Robyn Hitchcock – I'm Only You lyrics

Said I'm a willow bending in your mind
I'm a mirror cracked from side to side
I'm a snow-covered mountain in an empty room
I'm a house that burns down every night for you
Said I'm a doorway leading to the dark
I'm a liquid you're dissolving in
I'm a policeman working in an empty house
I'm a distant steeple on a long-deserted plain
Sometimes when I'm lonely, baby, then I'm only you
Said I'm a pattern on a china bowl
I'm a memory engraved upon your soul
I'm a prison cell without a door
I'm a finger drawing on a frosty window pane
Sometimes when I'm lonely, baby, then I'm only you
Sometimes when I'm lonely, baby, then I'm only you
