lyrics

Flowers in hand and I'm on my way,
With a letter I hand-wrote only yesterday,
Well you'd have been so pleased, I cleaned my car,
The birds sing out into the clear blue sky,
While your headstone reads the words "Here doth lie
The hopes I had for the only one I've ever loved",

'Cos I'm searching B&Q for tubes of cardiac-friendly glue,
Since the coroner's verdict gave your cause of death as,
"Having unrealistic views",
And I contemplate the state in which your departure left my life,
When my back became a place for keeping knives,

'Cos nothing passes much slower than,
The time spent making premature funeral plans,
And you'd have been so pleased with the parma ham at the buffet,
You were cut down in your prime, it's so mean,
Didn't even make it to eighteen,
Just days away from the best days of your life,

'Cos I'm searching B&Q for tubes of cardiac-friendly glue,
Since the coroner's verdict gave your cause of death as,
"Being so able to choose",
And I contemplate the state in which your departure left my life,
When my back became a place for keeping knives,

When you were finally taken away,
The cancer got you in the end,
You wouldn't let me cut it out,
'Cos you told me it was just your friend,
It ate your brain from the inside,
So that real life you couldn't see,
Now if I ever find this glue,
I hope it's "Buy One Get One Free"

'Cos I'm searching B&Q for tubes of cardiac-friendly glue,
But they don't have any left so 'No More Nails' will have to do,

'Cos I'm searching B&Q for tubes of cardiac-friendly glue,
Since the coroner's verdict gave your cause of death as,
"Being unable to refuse",
And I contemplate the state in which your departure left my life,
When my back became a place for keeping knives,
Yes my back became a new place for aiming knives,
But the tube says "solvent-free" so I'll be alright.
