She plaits her hair, I bite my nails
We balance love on the scales
I wind the clock and go to bed
Our love is hanging on a thread
She gets undressed, I undress too
The draft is cold in my bedroom
We cuddle up and say goodnight
It's all the love there is tonight.
I can't be brave enough
She cannot say what we're feeling
Day after day
We're going through the motions
We find it hard to let each other go
She boils the eggs, I make the tea
Outside the sun shines on the street
We're at that point here love has gone
The fuse is lit, it won't be long
I take a walk, she cleans the house
This is the end, I'm in no doubt
But neither one of us can show
The slightest sign of letting go

FROM THE ALBUM: Play.
COMPILATIONS: Excess Moderation.
From the Excess Moderation sleevenotes.
Glenn: Lovingly crafted and super shiny, this is the acceptable
face of our eccentricty. Another one in my top ten. Chris: These
chord changes will knock you dead once you learn to play them. Mixed together
with the beautiful melody and spine chilling vocal, you could not ask for
much else in a day's work. Playing this live recently on our acoustic tour,
I realized how great Glenn's voice can be, tender and very powerful.
