"Genevieve" as written by and Eric Emil Bachmann....
Tenderly she lays on a pedestal I made
Far beneath her I have come to watch her breathe
Bust I must walk away 'cause I know that when she wakes
From her dreams I'm not the one her heart will seek

And what I cannot have I do not need
So I won't be going up to see
Genevieve
Genevieve
Genevieve

Every night is the same I walk to her iron gate
And as a train goes by I sneak inside to see
Well maybe I'm no good at giving up a thing I should
Set it free the want for one so out of reach

But when the lights go out on Barber Street
I just close my eyes and start to dream
Of Genevieve
Genevieve
Genevieve
Genevieve

    "Well maybe I'm no good at giving up a thing I should" is an amazing line.
