about

Along with Weather Send Me Home, this is a real favourite. Increasing in intensity in both musical and lyrical terms, the song describes in detail the protagonist's arrival back home as he walks sowly up the stairs and wonders at the clues along the way.
It builds and builds to a violently ominous conclusion that leaves plenty of room in the imagination for what happened next. What would you do?

lyrics

Keys inside the door, my hand trying the handle
Piercing my thoughts, all my fears, all my fears
Why's he here? Why's he here?

The door flings open wide, I walk in slowly
His wallet's on the side, it's like you only
Wake to slowly break my heart

Racing up the stairs and I can hear you panting
Completely unaware that I'm home, that I'm home

I wait outside the door, trying to find the courage
The girl that I adore, as she moans, as he groans

And a bomb shreds my world as a tongue threads my girl
Same sounds from his touch
Well I guess that I didn't mean much

I burst into the room, shouting without fear
It all happened too soon, a mistake, a mistake

Try to close my eyes, it's like we're slow motion
Hurtling inside, it's too late, it's too late

What happened next, I've tried to fade out
And I reject any thought, any guilt
Who am I now? Without you I am nothing
Someone had to pay...
