"Only Bad Signs" as written by and Billy Bragg....
He answers the phone,
So I know you're not alone.
I'll find only bad signs
If you've let him answer this time.

When I return,
To find letters that you've burnt.
I'll find only bad signs
If you have burnt his, not mine.

When you go out, I do not doubt,
That I'll find only bad signs,
By things that you leave here.

I'd rather go blind,
Than continue to find,
Only bad signs,
You know that you're leaving.

I cannot guess,
How much more I can take.
When you're with him,
Three's a crowd, and a heartbreak.

The look on your face,
And the long silent days.
I see only bad signs
If we are lost in our own home.

The sun may rise,
But not in my eyes.
I see only bad signs
And sorrow and shadows.

I just cannot guess,
How much more I can take.
When you're with him,
Three's a crowd, and a heartbreak.

He answers the phone,
So I know you're not alone.
I'll find only bad signs
If you've let him answer this time.

When I return,
To find letters that you've burnt.
I'll find only bad signs
If you have burnt his, not mine.

Only bad signs,
Only bad signs,
Only bad signs.
