I was your girl in the world that never was In a town where you never lived. I listened to your band, just like everybody does. You touched me under the iron bridge. But left me on the moors My body bound by chords Whistling your melodies To keep me company In the world that never was As warm as blood As soft as tears Some kids are in the video & some kids disappear From the world that never was I was your whore in the war that never was. Did you bury me? Like an empty time capsule in tattered tartan pajamas? Do you consider this poetry? Because I do, or I don't Because I will, or I won't But I just can't see how I will ever grow up now In the world that never was As warm as blood As soft as tears Some kids are in the video & some kids disappear From the world that never was & the stars shine brighter & brighter The stars shine brighter & brighter The stars shine brighter & brighter Until they go out. & the stars shine brighter & brighter The stars shine brighter & brighter The stars shine brighter & brighter Until they go out. & the darkness around you The darkness surrounds you The darkness has found you all over again. I put out, gave it up In the world that never was

Tell the ghost of Emma Clark I grasp the irony Of haunting a library at night When it's too dark to read Coca-Cola everywhere But not a drop to drink I slept in the kitchen sink But could not pay the water bill How I saved my life How I saved my life By surrendering it to him, To him, To her Tell the ghost of William Floyd The road to hell is paved With the souls that he has saved By taking their music away How I saved my life How I saved my life By surrendering it to him, To him, To her She shook a black tambourine, In my seasick dreams A heart like a lighthouse Took these dark hours away from me She shook a black tambourine In my shipwrecked dreams A heart like an anchor That sank her down to me I'll be tied to the mast of a pirate ship When god's children rejoice 'Cause when I was given the choice I chose to hear the bad news first Then I heard a mermaid singing & that's how I... I heard a mermaid singing & that's how I... That's how I saved my life That's how I... That's how I saved my life That's how I... I heard a mermaid singing & that's how I saved my life.
