Holte End Hotel

Like Jesus through the looking glass

To Geraldine I make this pass

Turn off the lights and come to bed

Forget all the dreadful things I've said

(I've said them all before for sure

To other girls, no less demure).

Tie my shoe lace help me walk

But this time please don't make me talk

There are things I dare not say

Of who I love and in what way

But Geraldine accepts me mute

For silence is a stronger suit.

The leaves have fallen soon will snow

On Geraldine and all those below

The passing years leave vapour trails

Or silver patterns like those of snails

I was quite sure when we passed here

But rain left sky and paving clear.

Love is such a fractured thing

Its splinters slither in our skin

We will never feel complete

With time we always will compete

These moments mirrored in your eyes

Will stay with me till this body dies.

So stay with me till this body dies

Stay with me till this body dies

This body dies.
