lyrics

Waterloo

Now you change
My point of view
Go from dual gaze
To solo view

McCartney or Lennon?
Mould or Hart?
I refuse to make that choice
While everything falls apart

And my world is smaller now
I can’t stand I’m falling down

Bleeding soles, wagon trains
Staggering columns, wounded wains
Lamentations for the dead
Every surface painted red

Waterloo! Waterloo!

Now it’s in those red-rimmed eyes
Shattered landscapes, bloody skies
There I’m framed, tortured silhouette
Pure embodiment of regret

There’s a scenic overlook
Where I took you that day

Wildflowers flourish there
And the elk always graze

Got empty pockets and a hanging head
Nervous tics and licks and limbs lined with lead
Stigmata hands and feet but they never bleed
A vulture hovering, waiting to feed
I don’t know, but I’ve heard tell
I’m on the road, the road to hell
Should I genuflect cuz I’m at the end?
Or take a running leap and see about this God they claim?

I took a knee and your hands in mine
And I offered my best
And you stood there looking so divine
I asked, and you said, “Yes”

This is an elegy for my life
This is an elegy for my wife
This is an elegy
An elegy
