Line(s) of the Day #Vienna

Ultravox vienna

Alone in the night as the daylight brings
A cool empty silence
The warmth of your hand and a cold grey sky
It fades to the distance
The image has gone only you and I
It means nothing to me
This means nothing to me

Taken from the album title track Vienna (1981) by the British band Ultravox. The single, inspired by the film The Third Man (1949), has long been considered one of the finest songs to just miss out on the top spot of the UK charts.
