Alan Freeman Days

 The man who stands alone
 The jewel thatís set in stone
 He was there with every girl I fell for,
 The world he made his own
 A power upon the throne
 And I swear he made the summer longer
 And with Lennon and Bolan gone
 And the music their memoriam
 And the past is part of all our lives
 And my brother Maurice is staying alive

 And I remember, all my life,
 Yes, I remember the distant light,
 Yes, I remember burning bright
 Alan Freeman Days
 Oh yeah

 The magic would emerge
 On Radio Luxembourg
 In his words; give me what I hunger
 And we all forgot so soon
 When they landed a man upon the moon
 But I wonít forget the pain inside
 The day that Alan Freeman died

 But I remember, all my life,
 Yes, I remember the distant light,
 Yes, I remember burning bright
 Alan Freeman Days
 Oh Yeah

 Over the years I hear you call
 In a world thatís full of change
 You are the flame that keeps on burning strong
 (Insert: Alanís voice on radio)
 Alan Freeman Days

 But I remember, all my life,
 Yes, I remember the distant light,
 Yes, I remember burning bright
 Alan Freeman Days, Alan Freeman Days,
