Give up the ghost, hold me close
Sing me the song that you love most
The words hang like diamonds with music inside them
Colliding in time with your mouth

Find me alone
Walk me home
Show me a world I've not yet known

The buildings are breathing
They cry when they're sleeping
We're hurting their feelings somehow

So send an apology made of technology
Bricks turn to circuits instead
Sing like a microphone
Talk like a telephone
Watch like a film in your head

Bleed like a needle
Don't listen to people
They only say things so that something gets said

Cough like a cigarette
Turn like a turnicate
Burn like a firetruck red

Sleep like a pillow and
Wait like a window
In winter with snow-covered ledge

The birds will return soon
To bend round your bedroom
While radios talk to the dead
And you dream like a bed
Dream like a bed

Whisper and speak
Touch my cheek
Show me the smile that makes me weak

CARS crash whenever we kiss
Everything vanishes
Sweetness is all I feel

Write on my hand
Understand
Breath in the way only you can

You know that you are both the love note caught in my throat and the hope that it's real

So end like a funeral
Send out the usual
Static, please, from your lungs

Swallow like medicine
I think you're better than
Anything under the sun

Oh life remystified
Oh walking valentine
Oh unimaginable love

Smoke like a factory
Steal my identity
Sell it right back to me now

Break like tradition in need of revision
Transmissions will listen like sound
Think like a memory, warm and Septembery
Endlessly coming unwound

Till you find yourself out
With the graves in the ground
Tears rolling out of eyes
As wet as a cloud
But it's only the sound of your joy coming down.
