Shards of light pierce the ragged curtain
I’m switched on but she’s asleep, I’m certain
I wear a forlorn face for I must say she frightens me
Who’s starring in those dreams you’re having,
lying there beside me?
My gaze follows shadows dancing on the ceiling
Will you walk away today?
Is this the game you’re playing
I notice your lips move and now I’m really flailing
Could it be your lover’s name that you’re saying?
I know I heard you whisper
And my heart crumbles
For it’s my brother’s name that you just mumbled
In the kitchen, I polish the carving knife,
dry the dishes
And put away the pans
You’re losing your life tonight.
Not what one wishes.
But if I can’t have you, there’s no one else who can.
