Are you still talking to
All of those dead film stars
Like you used to
And are you still thinking of
All of those pretty rhymes
And perfect crimes
Like you used to love
And if you're still alive
When you're twenty five
Shall I kill you like you asked me to
If you're still alive
When you're twenty five
Shall I kill you I know you told me to
But I really don't want to

I remember every single thing you said to me
Until I’m up on Calvary
Ah you said, you said new love grows on trees
New love grows on trees
New love grows on... new love grows on trees

Are you still shaking out
All the dead wood from your bed love
Well times don't change and you're still thinking of
All of those pretty rhymes full of divine
Oh no, you really don't have to
If you're still alive
When you're twenty five
Shall I kill you
Oh I know you asked me to
But I really don't want to

I remember every single thing you said to me

You said new love grows on trees
New love grows on trees
New love grows on, new love grows on trees

    General CommentIt's a good song. Do you know the version of the babyshambles sessions where they talk at the end of the song:
    Carl: 'i never told you to'
    Pete: 'it's just a song'

    the good old days
    :'-)

    General CommentCarl: 'i never told you to'
    Pete: 'it's just a song' - i never noticed that, quite an insight.

    but apparently they did make a death pact
