I went to a picture show
I sat alone in the darkened rows
And there were made up dreams on the silver screen
But I – wouldn’t leave until the show was over
I couldn’t leave until the show was over

I walked in on you and him
You were upside down in handcuffs and chains
And there were pictures of it on the internet
And I can’t leave the house in case the neighbours saw it
I can’t show my face in case the neighbours saw it again

Well we were unseen
Never thought that this was meant for you and me
Unreciprocated dreams
Unarticulated ways to be and see

I went to a picture show
I sat alone in the velvet rows
And I bit my thumb amidst the chewing gum
And the debris of the lives that had passed before me
The debris of the times that had passed before me

Well I was unseen
Never thought that this was meant for me anyway
And the time might come for dreams
And the time might come for you and me

And I might go to sleep
It’s all I want to do anyway
And I might go to sleep
Holding you instead of me
