lyrics

Every day is a new beginning, sit on your porch and watch the dawn spiral in
I wonder why I'm here and why you see fit to keep me around
And morning comes and with it the birds call out to the breeze as they fly over the neighbourhood
And when you go inside, I know it's time to stop wasting your time

And it was smooth like silk and wet like milk when your hands brushed across my face
And your fingertips slid along my cheeks as they circled 'round the open space
In the grey, grey morning from which I wake
Through the May Day glasses of chardonnay

Through the waning light of the day and all through the afternoon, I watch you
Pacing up and down on the stairs and walking through the hall into the living room
And into the evening you close up the curtains, and lock the door and stay inside
And as you pass by where I sit upon the Chesterfield, I feel your fingers send a shiver down my spine

And it was smooth like silk and wet like milk when your hands moved around inside my clothes
And your fingertips slipped along the straps on my dress to places I don't know
In the fading ghost of the day
In the vague, vague memory of your name

I don't think that you need to say
I don't like myself, I don't like myself
I can't wait 'til I get my chance
To be someone else, to be somewhere else

I like the way that you bring me down, when I thought that I couldn't get lower than this
I love the way I'm pushed to the ground and I can't get up and you leave me with a kiss
In a way I can't remember anything
Yesterday you made a lot of promises
