She stares into the mirror
Youth fading with the sun
The hollows in her face
Like wishing wells
Scarlet as a papercut
And jewelled as the Orion
She'd never worn that jewellery as a girl

She says 'the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is love'

He stares into the river
Heart falling to the drift
An argument of cars
Moving full steam behind
Blood-shot as a baby
And sulking like a valley
Fishing in reflections, killing time

He says 'the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is love'

It's the bath that's getting cold while you're frozen to your bed
The milk that's going rancid on the table
The panic in the evening, the photos in the dustbin, the pointless items we forgot to label
It's the perfume on her wrist, that stinks of easy birthdays
The spare keys like asbestos on the side
It's the cross around his neck, for luck and not for honour
Like diamond over knuckle on a newly married bride

She says 'the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is love'

He says 'the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is love'

I know the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is love
