Lyrics

I awoke with your perfume on my pillow,
The sunlight dancing on the softest breeze,
The warm space where you lay still vibrant,
And the burgundy of spilt wine upon ruffled sheets.

And your memory travels freshly through every colour,
And halts to linger in burgundy like none other,
It seems as if you were never here at all.

A shattered glass that held crimson wine slumbers,
Upon the carpet where it stood and fell,
Amidst the discarded cigarettes,
And the ravished and abandoned clothes lying forlorn.

And your memory travels freshly through every colour,
And halts to linger in burgundy like none other,
It seems as if you were never here at all.

And every moment seems just like the last,
Regarding a present wrapped in the past.

And all about me seems slightly colder,
And the world seems to me so much older,
Now that I really need to hold you,
It seems as if you were never here at all.

Now the full flush of day brings cascading light,
Brushing wallpaper where once candlelight danced,
And shadows flickered from entwined souls,
Falling into the depths of an unfurled silk ocean.

And your memory travels freshly through every colour,
And halts to linger in burgundy like none other,
It seems as if you were never here at all.
