Shedding tears for affairs I’m a funny little thing I can tell you this for nothing Affairs don’t win Can you handle one more dirty secret one more dirty night? Is it true what they say? Will it make us go blind? You had to drive Look me in the eye Whisper don’t cry I’ll take an interest in Illustration It should be a laugh Your words are with me still They whisper in the grass Shedding tears for affairs I’m a stupid little thing I can tell you this for nothing You won’t win You had to drive (I didn’t want to) Look me in the eye (I found it hard to) Whisper don’t cry (I had to whisper don’t cry) So I cried

I can't call you my phone will be relieved You can't call me 'cause someone else will feel deceived I don't understand this how did you get hold of me? You've got me questioning my fidelity I'll send a package in the post I've got love to send Should I want you the most? It feels like I have no defense The tree in my garden is blossoming still It's late this year it's just like me it’s wavering Going through the motions I want to be at home It's an effort to get on this plane at all It was love for sure Every cliché in the book I loved you more and more with every desperate look Don't thank me for breakfast with your naked skin Don't lie don't pretend you feel anything My heart is no longer a friend of mine It wants to betray me most of the time I love you my darling I love you my friend I love you my darling But It feels like is the end

Super trouper beams are gonna blind me But I won't feel blue Like I always do 'Cause somewhere in the crowd there's you I was sick and tired of everything When I called you last night from glasgow All i do is eat and sleep and sing Wishing every show was the last show (wishing every show was the last show) So imagine I was glad to hear you're coming (glad to hear you're coming) Suddenly I feel all right and suddenly it's gonna be And it's gonna be so different When I'm on the stage tonight Tonight the Super trouper lights are gonna find me Shining like the sun sup p per troup p per Smiling having fun sup p per troup p per Feeling like a number one Tonight the Super trouper beams are gonna blind me But I won't feel blue sup p per troup p per Like I always do sup p per troup p per 'Cause somewhere in the crowd there's you Facing twenty thousand of your friends How can anyone be so lonely Part of a success that never ends Still I'm thinking about you only (still I'm thinking about you only ) There are moments when I think I'm going crazy (crazy think I'm going crazy ) But it's gonna be alright ( you'll soon be changing everything Everything) Will be so different when I'm on the stage tonight Tonight the Super trouper lights are gonna find me Shining like the sun (sup p per troup p per ) Smiling having fun (sup p per troup p per ) Feeling like a number one Tonight the Super trouper beams are gonna blind me But I won't feel blue (sup p per troup p per) Like I always do (sup p per troup p per) 'Cause somewhere in the crowd there's you So I'll be there when you arrive The sight of you will prove to me I'm still alive And when you take me in your arms And hold me tight I know it's gonna mean so much tonight Tonight the Super trouper lights are gonna find me Shining like the sun Smiling having fun Feeling like a number one Tonight the Super trouper beams are gonna blind me But I won't feel blue (sup p per troup p per) Like I always do (sup p per troup p per) 'Cause somewhere in the crowd there's you Super trouper lights are gonna find me Shining like the sun (sup p per troup p per) Smiling having fun (sup p per troup p per) Feeling like a number one

about

"Tears for affairs" is the fourth song taken as a single from the highly praised third album by CAMERA OBSCURA. Along with the title track, the CD-single format includes one new, previously unreleased track: "The last song", as well as a brand new video of “Lloyd, I´m ready to be heartbroken”, directed by Victoria Bergsman (THE CONCRETES, TAKEN BY TREES) and filmed by Blair Young, the man behind most of the band’s videos; the clip features artwork by François Marry, French designer and musician living in England.

As usual, the 7" is a limited edition vinyl release, and it features an exclusive, previously unreleased B-side: a cover version of ABBA “Super Trouper”.
