Split Enz – Stranger Than Fiction lyrics

Stranger than fiction
Larger than life
Full of shades & echoes

It's the story of my life

Just like a picture book
Daddys gone away
Leaving Mummy in her room
With another one on the way
At nights I've heard her screaming
Through the coloured walls

(d-d-d-d-d-d-did you... ???)

Oh please don't leave me alone
Please don't leave me alone

And even her friend the hippyman
With his tarot cards to play
Drowning in his sea of words
Why he never has much to say
And I've seen him standing by the river
Singing to the birds

Just like the mystic says
Be careful of what you say
Talking to himself he needs no one
To help him on his way
Do you?
At nights I've heard him screaming
Through the candle flame

(d-d-d-d-d-d-did you... ???)

Oh please don't leave me alone
Please don't leave me alone
