lyrics

Its the flicker on the television
its the darkness in the hall
its the bottles on the floor smashed and broken
its the twenty missed phone calls

Its the letter she’d just written
its the bullet in the gun
its the will to live no longer in her
its the end of whats to come

——

They got the call on Tuesday
said there’s been a body found
and like the ending of a screenplay
in a dark room in her wedding gown

Weren’t many at the service
just the families of the two
dressed in black and veiled faces
they looked on as loved ones do

…and down she goes

He found the written letter
said she couldn't live no more
without her friend, lover her soldier
who died a hero in the war

Well there’d been a misunderstanding
and he’d just made his way back home
he wanted to surprise her with some roses
but now like him they wilt alone

——

They got the call on Monday
said there’s been a body found
and like the ending of a screenplay
another soldier heaven bound

Found grasping a wrinkled paper
said he’d fallen in the war
they found him lying on the same couch
they found his lover the week before
…and down he goes

Its the flicker of the television
its the darkness in the room
its the dead and wilted flowers in an empty vase
that set the scene and cue the tune
