Olivia, never forget the night we met, no
Olivia, I still feel you in my bones
Olivia, that old familiar ceiling staring up at you sleepless its true
For the last time tonight

Think I’ll be leaving now
With Josephine into the light
Sick of dreary town, City of endless night
I’m leaving now I’ve had my fill with killing time
Tired of falling down, had it with this cruel and usual life

Olivia, I found you in the doorway waiting
Olivia, I got so sick of you
Olivia, years have passed since you’ve last spoken
Olivia, your gauze has been bled through

Think I’ll be leaving now
With Josephine into the light
Sick of dreary town, City of endless night
I’m leaving now I’ve had my fill with killing time
Tired of falling down, had it with this cruel and usual life

I can feel you here like hunger its building up like snow
There used to be a secret here now everybody knows
Clandestine operation compromised beyond repair
We used to have a hope deep in our hearts
Now we have nothing but despair
And our Olivia

Think I’ll be leaving now
With Josephine into the light
Sick of dreary town, City of endless night
I’m leaving now I had my fill with killing time
Tired of falling down, had it with this cruel and usual life

    General CommentIt's a song about being sick of someone who's a bore and who no longer excites another. It's about stagnation and settleing and giving up. It's about the same ol' same ol' crap day in and day out under the guise of freedom; individualism; and fun. I like the song, but I don't live a boring life and never plan on living one. Anious to seek the company of those who are actually FUN and young in spirit...not dried up and who don't know they died long ago.
