Your Beautiful Face - Steve Hogarth/Richard Barbieri

I remember your beautiful face

 

How it sped up clocks

 

Stopped hearts

 

And set pulses racing

 

I remember your beautiful face

 

You run your toe upwards along my shin under the table

 

Playfully little fires panic and dilemmas

 

Battle-bright

 

But there was steel behind your eyes

 

Forged from cunning in your heart

 

In your heart

 

And dark ambition in your mind

 

I remember your beautiful face

 

Appearing suddenly in my bedroom in the afternoon

 

As the boy inside me hurried to tear off your clothes

 

Whilst the man inside me tore over the fields after showing you

 

Politely to the door

 

You had the measure of your beautiful face

 

A perfect tool for getting what you want

 

You had the measure of your beautiful face

 

And you wanted so much didn't you babe

 

I had the measure of your beautiful face

 

I knew you were trouble

 

You were trouble

 

It takes one to know one

 

But I was not immune

 

And I slipped myself away just in time

 

As the jackboot slammed down

 

Takes one to know me

 

Takes one to know me

 

Your beautiful face has aged

 

Lost it's power

 

You must have known it wouldn't last forever

 

I see it in your daughter

 

She's a softer soul

 

I guess it's not the weapon that does the damage

 

But in who's hands it rests

 

The world's a safer place without

 

Your beautiful face
