Nik Kershaw's, "The Riddle"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Near a tree by a river
there's a hole in the ground,
Where an old man of Aran
goes around and around
And his mind is a beacon
in the veil of the night
For a strange kind of fashion
there's a wrong and a right
Why They're Nonsensical:
Nik Kershaw has been asked many times about the meaning behind these. Many have suspected drug influences, or possibly some old folk tales. The truth is far simpler. Nik had hurriedly written the music and melody for this track, and jotted down some lyrics for a guide vocal to be used in initial recordings - the idea being that the 'real' lyrics would be written as recording of the album progressed, and recorded later. After many attempts to find something that fitted, the 'real' lyrics never appeared, so the track remained with the guide vocal.

Nik Kershaw's, "Wouldn't It Be Good"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Wouldn't it be good to be on your side
the grass is always greener over there
wouldn't it be good if we could live without a care?
Why They're Nonsensical:
This song lyric almost always used to confuse me when I was younger. Is he saying that the grass is greener on the other side or is he just speaking metaphorically?
