Lyrics

I stood there all in black, with my face painted white
Noticing the frame that fit around you
I said what I didn’t mean, I left without being seen
Miming all the while the wall between us

Then you leaned in for a kiss
But you couldn’t get past that which separated us
You wore my summer dress
You looked like a photograph of happiness

You said:
“Come a little closer, I promise I won’t bite.”
I knew you didn’t want to be alone.
Your halo was glowing when I visited you that night
But you sounded so defeated on the phone.

I stood among the crowd, feeling like a ghost
Remembering a time when we were strangers
I laughed the memory off, but love is like a cough
Even a small one can’t be concealed

Then you leaned in for a kiss
But you couldn’t get past that which separated us
You wore my summer dress
You looked like a photograph of happiness

You said:
“Come a little closer, I promise I won’t bite.”
I knew you didn’t want to be alone.
Your halo was glowing when I visited you that night
But you sounded so defeated on the phone.

You sounded so defeated on the phone
You sounded so defeated on the phone
You sounded so defeated on the phone.
