From the recording Painkiller CD Wavs 44.1 16 bit
It's cold outside and the paint's peeling off of my walls.
There's a man outside in a long coat, grey hat, smoking a cigarette.
Now the light fades out, and I'm wondering what I'm doing in a room like this.
There's a knock on the door and just for a second I thought I remembered you
So now I'm alone.
Now I can think for myself about little deals and issues
and things that I just don't understand.
Like a white lie that night or a slight touch at times.
I don't think it meant anything to you.
So I open the door.
It's the friend that I left in the hallway
"Please sit down."
A candle lit a shadow on a wall near the bed.
You know I hate to ask but are friends electric?
Only mine's broke down and now I've no one to love.
So I find out your reason for the phone calls and smiles and
it hurts and I'm lonely and I should never have tried.
And I missed you tonight, so it's time to leave.
You see it meant everything to me.
