I have fled so far
I cannot look back
And I cannot see
The place whence I came
And a handful of genius
Can go a long way
If you believe in romance

AND A HANDFUL OF GENIUS
CAN GO A LONG WAY
IF YOU BELIEVE IN ROMANCE

(Remember that, my love)

The wine will never do you harm
Just don't mix it with those pills you take
Don;t do that again
I nearly
HAD A HEART ATTACK
When I saw you slumped in your chair
And after three hours you were a little more alive
Or at least alive enough to scratch your name into my arm
With a broken razor-blade
I'll never forget the pain
Because I knew I'd look upon that with regret
I didn't really love you because
I didn't matter much

(I didn't matter much, now did I?)

But still I feel those fractured letters with a sense of love
Because DEAR GOD
You mattered to me
When I thought that love was something real
And I was young
And you were young
And time was all
We had.
