"Mavis" as written by and Jesse Budd....
I never noticed that the days
were fed by my fears
never noticed how those days
turned to weeks turned to months
turned to years
I never heard the clock tick
the floor creak the door click
the footsteps grow bold
and grow near
footsteps grow bold
and grow near

I never noticed that the mornings
had grown colder
never noticed that a hand
was sat on my shoulder
cold soft and heavy as lead
this hand of the dead
was guiding me
as I grew older
guiding me
as I grew older

buy me one last drink
before they throw me on the fire
I'm miserable, malodorous
a bigot, and a liar
but all showing off aside,
I need to look you in the eye
I need to understand the damage
that I've done before I die

I never noticed in the years
that you were there
that you were someone
so close and so lovely
never noticed all the stars
that sparkled above me
or pondered that the light
that they shone
was from a time that was gone
I never noticed when you told me
that you loved me
I think that you once told me
that you loved me

oh buy me one last drink
before they throw me on the fire
I'm miserable, malodorous
a bigot, and a liar
all showing off aside,
I need to look you in the eye
I need to understand the damage
that I've done before I die
before I die

so tell me that you love me
mrs. mavis o'riordan
I never noticed when
you told me that before oh
I've brought you ten red roses
mrs. mavis o'riordan
and I'm begging you
to open up your door

I'm begging you
to open up your door
I'm begging you
to open up your door
I'm begging you
to open up your door
