Darling Pretty (Mark Knopfler)

LYRICS

It's time to come away, my Darling Pretty
It's time to come away on the changing tide
Time to come away, Darling Pretty
And I need you darling by my side

Heal me with a smile, Darling Pretty
Heal me with a smile and a heart of gold
Carry me awhile, my Darling Pretty
Heal my aching heart and soul

Just like a castaway
Lost upon an endless sea
I saw you far away
Come to rescue me

Cast away the chains, Darling Pretty
Cast away the chains away behind
Take away my pain, my Darling Pretty
And the chains that once were yours and mine

There will come a day, Darling Pretty
There will come a day when hearts can fly
Love will find a way, my Darling Pretty
Find a heaven for you and I
Love will find a way, my Darling Pretty
Find a heaven for you and I

DARLING PRETTY SINGLE

I remember very distincly this beautiful tune/song being played on Radio 1 at the time (1996)

I very soon after hearing this booked up tickets to see Mark & band play at the Bournemouth International Centre in May 1996 during the Golden Heart tour...
The rest is now history!!!

The track for anyone who wasn't aware was used in the 1996 Film - 'Twister'.....

I was at that show too, and I was really excited as it was the first time seeing Mark for me, as I missed out on seeing Dire Straits.

I noticed this while watching Darling Pretty (Promo Video) OFFICIAL on the Mark Knopfler channel.  This flashes for just a second (as the lady in the red coat walks though the cars stuck in traffic).  I am assuming this is Kitty??  Anyway, I thought it was fun to spot this – whoever it is!

It would be too cool for already genius song! You can ask Guy, but he won't answer anyway, because he won't answer relevant questions :lol

Could well be! They married in 1997, but knew each other for three years prior....

I have always thought that "pretty" is "Kitty".
