lyrics

All my photographs are dead,
my memories are still as corpses,
my ghosts as dull as dust.
This is my life you see strewn across the floor.
My passion sleeps sprawled across my bed,
my love's locked in the bottom drawer,
my thoughts are scraps of paper
crumpled on the desk

beneath the cups of coffee,
underneath the stains.
But maybe I should chill out, spark a cigarette,
try to spark another flame.

It just always turns to ash again.

Someone help me
please
I'm falling down on you.

And all my dreams are torn to shreds.
I took them to the doctor.
She's doing all she can but somehow
I do not think that they'll pull through.
I'm dying. Or maybe I'm in love.
I think I'll open up that drawer and have a peek inside,
look in the corners
and see if I'd see you

and then perhaps I'll hang myself.
Or maybe I'll just faint.
Or maybe I should chill out, spark a cigarette,
blow smoke-rings through my latest flame.

But it'll always turn to ash again.

Someone help me
please
I'm falling down on you.

Why can't you see

that you are all I have to feel?
