I've seen your fairground hair, your seaside eyes
Your vampire tooth, your little truth and your tiny lies
And I know your trembling hand, your guilty prize
Your sleeping limbs, your foreign hymns and your midnight cries

So dry your eyes and turn your head away
Now there's nothing more to say now you're gone away

I know your trail of tears, your slip of hand
Your monkey claw, your monkey paw and your monkey hand
And I've seen your trick of blood, your trap of fire
Your ancient wound, your scarlet moon, your jailhouse smile

So dry your eyes and turn your head away
Now there's nothing more to say now you're gone away

So dry your eyes and turn your head away
Now there's nothing more to say now you're gone away

I'll miss your urchin smile, your orphan tears
Your shining prize, your tiny cries, your little fears
And I will miss your fairground hair, your seaside eyes
Your little truth, and your vampire tooth and your tiny lies

So dry your eyes and turn your head away
Now there's nothing more to say now you're gone away

So dry your eyes and turn your head away
Now there's nothing more to say now you're gone away

So dry your eyes and turn your head away
Now there's nothing more to say now you've gone away

    General CommentThis is outrageous! No comments? Well...

    This is a beautiful song. I think it is about two people that split, but know each other so well that every memory of the other hurts. And, listening to the song, I really have a feeling that the pain is almost physical... such great lyrics!

    General CommentAdding to sobot's comment, I like how he only mentions the sweet, quirky, passionate things about her, nothing negative.
