I’ll be outside your garden this Christmas
Circle the sun in an ellipse
I will be outside your garden like last Christmas
Circling the sun

The barbeque will be in full swing
Everybody will be sweating
Love’s young dream, eating meat killed by cuddling
But not for every rule does god grant an exemption
And the pain will give purpose

I guess you let me off, quite gently
Long may you lament, only gently
And though the card should never reach the pen
Blank cards might cause offence
Confessions wet and wittering
Lovely lines left littering
Wiped divine of any animal intention
And the plain will give all to the privileged
And you melt the marrow in my bones

The barbeque is still on full heat
Sausages cremating
This monologue is saying nothing new and I’ve got to tell you:

That your feelings don’t make much sense
You feel nothing, non-sense!
So when love’s young dream runs to seed
I’ll be there in a halo of bees (they’re wasps of German ancestry)
Because you melt the marrow in my bones

Your feelings don’t make much sense
You feel nothing, non-sense!
‘cause you made my life worth living
And you left life worth leaving
Well kind of

You make my life worth living, you make my life worth living
You make my life…
