Paul McDermott – Stripped lyrics

Ba di da di da di da da da
Ba di da di da di da di da da da dum
Ba di da di da di da da da
Ba di da di da di da di da da da dum

I have been stripped of a layer of meaning, I
Fell through the floor watched you rise through the ceiling
She's so high, higher than thought can think
A mere sprite, like one of the nubilate
So hold tight, she radiates light from her
Jokes, it's what men prefer
They need the centre of things
The centre of things

I watched them packing up all Sunday morning
The day of the fourth and they fled without warning
It's so bright, the sun almost burns your eyes
A cruel fight, I feel I can sympathise
Famine, it pours over boiling words
It's more than we deserve
Love is a beautiful curse
A beautiful curse

Ba di da di da di da da da
Ba di da di da di da di da da da dum

She said I'm stained like a girl from the bowery
I pay my respects to her hourly
I'm just so clumsy and circumspect
I never know what it meant
Perhaps it was heaven sent
She's so high, this kitten on gasoline
And codeine, fuelled by her medicine
She lies back. "Handsome." she says again,
"You've always been my friend."
Lord it's the loveliest day
The loveliest day

Ba di da di da di da da da
Ba di da di da di da di da da da dum
Ba di da di da di da da da
Ba di da di da di da di da da da dum

I have been stripped of a layer of meaning, I
Fell through the floor watched you fly through the ceiling
And I find, you're finer than porcelain
Or bromine on silver gelatine
In blue sky, she's carried by seraphim
Aptly named valium
Into the arms of the night
The arms of the night

Ba di da di da di da da da
Ba di da di da di da di da da da dum
Ba di da di da di da da da
Ba di da di da di da di da da da dum
