, I'll stay with you / Doing things that lovers do / What else to do?”
“Oh, from the seed they've grown me / And I thank those, those who kept me company / They are a wall of arms around me."
“In the end nothing comes easy / So you find a way to take a little with you."
“If you've got no kind words to say / You should say nothing more at all”
“One last push with all the strength of us all / Under one great shadow floorshow / Take the strain for us all” Photo: PA
