Bill Bailey Love Song Lyrics
I was alone, my heart was cold, it was a stone
My soul was lonely like a stone there was no moss.
And when I danced, I danced alone
But then I did not dance, because I was alone, so I did not dance.
I shuffled through life invisible to all the happy couples
Who would mock me with their merry laughter - ha ha ha. The only sound I heard in my lonely silent world was the rusty hammer of my heart, nailing at the hatrid of my soul...
But then you came... And my life was turned upside down.
You showed me the beauty of the things that I had never seen like
The snowflake that melts on the eyelash of a startled deer.
Or the painting of a dog that wears a deerstalker and smokes a pipe that made you laugh so heartily, but I had previously thought was rubbish.
Or the duck that lands so clumsily on the frozen pond in Winter, but the intoxicating power of our love transforms this simple act into an anthropomorphic drama.
Where Mr Duck is embarrassed and the other ducks are laughing.
Quack, quack, quack.
And then you left.
And I died a thousand deaths and I will die a thousand more.
And I thought you were an angel but you turned out to be a w____.
And everything has turned to dust and everything is infected with a plague - Why did you have to sleep with Craig?
'Oh, he's so sensitive, he's got a tattoo'
Yeah, carving your name with a compass on my forehead was not enough for you!
The snowflake on the eye of the deer has turned to pus that oozes from an open wound...
The deer now blinded stumbles into a ravine. The duck lays shredded in a pancake, soaking in the hoisin of your lies.
The dog has moved from a pipe to 60 cigarettes a day and coughs his life away in the cold neon research lab of your betrayal. Of your betrayal.
