Lighthouse Atop the old lighthouse The lamps no longer shine The only light a sailor sees On foggy nights is mine The last five men that left here Those brothers I admired Went off to join the navy When our dear old ma expired So I drink to my brothers Raise a glass and cheer I drink to their memory Though I have no body here I light a candle every night and call your name I stare out to the sea each night and call you home And so my brothers left me Too small to reach the light Their gunship never stood a chance as it was Hurled into the night The boat went down all hands on deck Or so the locals say And left alone and cupboard bare, well I soon Followed the same way So drink to my brothers Raise your glass and cheer Drink to our memory though there’s Still no body here I light a candle every night and call your name I stare out to the sea each night and do the same I light a candle every night and call your name I stare out to the sea each night and call you home

Fear of The Dark (Oh! Polyanna!) Every night when I go to my bed Sinister thoughts creep into my head What are those shadows behind the door What are those noises under the floor I reach for the light I shiver with fright Is this fear of the dark? Or is somebody there? I find it hard inside my head To face the darkness inside my bed You’ll find it hard inside my bed Embrace the darkness inside my head And oh! Polyanna will come to be with me Oh! Polyanna, sets my spirits free So she comes kissing me on my head Slithering softly into my bed Banishing shadows behind the door Kicking the blankets onto the floor She blows out the light She lights up the night No more fear of the dark Not with her body there Her body’s there…… I find it hard inside my head To face the darkness inside my bed You’ll find it hard inside your head Embrace the darkness inside your bed And oh! Polyanna will come to be with me Oh! Polyanna, set her spirit free Is it fear of the dark? Or is somebody there?

The Telephone We fell in love In London in a small theatre She took the stage I knew I could not forget her And so I weighed The conscience of a heavy debtor And as it fell apart I know I broke your heart Calling your number to ask if I can be forgiven - now From Canada Your sister sent an airmail letter She said you’d passed Quite peacefully to someplace better Once more I weighed The Conscience of the heavy debtor And as I fell apart I knew I broke you heart Calling your number to ask if I can be forgiven Calling that number to ask if I can be forgiven now Pick up, Give up, Pick up We fell in love I never meant to hurt you Kathy

'deserves to eat your soul on the long, burning road to Hell' BBC Online

'with this third album they’ve produced something of a masterpiece' The WORD

Tinkering with a winning formula can be a dangerous tactic, but after two critically lauded albums and three years of touring, The Miserable Rich decided that their third album warranted a different approach. So they holed themselves up in a stately home in Norfolk to write and record, bringing in a recording engineer and a drummer. Blickling Hall, the haunted ancestral home of the Boleyn family, provided the setting, and they spent a dark, bitter month isolated from the outside world, putting together the new tracks.

Miss You In The Days adds drums, electric guitar and piano to the band’s more recognisable core of violin, cello and double bass, achieving the desired heavier, more rhythmic sound (yes, now you can dance to The Miserable Rich!), and lyrically the songs play with themes of sex, death and possession.

The resultant album was unveiled at Halloween 2011 to immediate critical acclaim at home, in Europe and across the internet, making several critics’ top tens of the year. It is now available with three extra tracks - band favourites from the sessions that were just not finished in tome for its release.

'Like Beirut hosting a Wuthering Heights theme Halloween party, it’s a record that grows goose-bumps in the night... and so much more. It deserves to make The Miserable Rich leading players in a chamber pop movement in rude health... It deserves a Mercury Prize nod. And it deserves to eat your soul on the long, burning road to Hell.' Mark Beaumont, BBC Online

'TMR produce consistently beautiful, haunting music, and with this third album they’ve produced something of a masterpiece - sounds like the house band for Mary Shelley's hen night' The WORD

'playful, eloquent and sweepingly romantic' The Digital Fix
