Wrapping Paper


Wrapping paper in the gutter

Moving slowly as the wind on the sea

(faces calling waves moving)

In your picture on a wall of a house of old times

(can you hear me) can you hear me

(can you hear me) wandering sadly

In the city feeling pretty

Down and out and making love to you on the shore

(ruined buildings faces empty)

In the picture as i gaze ahead and don't see

(that they're calling) that they're calling

(that they're calling) wandering sadly


Shattered windows stairs to nowhere


(hear you calling) hear you calling

(hear you calling) as i wander so sadly

Wish i knew what you'd done to me;

Turned me on to things i never knew

It's all broken weeds are growing


Wish i was going home to the house by the shore


(where you loved me) where you loved me

(where you loved me) loved me so sadly


Someday i'll get back somehow i'll do it

I'll arrive there and you'll be there to meet me

(walk together tread the weeds down)

Kiss again in the picture on the wall


(where i loved you) in the old house
