She stares into the mirror, youth fading with the sun
The hollows in her face like wishing wells
Scarlet as a paper-cut, and jewelled as the Orion,
She'd never worn that jewellery as a girl.

She says 'the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is Love.'

He stares into the river, heart falling to the dri"
An argument of cars moving full steam behind
Blood-shoot as a baby, and sulking like a valley
Fishing in reflections, killing time

He says 'the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is Love.'

It's the bath that's getting cold
While you're frozen to your bed
The milk that's going rancid on the table
The panic in the evening
The photos in the dustbin
The pointless items we forgot to label.
It's the perfume on her wrists
That stinks of easy Birthdays
The spare keys like asbestos on the side
It's the cross around his neck,
For luck and not for honour,
Like a diamond on the knuckle
On a newly married bride.

She says 'the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is Love.'

He says 'the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is Love.'

And I know the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is Love.
