"Lucy" is a song by The Divine Comedy and the only single from the album Liberation.

It is based on three of the Lucy poems by William Wordsworth. The song starts with "I travelled among unknown men", it which the poet tells us of his two-fold love for England and for an Englishwoman called Lucy. The second poem, "She dwelt among the untrodden ways", is about a woman the poet loved called Lucy, who is now dead. The last poem, "A slumber did my spirit seal", is about the deceased Lucy.[1]
