about

Diana wrote this in 'Soa Joao da Boa Vista', Brazil. "My partner Doug and I were sitting on a verandah on holiday with friends. I loved the afro-samba riff that he was playing on guitar, snatched it onto my recording device, and got stuck on it. The opening line came right away; 'Here in the hour before dawn…' It’s a bit Bond theme, about having an escape plan..."

lyrics

Written by Diana May Clark and Doug de Vries

Here in the hour before dawn
Where dreams are true desires born
And no-one ever tells it all, no
Just incase their cover's blown

I always knew one day you’d run
And jump aboard the circus train
But once you tasted every colour
All your cravings would be plain

And if I ever get the chance to choose again

I’ll take on sweet, sweet vanilla to the end

What else is there for me? What else is there?

I think I’ll go to Barcelona
The city’s promise shining gold
Saudade draws me to flamenco
Calls the melancholy home

And if I ever get the chance to choose again

I’ll take on sweet, sweet vanilla to the end

What else is there for me? What else is there?

We wanted to rule our own domains
Questions struck on each refrain

We were a bridge of healing respite
Between shipwrecked affairs

We were craving dares

And if I ever get the chance to choose again
I’ll take on sweet, sweet vanilla to the end
What else is there for me? What else is there?

I am putting it out, I am putting it, putting it,
I’m putting it out, out to you, out to you…
