Cedars Of Lebanon

  • Yesterday I spent asleep
    Woke up in my clothes in a dirty heap
    Spent the night trying to make a deadline
    Squeezing complicated lives into a simple headline

    I have your face here in an old Polaroid
    Tidying the children's clothes and toys
    You're smiling back at me, I took the photo from the fridge
    Can't remember what then we did

    I haven't been with a woman, it feels like for years
    Thought of you the whole time, your salty tears
    This shitty world sometimes produces a rose
    The scent of it lingers and then it just goes

    Return the call to home

    The worst of us are a long drawn out confession
    The best of us are geniuses of compression
    You say you're not going to leave the truth alone
    I?m here cos I don't want to go home

    Child drinking dirty water from the river bank
    Soldier brings oranges he got out from a tank
    I'm waiting on the waiter, he's taking a while to come
    Watching the sun go down on Lebanon

    Return the call to home

    Now I've got a head like a lit cigarette
    Unholy clouds reflecting in a minaret
    You're so high above me, higher than everyone
    Where are you in the Cedars of Lebanon?

    Choose your enemies carefully cos they will define you
    Make them interesting cos in some ways they will mind you
    They're not there in the beginning but when your story ends
    Gonna last with you longer than your friend
