The water, it lied between us it danced between us
You told your sister who I was
And I swear I crossed her on my way to tell you
Between the lines, I didn't have it in me
To spill the heart of another
I was such a lousy lover, you told me loud and clear

My dear you were always there
No you had never gone away
My darling you're always there
But you were never here to stay

Met again on Hallowe'en, you told me all the things you'd seen
Door to door we showed anonymous faces
What we knew too well to actually say it
So beat around the prickly bush with nails to pull and dials to push
And love to make and loads of mush
And vows to break and loads of bullshit, well I believed them

For all the love we spoiled with fear
For all the sheets we soiled this year
You said never split the difference no matter what
No matter who was breaking
So bring the wine, I'll meet you in the kitchen
You can pull my hair back, I'll cut the onions
Baby pull my hair back, they'll take the blame for all my tears
