The only unforgivable thing
Hauls itself out of bed
Looks over my shoulder
At the Bloodyenglishweather
The only unforgivable thing
Waits for me in the corner of the room
Laughs as I clean my teeth
Laughs as I rub at my eyes

The only unforgivable thing
Is curled up in the wardrobe with my clothes
Sticks like chicken bones in my throat
Ruins the ritual Sunday lunchtimes

The only unforgivable thing
Watches itself with me
Every night on the tv
Follows me across the park
As I go out walking in the dark
Waits for me in the kitchen cupboards

The only unforgivable thing
The only unforgivable thing

We will close down
Hide in the corner of the
Lost and Found
For to live without the ground
Is so unsound
Gravity would only pull us down

Will no one help the boys
Who exist only as voices?

I have lost the stars and the sky
It was so that I could keep the earth
So now I'm found
Beyond the rocket-burst among the burned out fireworks
In No-vember

The only unforgivable thing
Is comfortable in it's own skin
Whispers "Why did you do this to me?"
'til it's just about all
Just about all I can see

The only unforgivable thing
The only unforgivable thing
The only unforgivable thing

I did..
I did..
You did.. You did.. You did..
We did..
