lyrics

I loved you because you were a stranger,
and you smiled like the sun had got stuck in your teeth
And you smiled all crooked-like up at me
And I smiled all crooked-like back
I loved you because I didn’t know you
And you would never be mine for to have and to hold
I loved you because you had a lover
I loved you because I had a lover as well,
yes I did, yes I did

But when you sang to me, you flowed seamlessly,
Through your pleasure as well as your pain
But me I am made out of stitches I sewed on my own
In dark stations waiting for the train
And singing for change,

la de da, la de da, la da da da da
m la de da, la de da, la da da da da
la de da, la de da, la da da da da
mmm mmm mm mmm…

I loved you cause we met in a city,
That I’d never been to before,
I loved you cause we met under dim yellow light
On a happenstance night in the park

But when you spoke to me, you swam endlessly
On a string round the ring of the world
And I followed behind getting caught in the twine
That was winding its way round the words, thinking,
My tongue is a curse. My tongue is the worst. My tongue is a curse… the worst

And so silently, we swam endlessly,
on a string round the ring of the park
And when the lights went to sleep it was just you and me
Glowing lucid and blue in the dark

And when you turn to go I’ll be back on my own,
Just the wind pulling me piece by piece as it blows
But I was made out of stitches I sewed on my own
In strange cities I moved to alone,
I moved to alone,

la de da, la de da, la da da da da
m la de da, la de da, la da da da da
la de da, la de da, la da da da da
mmm mmm mm mmm…
la de da, la de da, la da da da da
m la de da, la de da, la da da da da
la de da, la de da, la da da da da
mmm mmm mm mmm…
