lyrics

It seems I can still see you
Coming up the drive
In the fading October sun
In another life
If you could play me backwards
The pictures you would see
Frozen flowers in your backyard
They would look nothing like me


You never said you loved me
As you were lying on my bed
Drinking old Irish whiskey
And playing games with my head


It seems I can still see your
Face through that screen door
And my books and magazines
All scattered on the floor
I’m still up there on Mulholland
I still breathe the air I swear
You might not see me anymore
But I am still there


You never said you loved me
As you were lying on my bed
Drinking old Irish whiskey
And playing games with my head


If you could play me backwards
See pain you will never feel
Another loner moving onwards
Another cut I know will heal
