about

In a bedroom abloom with an English rose I thought
That we were looking for each other’s hearts under all those winter clothes
We found them in bodies that need more than love
Found them in places you wouldn’t tell your mother about
La-da-da-da-da …

I’ve carried the day in so many ways
And still lost everything anyway, so -

Paint a red heart on the doors of your darlings
Make a grey mark on the doors of your dead
Paint a red heart on the doors of your darlings
Make a grey mark on the doors of your dead

The afternoon was astrewn with dark forebodings
We were having trouble telling all the magpies apart from the gathering crows
We dulled our brains on bottles of wine
Whetted our hearts til they were keen as any sidelong glance on the good old goodbyes

Paint a red heart on the doors of your darlings
Make a grey mark on the doors of your dead
Paint a red heart on the doors of your darlings
Make a grey mark on the doors of your dead

My god, I’m afraid of blonde girls now
And I hate French cars and the smell of marigolds
La-da-da-da-da …

I’ve buried that day in so many graves,
I’ve held its head under the countless waves, so …

Paint a red heart on the doors of your darlings
Make a grey mark on the doors of your dead
Paint a red heart on the doors of your darlings
Make a grey mark on the doors of your dead
Paint a red heart on the doors of your darlings
Make a grey mark on the doors of your dead
