lyrics

I met her in the drunken capital
With fever in my blood I thought she looked a bit like God
Though I am not religious
I asked for her forgiveness and her love

We made love in the house where she was born
Hung blankets from the window frames to keep away the dawn
She was a crackle on a whisper
A beam of light that crept under my door

Catherine we were born again in the arms of each other
And I heard that you need a friend
But you’ll have to go alone

We both had trouble living on the earth
I’d been living in her lungs since I first listened to her breath
She begged for me to choke her
She said I was the smoke she was the flame

In her sisters bed she cried when she came
For her it wasn’t pleasure it was always about pain
She was a hook to hang the sky on
She said I was the dice she was the game

Catherine we were born again in the arms of each other
And I heard that you need a friend
But you’ll have to go alone

But honestly there’s nothing that I miss
The 484 to brixton where we shared our final kiss
She was a crackle on a whisper
A beam of light that crept under my door
A beam of light that crept under my door
