lyrics

Here
From a fireplace
And the stale cocktails
To the one who fails

There
And I know the way
You go fall astray
When the rent’s not paid

Now you have me in your mirror
And I’m standing like a ghost
Through the jalousies
The wind it blows
And through all these strange illusions
I can hear it like a song
In your jealousies
The window knows

Framed
Like a forgery
And how much you pay
It is never real

Jailed
It’s the bars I see
In these jealousies
My fate I’ll be

Now you have me in your mirror
And I’m standing like a ghost
Through the jalousies
The wind it blows
And through all these strange illusions
I can hear it like a song
In your jealousies
The window froze

Now you have me in your mirror
And I’m standing like a ghost
Through the jalousies
The wind it blows
And through all these strange illusions
I can hear it like a song
In your jealousies
The window froze

Now you have me in your mirror
And I’m standing like a thief
Through the jalousies
The falling leaves
And through all these strange illusions
I can feel it like dream
In your jealousies
I’m gone and been
