From The Late Album

IN A DARK ROOM
WHERE YOU SHOT YOUR LAST ROLL
COLOR BLURS
HONEY CAN'T YOU SEE
HOW YOU DROVE ME FROM YOUR DARK ROOM
INTO HERS
SO LITTLE TRAGEDY WE HAVE REHEARSED
EVERY MORNING I WAKE UP THERE FEELING WORSE
BUT IT'S ENDING SOON
LOVE WON'T LAST THE AFTERNOON

IN A STRANGE BED
WHERE I'M LAID OUT LIKE A MAN
IN A HEARSE
AND SHE COMES TO ME
'CAUSE SHE BELIEVES IT'S NOT TOO LATE FOR A NURSE
WHILE SHE'S LICKING ON MY WOUNDS I DARE NOT MOVE
LIKE THERE'S STILL SOME OLD FIDELITY TO PROVE
OR SOMETHING MORE TO RUIN
LOVE WON'T LAST THE AFTERNOON

O BUT PLEASE DON'T WAKE ME YET
FROM MY BAD LITTLE DREAM
I'M A KING WITH ALL MY PROPHETS
BUT I DON'T WANT TO GO TO SLEEP
'CAUSE WHEN I TELL THEM WHAT I SEE
THEY'RE GONNA TELL ME WHAT IT MEANS
AND I DON'T WANT TO KNOW
HOW YOU DO ON YOUR OWN

IN THE BACK OF SOME CAR
WILL YOU DROP ME DOWN THE ROAD A HUNDRED BLOCKS OR SO
AND PLEASE FORGIVE ME
I HAVEN'T WELCOMED ANY MORNING
SINCE I LEFT HER HOME
WHEN YOU TAKE A FACE AND HEAD INTO THE DAY
AND FROM A SPEEDING WINDOW WATCH THE SKY TURN GREY
AND HIDE THE MOON
LOVE WON'T LAST THE AFTERNOON
