The Kings Men 22/10/95

by Chronofus

And don't think I don't know where you are, dancing under a glittering star,

Strobe lights and highlights, scotch & coke gets you through the night,

A different boy every night, trying each one out for size,

But they never see your disguise through the sider web of your lies.

 

You know I see the endless lines, knocking at your door,

The cue goes on for miles and miles, and I see their contented smiles,

And things go to your master plan, to try and destroy this man,

But I don't care, 'cause I can't see after what you've done to me,

Now I'm dead without a heart, and I'll never make a new start.

Well I lose, cause I'm gone, with nothing to comfort me but a song,

But you don't win, don't you see, even though you've destroyed me.

 

Now you're surrounded on all sides by millions of boys who'll never make you cry,

Cause they'll never touch you deep inside, where you go to hide,

Alone in there by yourself, with your heart up on the shelf,

Well they can come, and look and touch, but you know it doesn't amount to much,

So is this mistake of yours, something we both can live with?

'Cause now I'm dead without a heart and I'll never make a new start,

And what of you late at night, in your world is everything alright?

As you lie there in the shadow of your soul while the world around you goes cold,

And all the kings horses and all the kings men will never bring you my love again.

And all the kings horses and all the kings men will never bring you my love again
