"Bury My Lovely" as written by Emil Adler and Julie Flanders....
Cover the mirror
Hide in your dreams
Forget what they told you
Forget what it means

A picture worth a thousand lies
The memory and the mirror
Nothing but what came before
Nothing but a closing door

A picture woth a thousand lies
A thousand words
A thousand eyes
Bury my lovely
Hide in your room
Bury my lovely
Forget me soon
Forget me
Forget me now
Forget me not

Cover the madness
Cover the fear
No one will ever
Know you were her

A figure in the hallway light
Returning like a ghost
Something that was left behind
Something in a child's mind


Bury my lovely
Bury the lies
Bury me under
A thousand goodbyes

A shadow from another time
Is waiting in the night
Something happened long ago
Something that will not let go

    General CommentI heard this song in 1994, when I was still in high school, and thought I had dreamt it. I was obsessed - I had no idea who it was or the name of the song. Every so often I've done web searches for the lyrics and found nothing. Tonight I must've finally gotten lucky cos I finally found it.
