When we walked the streets together
All the faces seemed to smile back
And now the pavements have nothing to offer
And all the faces seem to need a slap

Theres an unfamiliar grip on an unfamiliar handkerchief
Attending to the tears on cheeks I wouldnt notice
With you no matter how vicious the grief
Her expression was damp and crooked
Grabs onto my throat and wont let go

Wont let go
Wont let go
Wont let go

Save me from the secateurs
Ill pretend I didnt hear
Cant you see Im a ghost in the wrong coat
Biting butter and crumbs?

There's a handsome maverick
You don't talk about to keep me calm
And I can't help it if I create diversion
That pulls you back onto his arm

Please don't tell me, you don't have to, darling I can sense
That he painted you a gushing sunset
And slayed angry panthers in your defense
And he stands separate and ever deadly
Clings onto my throat and won't let go

Wont let go
Wont let go
Wont let go

Save me from the secateurs
Ill pretend I didnt hear
Cant you see Im a ghost in the wrong coat
Biting butter and crumbs?

Save me from the secateurs
Ill pretend I didnt hear
Cant you see Im a ghost in the wrong coat
Biting butter and crumbs?
