Marlene On The Wall

Text písně Marlene On The Wall

Even if I am in love with you
All this to say, what's it to you?
Observe the blood, the rose tattoo
Of the fingerprints on me from you


Other evidence has shown
That you and I are still alone
We skirt around the danger zone
And don't talk about it later


Marlene watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all
As the records the rise and fall
Of every soldier passing


But the only soldier now is me
I'm fighting things I cannot see
I think it's called my destiny
That I am changing


Marlene on the wall


I walk to your house in the afternoon
By the butcher's shop with the sawdust strewn
"Don't give away the goods too soon"
Is what she might have told me


And I tried so hard to resist
When you held me in your handsome fist
And reminded me of the night we kissed
And of why I should be leaving


Marlene watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all
As the records the rise and fall
Of every man who's been here


But the only one here now is me
I'm fighting things I cannot see
I think it's called my destiny
That I am changing


Marlene on the wall
