I Remember (Death in the Afternoon)

This song is by Ultravox and appears on the album Rage in Eden (1981) and on the bonus tracks of the album Quartet (1982).

We turned the dial, we heard the news and laughed, we don't know why
We drank the wine and spoke of times we knew of days gone by
We flicked through photographs we had, somehow they made us sad
Remembering the times we used to have, it made us cry

Oh I remember death in the afternoon

A silence fell about the room with harsh and heavy calm
The lovers and the friends all felt the same, it kept us warm
We raised our glass and drank to times we had, but'd see no more
The pictures of the past would haunt us still, and there remains

Oh I remember death in the afternoon

(Repeat chorus 2 times)
