Brazil Candles (Cast Long Shadows) Lyrics


They say you died in your sleep From a poison vapour leak in 1917 You were only 23 The time I saw you last was in a piece of glass When you moved across the room And I smelled your cheap perfume Late....the candles cast long shadows No matter where you are Shiver! In the apartment where I live And the death you relive Is too close to my bed And replays in my head You are the ghost in the machine You are the ghost in my routine And I find you quite obscene Because the way you make me fiend Late...the candles cast long shadows No matter where you are I don't know what to do Because your body I see through But I could not see your face Though I saw your breath on the mirror And there's one thing you should know It's that I fell for you long ago And everything that I do begins and ends with you Late...The candles cast long shadows No matter where you are The candles cast long shadows Adelaide?
