This city’s streets are soaked with dreams,
trampled past recognition
no one here treads softly.
People stamp to make their mark:
small, stiletto holes and cracking bones.

I wanted to sit here on a park bench
and waste away to nothing
and suffer like I’d earned you.

Someone asks, are you a model?
I say, I’m a human statue –
Won’t you leave me here to rot?
Now stop, just turn around and walk away
I never wanted you to stay
I never wanted you and

I don’t care where we’re going
I’m in no rush to get there
I fed my ambition to the monsters long ago
And I don’t want to dance with you
It’s not the sort of thing I do
I loved this once but please give me some peace
just give me peace

Things I wish I hadn’t done and
songs I wish had not been sung at certain times
Times I wish weren’t in my brain:
I’d love to listen to those songs with dry eyes again.

I wanted to sit here in the corner
and fade into the shadows
and listen to the words

But someone says it’s time to smile and so I go the extra mile
and I dance until I drop
Now stop, just turn around and walk away
I never wanted you to stay
I never wanted you and

I don’t know where we’re going
I don’t care how we get there
I fed my ambition to the monsters long ago
And I don’t want to talk to you
It’s not the sort of thing I do
I loved you once but please give me some peace
just give me peace, please

Peace, please

I don’t know where we’re going
I don’t care how we get there
I fed my ambition to the monsters long ago
I don’t want to walk with you
you know the things that that leads to
I loved you once but please give me some peace
just give me peace.
