Track 8 of 10.



You were in my water
A needle through my skin
A towel and a telephone
But we were not alone

And things were nearer
When you were clearer

And moonlight faces
Remember swinging places
In this encyclopaedia of you

The silence shared
I watch you sleep
From above your bed
Your precious beauty left unbled

And things were clearer
When you were nearer

And the doors were open
The slowly broken
In this encyclopaedia of you

The words unspoken
The passion lost
For the things I fought
Left with you my only thought

The last things left quite pleasantly
Ending always more fatally

So promise things that never end
Leave me with presents I'll never send
