It was a fine idea in autumn
On the palest afternoons
Parallelograms of sunshine fell across the room

A little distraction, and you're the one
It's a lonely, lonely, lonely night

And I know you hate to state the obvious
But the houses round here
Hold jumble sales and joblessness

A funeral pace down a favourite street
