I've Returned
      Last night I played the drunken fiddle
      Disabled love with a word of dribble
      On and on about some jumbled subject
      Said your friends were a bunch of Muppets
      Said your sister should have grown a moustache
      Said you didn't need to take off your mask
      Down the staircase I made my stagger
      I left you crying but it didn't matter

      So I sat inside my car and wonder
      A headache in my head like the thunder
      Chewed my nails like a guilty victim
      Couldn't see or feel the night or nothing
      Wanted to explain but all so desperate
      Love was like it was some investment
      Then I don't remember who said what when
      On a scrap of paper I placed my pen 

      When I woke up in the morning
      Beside you in the bed
      My mouth was full of nothing
      My arm around your head
      And I don't know how I got there
      I didn't want to check
      Now back between each other
      We're salvaging our wreck 

      You've thrown my jigsaw all over the floor
      We're at the deepest deep
      I thought our love had died forever
      But it just went to sleep
