lyrics

I don't know, where it all went wrong.
There must have been a sign, must have been a song,
Must have been a turn in our little dance that I missed.
And you once told me that winter would come,
cold and spite would see us both undone.
I told you then, I loved the snow, I still do.

Bring me another glass of gin.
Lets see the new year in.
Tell each other lies before the sunrise and pass the new year in sin.

I don't mean it when I say we're through,
Your eyes don't say it, when I'm mean to you.
I forgive you for all the things I've done in your name.
And sex might raise its ugly head,
but you were always so beautiful in bed.
One more time before the clock strikes 12 to dull the pain.

Bring me another glass of gin.
Lets see the new year in.
Tell each other lies before the sunrise and pass the new year in sin.

And in the morning's scalpeled grin
I see the shimmer of your snowfall skin
Ice and lime and the passage of time, it's all gone.
And everything is frozen, everything is still
Everything is broken by our solid will
Last night's fire and consuming desire burnt out.
