Lyrics
:

Remember the place we used to know all those years ago
Remember the times we used to have there when we were so young
We'd look to the future in our naive way
We'd look from the sands the world seemed far away

So when we heard we tried to save it but we, we went unheard
And even in the eleventh hour they still said no
Look at that building it's just falling down
The cost of repair was too much for this town

NEVER AGAIN WILL I STAND ON THE PAVILION STEPS
NEVER AGAIN WILL I STAND ON THE PAVILION STEPS

Never

So on that place there lies a tarmac mat, nothing remains
Ashes to ashes dust to dust we must return some day
They say there's a farm field so far away
Where nothing will grow again or so they say

NEVER AGAIN WILL I STAND ON THE PAVILION STEPS
(NEVER AGAIN WILL I STAND ON THE PAVILION STEPS)
NEVER AGAIN WILL I STAND ON THE PAVILION STEPS
(NEVER AGAIN WILL I STAND ON THE PAVILION STEPS)

Is this the so called modem age that I've heard about
With the new age and it's new cage that we, we can't escape
The end of the place where our memories are kept
The end of the new way the start of the next
The end of a landmark the end of an era

NEVER AGAIN WILL I STAND ON THE PAVILION STEPS
(NEVER AGAIN WILL I STAND ON THE PAVILION STEPS)
NEVER AGAIN WILL I STAND ON THE PAVILION STEPS
(NEVER AGAIN WILL I STAND ON THE PAVILION STEPS)

Mike Peters Notes
:Another Alarm song that suffered the same fate as “Second Generation”. Lyrically it was about the legendary “Pavilion Theatre” in Rhyl which was demolished in the 1970’s to make way for a car park. Eddie MacDonald and myself actually met, at 4 years of age, on the steps that led to the beach whe nour mothers took us to play on the sands.
