I Lied 04:40
Holding hands down by the shore And I know God knows it feels so fine Holding hands down by the shore And I know God knows it feels so fine I said I loved you I said I loved you Holding hands down by the shore Leaned over and whispered in your ear But I lied I lied I couldn't love you if I tried Holding you in my arms In my bed God knows it feels so fine Holding you in my arms In my bed God knows it feels so fine I said I loved you I said I loved you Holding you in my arms In my bed I whispered in your ear But I lied I lied I feel so dead inside I couldn't love you if I tried

Ray Of Light 06:48
Ray of light I never see Through the passing clouds Or through the trees When you left Into the pouring rain I knew I’d never See you again Ray of light Won’t shine through When love is through When love is through Late one night I heard you at my door But I pretended like I wasn’t home Please forgive Me for what I’ve done But you know I would’ve done it Like I did before Ray of light Won’t shine through What can I do What can I do Ray of light I never see Through the passing clouds Or through the trees When you left Into the pouring rain I knew I’d never See you again Ray of light Won’t shine through When love is through When love is through

Lost my way It's alright Lost my way It's alright I've been dreaming of love And we're so close And we're so near Oh when we touch Oh we disappear Lost my way I don't care Lost my way I don't care I've been dreaming of love And we're so close And we're so near Oh when we touch Oh we disappear

I Love You 06:44
If I could I'd put away my sorrow I wouldn't wait until tomorrow To let you know how I feel If I could I'd look you in the eyes And it wouldn't be a surprise I would know what to say But I'm afraid Of what's at stake Of what a love like This could do Oh it's my fate To hesitate From saying I love you But I would if You said you'd never leave This little promise always to keep This broken heart that wants you If I could Every time you held me close Remembering when love at most Burned in flames Died away If I could I'd take you by the hand And I'm sure you'd understand Why it is I want you so But I'm afraid Of what's at stake Of what a love like This could do Oh it's my fate To hesitate From saying I love you But I would if You said you'd never leave This little promise always to keep This broken heart that wants you

I got a message tonight It was on my machine She said, I quote, 'Hope you're not asleep 'Cause I'm in my bed And the lights are dim And the air is hot So won't you come on in.' I got a message tonight It was on my machine But I got home too late I couldn't even see That the stars above Deter me from love 'Cause she's in her bed And the lights are dim And the air is hot So won't you come on in
6.
Walked away Released from all my crimes Walked away Released from all my crimes But I could never hide What I kept inside Walked away Released from all my sins Walked away Released from all my sins But the cruelest thing Was all my suffering When I held you that night I knew it felt so right I knew it felt so right Walked away Released from all my crimes Walked away Released from all my crimes But I could never hide What I kept inside
7.
Ten Nights 05:18
Storybook fable is ending As ten angels are descending I forget that you Are my only friend Love is my only devotion Ten little steps to the ocean Ten nights to decide Whether I can live alone Ten nights all alone Praying you haven’t gone I can’t stop love I can’t erase What’s been written down Storybook fable is ending As ten angels are descending I forget that you Are my only friend
8.
She knew it was all over When she turned her back On her used-to-been She knew it was all over When she turned from him She turned to me But what was there to say I see that you've been crying Your old man's arms Like to bear their fists But my arms have hands like The graceful mist And all they want to do Is hold you
9.
Well, hello there My, it's been a long, long time And how am I doin'? Oh I guess that I'm doin' fine Well, it's been been so long now But it seems now, that it was only yesterday Gee, ain't it funny how time just slips away? And how's your new love? Well, I hope that he's doin' fine And I heard you told him That you'd love him till the end of time Now that's the same thing that you told me And it seems like only yesterday Gee, ain't it funny how time just slips away? I gotta go now I guess I'll see you around I don't know when though 'Cause I never know when I'll be back in town But remember what I tell you That in time you're gonna pay And it's suprisin', how time just slips away
10.
Oh, it's a long, long while from May to December 
But the days grow short when you reach September
 When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
 One hasn't got time for the waiting game

 Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few
 September, November
 And these few precious days I'll spend with you
 These precious days I'll spend with you
11.
Spiritual 08:37
Jesus I don’t want to die alone Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone My love wasn’t true Now all I have is you Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone Jesus If you hear my last breath Don't leave me here Left to die a lonely death I know I have sinned But lord I’m suffering Jesus, oh Jesus If you hear my last breath Jesus I don’t want to die alone Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone My love wasn’t true Now all I have is you Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone All my troubles All my pain Will leave me once again
12.
One time long ago When the sun had dimmed it's glow When the clouds were filled with Rain and cold That was a long time That was a long time A long time ago Love has left me all alone Her secrets left they're better left untold Why oh why she left I'll never know But that was a long That was a long time A long time ago That was a long time A long time ago

We drove eight hours from London to Antwerp. Two days earlier we’d driven eight hours from Paris to London. Lots of driving. We arrived at Monty, a two hundred person capacity theater on Montignystraat in Antwerp. A Belgian artist called Biack, AKA Bart Demey, opened the show. We stayed at Hotel Rubenshof, an old converted mansion at Amerikalei 115. The next day we drove a half hour to Haarlem. From there we drove to Brugge, and then we flew home. The long drives were over.

Sometime in 1999 or 2000 I received three CDs in the mail. They were bootlegs of Spain concerts, of varying degrees of sound quality, and they all had the same cover, a rip-off of the 1991 Dinosaur Jr. album Green Mind, which had in turn used the iconic photograph by Joseph Szabo. It was obviously meant to poke fun at the Blue Moods record cover, and I think it’s pretty funny. With this post the trifecta is completed. The two other bootleg recordings with this image can be found at spaintheband.bandcamp.com/album/spain-rockamadour-dour-belgium-01-december-1995, and spaintheband.bandcamp.com/album/spain-aula-magna-lisbon-portugal-10-may-1996.

As of 2021 both Kultuurfaktorij Monty and Hotel Rubenshof are still going strong.
