Again and again

 

At first your bodies are parting

You’re alone in the glare of headlights

You hear every time you breathe

As a piece of tearing fabric

And that continues again and again

It’s just the beginning all right, all right…

 

The next moment the wind rages

The hours stretch out as weeks

You find yourself alone sitting on the floor

Jumping at every car door noise

And that continues again and again

It’s just the beginning all right, all right…

 

Something has just fallen

On the blades of your floor

It is always the same movie playing

You’re alone deep down in space

You have nobody in front…

 

The same night as the night before

The same places twice too big

You move forward as in corridors

You manage to avoid mirrors

But that continues again and again

It’s just the beginning all right, all right…

 

Something has just fallen

On the blades of your floor

It is always the same movie playing

You’re alone deep down in space

You have nobody in front…

 

You should manage to speak about it into the past tense

You should manage not to think about it

You should forget him all day long

Tell yourself he’s on the other side of the Pole

Mainly tell yourself he will not return

And it makes the flying birds laugh

Flying away birds

 

You count the chances that remain,

A bit of his perfume on your jacket

You must have confuse the lights

Of a star and a streetlight

But that continues again and again

It’s just the beginning all right, all right…

 

There are couples breaking up

 

On the blades of your ceiling

 

It is always the same movie playing

 

You’re alone deep down in space

 

You have nobody in front …nobody…
