Nick performed this for the Italian film Mojo, along with Gallon Drunk and it is available on a CD called Soho.


Now it begins, now that you're gone
Needles and pins, twilight till dawn
Watching that clock till you return
And lighting that torch and watching it burn


Now it begins, day after day
This is my life ticking away
Waiting to hear footsteps that say:
Love will appear and this time will stay


Each time you go
I try to pretend
It's over at last
This time the big hurt will end


Now it begins, now that you're gone
Needles and pins, twilight till dawn
So if you don't come back again
I wonder when, oh when will it end?
The big hurt (repeat)
