Us?

Since when was this about you and I?

Since when did you decide you didn't want to die?

(Since when did I?)

We are no longer the same person,

A touch of bucks fizz

Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs

On Christmas morning

And a holiday paved with irony

And absent-minded boredom.

Somebody shouts out "Scrooge" but I sit

And watch Tennessee Williams films:

Paradise

And Elysian Fields

Cannot touch me now,

So tell me,

Since when was this about you and I?

We are not the same anymore

Because here am I with Vivien Leigh

And you are still alone.
