Everything comes and goes marked by lovers and styles of clothes
Things that you held high and told yourself were true
Lost or changin' as the days come down to you
Down to you, constant stranger, you're a kind person
You're a cold person too, it's down to you

Go down to the pick up station craving warmth and beauty
You settle for less than fascination
Few drinks later you're not so choosy
And the closing lights strip off the shadows
On this strange new flesh you've found
Clutching the night to you like a fig leaf
You hurry, to the blackness and the blankets
To lay down an impression and your loneliness

In the morning there are lovers in the street they look so high
You brush against a stranger and you both apologize
Old friends seem indifferent you must have brought that on
Old bonds have broken down, love is gone, ooh, love is gone
Written on your spirit this sad song, love is gone

Everythin' comes and goes, pleasure moves on too early
And trouble leaves too slow, just when you're thinkin'
You've finally got it made bad news comes knockin'
At your garden gate, knockin' for you
Constant stranger, you're a brute, you're an angel
You can crawl, you can fly too, it's down to you
It all comes down to you
