I was stalking streets and was tearing down the posters
Letting building's lose their windows so the night could claim them
He introduced himself as the cruellest night of winter
As he slipped inside a bedroom and was gone forever

I took a long, long walk to an old front to wait there
For the silence in the front hall to be interrupted
Just like all those times when the telephone would ring out
But we were happy in the morning and were safe forever

And that this thing forever seems to last forever
This thing forever seems to last forever
This thing forever seems to last forever
And this thing forever's gonna last forever anyway

Now the polythene ghosts on the branches by the roadside
And they're scaring off the daylight til he finds his footing
And in your alleyway, there's a diagram that tells us
Exactly how the hell it got there, next to words that I wrote

You can call me if you want to
You can call me if you want to
You can call me if you want to
You can call me if you want to

And this thing forever seems to last forever
This thing forever seems to last forever
This thing forever seems to last forever
And this thing forever's gonna last forever anyway

This thing forever seems to last forever
This thing forever seems to last forever
This thing forever seems to last forever
This thing forever seems to last forever

And this thing forever seems to last forever
This thing forever seems to last forever
This thing forever seems to last forever
And this thing forever's gonna last forever anyway
