Telephone rings, your voice says hello
I try to stay cool but my nerves start to show
I wonder what you will say that sounds so different today
So distant today, a million miles away
You left some shoes at my flat by the side of the bed
You're going out tonight to paint the town red
You say that you need them back
Your voice starts to crack
As I hold the tears back, hope you paint the town black

We talked about our failings in the garden by the underground
We held on to the railings so hard to keep from falling down
We walked through the park, the day got so dark
And you said it felt like a light had gone out
That we could never switch back on
It's over now, all over now
But I see you everywhere
It's over now, all over now
Your breath, your skin, your hair
And our train just pulled away and I miss you more each day

Waking up in the night on your side of the bed
I try to recall some of the things you said
About how drinking is dumb, how it just makes you numb
But I gotta have some, yeah I gotta have some
You know your t-shirt won't fit, it's two sizes too small
But it smells of you, no I don't miss you at all
And all these little boxes that you left behind
Are empty inside, I'm going out of my mind

We talked about our failings in the garden by the underground
We held on to the railings so hard to keep from falling down
We walked through the park, the day got so dark
And you said it felt like a light had gone out
That we could never switch back on
It's over now, all over now
But I see you everywhere
It's over now, all over now
Your breath, your skin, your hair
And our train just pulled away and I miss you more each day
You're part of the furniture
Part of the furniture
