lyrics

I’m immortalised in brass
My head’s decapitated, placed behind a glass
Thousands of people pass me by
They write poetry as if they knew me well
Oh, where the hell did that come from!

There is love in you my lonely Capulet
By other name would smell as sweet
But I can’t hear a word you said
There is warmth in every frozen cigarette
Cause the music in here makes me feel so sad
It just reminds me of my youth

I’m immortalised in print
On page 44 of Closer magazine
Sunbathing topless on a beach
And when all is said and done i’ll disappear
Just like the setting of the sun

There is love in you my Marie Antoinette
I needn’t even say a word
My little ladybird you know me well
There is love in every terraced maisonette
Where the evenings last for days among
A thousand glowing sunday TV sets
