The Secret He Had Missed – Manic Street Preachers Lyrics

The sea – your room – your god
The interior world you loved
You turned faces into icons
But the mirror killed all your freedom

Quiet steady and unique
Opposites united by blood and deed
Boredom your biggest enemy
Left your heart on the beach in Tenby

I’ll be remembered as your brother
All my work adds up to nothing
You ignored the revolutions
They just led you nowhere

The secret he had missed
Was lying at his fingertips
The girl in the long blue dress
Cast a spell and left us blessed

Lost your heart and soul in France
Prayed so hard that love would last
Bohemian with no control
If only you had your sister’s soul

Never had the chance to reconcile
Living separate and lonely lives
If only we could meet again
We could find a different end

I’ll be remembered as your brother
All my work adds up to nothing
You ignored the revolutions
They just led you nowhere

The secret he had missed
Was lying at his fingertips
The girl in the long blue dress
Cast a spell and left us blessed

Walls defeated by the sea
Still resonate an imperfect dream
The whispering waves still cleanse and clean
They can’t wipe away what you’ve seen
