Song Meaning
Verse 1
1997 Livid Festival
Me and Sarah my best friend
Stripy tights and fairy wings
As safe as safe can be
Verse 2
We drank the gin we'd snuck in
Danced to Ben Folds Five
I turned around to Sarah
Couldn't see her anywhere
As safe as safe can be
Verse 3
Oh Sarah, I didn't mean to let you down
But you left me on my own, Sarah
Why didn't you scream?
Verse 4
I went to all the stages
And to the St John's stand
The man said 'you just missed her
Stay - maybe she'll come back again'
I sat and watched the crowds
Verse 5
My father came at midnight
We searched 'til half-past four
I was half hysterical
My father wasn't sure
He called for the police
Verse 6
Oh Sarah, I didn't mean to let you down
But you left me on my own, Sarah
Why didn't you scream? Why didn't you shout?
Sarah, I hate it that I let you down
But you left me on my own, Sarah
Why didn't you scream? Why didn't you shout?
Why didn't you shout?
Verse 7
The next day the sergeant
Found her blue dress in the creek
Her parents were so angry
They put the blame on me
Verse 8
Then a fortnight later
Sarah knocked upon their door
Her mother asked her 'Where've you been?'
And she said
'I don't know, I don't know, I'm not sure
I'm not sure, I can't remember anything at all'
Verse 9
Oh Sarah, I didn't mean to let you down
But you left me on my own, Sarah
Why didn't you scream? Why didn't you shout?
Sarah, I hate it that I let you down
But you left me on my own, Sarah
Why didn't you scream? Why didn't you shout?
