lyrics

I lost a dear old friend the other night
I couldn't bring her back no matter all my might
She qualified my depths of mind
With tears and laughter of the kind

A room full of stars and some papers around
Left me sober when I picked her from the ground
I tried to revive but the words were too strong
My tongue kills her
And now she lives in a sullen love song

An idol slumping on his sunken throne
Is vulnerable underneath all that Testerone
One fragile human only flesh and bone
Brittle bearing all that's said and done

A blow to head left a million to blame
As they bathed in his light and then snuffed out the flame
They tried to revive when they saw it was wrong
But a thousand bad words made a dirge of his song

I lost a dear old friend the other night
I killed her with my harbouring heart in all its spite
She qualified my deepest fright -
I'm just the same try as I might

A room full of stars and some papers around
And the ring of the bell left a terrible sound
I tried to revive but the damage was done
My tongue killed her
And now she lives in a sullen love song
