you looked better pre charlotte gainsbourgh hair
with those eyes all stuck up in black stuff
you looked better when you didn't remind me
when you didn't remind me that I could've been better
i hear you've married now
i see you're getting on
i'll keep on writing
because i really don't know when to stop
i'll sleep better now
those dreams were frightful
I miss the better ones
but guess i learned to live with the sun
sweetheart enough, see i've been dormant forever
now i'm waking up, a broken bitter spectre
run run run run run run (who's better than)
i know you know that i love you all i love you all but i have to go
(i guess I learnt to live with the) sun sun sun sun (who's better than)
i know you know that i love you all i love you all but i have to go
i'm waking up / a plastic spiteful emperor
up up up / forever tearing my hair out

HER CHEST WAS AN ATHLETE
MAKE HER RUN FASTER
DANCE HARDER
BEAT A BIT LOUDER

chase her through the streets at night
i could never keep up (she keeps on / baby is) galloping

(can you cope without her?)
so. i. had some time to kill so asked her
with a hand and a heart in plaster
can we go jumping from high windows
how i fell for her
she. said. "i can spare a little time but after
you and i we collide, disaster
can you keep thinking of what might have been?
can you cope with that, huh?"
(can you cope without her?)
