Just give me a second darling to clear my head
Just put down those scissors baby on the single bed
The sand in the hour glass is running low
I came through thunder the cold wind the rain and the snow
To find you awake by your windowsill
A sight for sore eyes and a view to kill

I broke down in horror at you standing there
The glow from the moon shone through cracks in your hair
I shouted with passion 'I LOVE YOU SO MUCH'
But feeling my skin it was cold to the touch
You whispered where are you
I questioned in doubt
But soon realised you were talking to god now

You got blood on your hands
And I know it's mine
I just need more time
So get off your low
Let's dance like we used to
But there's a light in the distance
Waiting for me, I will wait for you
So get off your low
Let's kiss like we used to

I looked in the mirror but something was wrong
I saw you behind but my reflection was gone
There was smoke in the fireplace as white as the snow
A voice then came gently 'Now it's time to go'
That record you played
As you beg for forgiveness
'Don't touch me' I screamed
I've got unfinished business

You got blood on your hands
And I know it's mine
I just need more time
So get off your low
Let's dance like we used to
But there's a light in the distance
Waiting for me, I will wait for you
So get off your low
Let's kiss like we used to

You got blood on your hands
And I know it's mine
I just need more time
So get off your low
Let's dance like we used to
But there's a light in the distance
Waiting for me, I will wait for you
So get off your low
Let's kiss like we used to
