We Marched for Love and Pride

For a Friend… “Somewhere else, someone else is crying too / Another man has lost a friend, I bet he feels the way I do”

The Communards – For A Friend (Official Video)
Songwriters: James Somerville / Richard Coles

And all the dreams we had, I will carry on
As I watch the sun go down, watching the world fade away
All the memories of you come rushing back to me
As I watch the sun go down, watching the world fade away
All I want to do is kiss you once goodbye, goodbye
As I watch the sun go down, watching the world fade away
All the memories of you come rushing back to me
As I watch the sun go down, a darkness comes to me
All I want to do is kiss you once goodbye

In memory of Mark Ashton

Jamie Doward writing in The Guardian about the film Pride speculates:

Pride shows how disparate groups of gay and lesbian people were inspired by Ashton, a gay man from Portrush in County Antrim, who was an active member of the Young Communist League, a fact overlooked in the film, apparently so as not to alienate American audiences.

As I watch the sun go down…
