"Before You Close Your Eyes" as written by Stuart Ashton Staples, Neil Joseph Steven Fraser and Dickon James Hinchliffe....
Just as your eyes are closing
There was something that I meant to say
Like falling from my heart
But I don't know how
Before you close your eyes
I don't know how

[Chorus]
I never cry for our love
I never cry
I never cry for our love
I never cry

There's no goodbye
These hands have always lived through mine
Now everything I touch I feel I don't know how
Before you close your eyes
I don't know how

[Chorus]

I'm so cynical
It's in my face and
It's just the bird I caught
Leaves its taste hanging round round round

[Chorus]

Just as your eyes are closing
There was something that I meant to say
Like falling from my heart
But I don't know how
Before you close your eyes
I don't know how

[Chorus]

Never cry, never cry

    General CommentThis song, like nearly every Tindersticks song, is about some women that the guy has screwed over, or is about to screw over. He seems to take all the blame for these continually screwing up relationships - because he's a cheating dog probably
