Tense Conversation

I thought she could have been on the train that crashed

But she wasn’t and I know because like a fool I phoned her up

I had nothing to say I hadn’t said a thousand times

 

Oh my god what a tense conversation

 

She would say she loved me qualified with the word tonight

Paranoid as usual I could not take it for the good that it was

So I brought up the subject one saturday night

 

Oh my god what a tense conversation

 

It’s time time time time that we’re losing

It’s time time time time that we’re losing

But day after day I say ...

 

She doesn’t want anybody but all I can see is that she doesn’t want me


If she wanted she wanted she wanted . . .

If she wanted anyone it ought to be me

If she wanted anyone that man should be me

If she wanted anyone maybe I would be lucky like Kylie so lucky

 

As all things must pass so this did as well

But only as the eye can see, inside it went on and on

In ten thousand years or more it will be the same nothing will have changed

 

Oh my god what a tense conversation


I call her she answers I’m tongue tied and foolish

A tense conversation is all I can hold

But she’s far away  I’m just a memory and our love is simply a story I’ve told
