WORDS

DRIVING A NAIL

You’re a better man than I could be, girl.

You’re a certain genius far as I can see, girl.

You’ve got the right look. You choose the right words.

You’ve got the right hook. Gliding like a bluebird.

 

And it’s all clear. Clear as those false tears.

 

There’s no end here. It’s like driving a nail again and again.

It’s like ice here. They tell you go quietly, but you know you never will.

 

I can tell you what you want to here. 

I’m so frightened, but it’s you that I fear.

It’s just like falling a hundred miles down, 

and never never hitting the ground.

 

So I wait here. Here in suspension.

 

There’s no end here. It’s like driving a nail again and again.

It’s like ice here. They tell you go quietly, but you know you never will.

 

I’m just killing time while you live this way.

Then I kid myself that your hands feel the same.

I remember who I put my faith in.

Someone who’d be there. But you’ve never been.

 

And the wheel spins round so silent.

 

There’s no end here. It’s like driving a nail again and again.

It’s like ice here. They tell you go quietly, but you know you never will.

There’s no end here. It’s like driving a nail again and again.

It’s like ice here. They tell you go quietly, but you know you never will.
