A light in the east,
a bird on the sill
Boy in the attic
He is sober now

He clears his mess
into cupboards and desks
All but the picture
Against his chest

The carpet flares
The suns now there
Smell of toast
burning up the stairs

He quietly leaves
The room in peace
an empty stage
of a distant play

He hears a scream
The kettles steam
Still at the door
for a second before
He runs in...

My fears all gone
I see the dawn
I know the boy will be down soon

He'll pick me up
And he'll see I'm hurt
And he'll call the nurse
And they'll come and take me away
And I won't be coming back again

We'd dance, him the devil and me... a wish
Spellcast, never leaving each others arms
(repeat)
