They say you died in your sleep
From a poison vapour leak in 1917
You were only 23
The time I saw you last was in a piece of broken glass
Where you move across the room
And i smelled your cheap perfume

Late...the candles cast long shadows
No matter where you are

Shiver! In the apartment where I live
And the death you relive
Is too close to my bed
And it replays in my head
You are the ghost in the machine
You are the ghost in my routine
And i find you quite obscene
Because of the way you make me fiend

Late...the candles cast long shadows
No matter where you are

I dont know what to do
Because your body I see through
But i could not see your face
Though i saw your breath in the mirror
And there's one thing you should know
It's that I feel for you long ago
And everything that I do it begins and ends with you

Late...the candles cast long shadows
No matter where you are
The candles cast long shadows

Adelaide? (there is no one there)
