lyrics

Please, if you’re listening, don’t go thinking that I really followed you down there
Or that I have closed myself down to love and to life
Or that I have become paralysed
I’m functioning perfectly and all that that implies

But I still I wish I felt your head on my shoulder
And I still wish I felt your breath in the night
However slight
An opportunity
There may be
For love

There’s always been a Cheshire cat within me
That with a grin and to my chagrin will spin
An imaginary web
Catching the dreams that there might have been between us
He’s so bloody serious
Unlike me
I’m really a lot of fun
Fun, fun, fun

But I still I wish I felt your head on my shoulder
And still I wish I felt your breath in the night
However slight
An opportunity
There may be
For love

Your face invades my waking hours
And in half-remembered dreams it’s your cigarette in silhouette I see
You are my green light now
So vivid yet so very far away
So very far away
Far away
