Black Ribbons - Lyrics

What am I gonna do with you?...

HIM
I'll chew through the ropes
That are holding you down
When your beauty is a memory.
I'll still be around
My fabulous past – what good is it now?
As your song floats down
Over the town…

HER
I was a bubble in a spirit level, I was insane
I hung out all strung out in the February rain
To forget all the years I was calling your name
As your song floats down
Over the town…

BOTH
So let's toss out the false, bring in the true
Ring out the old and
Ring in the new, new, new…

HER
New things to care about, new things to hope
I'm gonna steal from the happy songs Ellington wrote
Leave a world in the pocket of my winter coat
As your song floats down
Over the town…
What am I gonna do with you?
I'll tie you up with black ribbons

HIM
The days became weeks, weeks became months
There's so many things I've finished with you
Haven't even begun
Watched as a good thing turned into junk
Now your song floats down
Over the town…

HER
Lola with a kitten in a paper bag
Running up from the subway & into a cab
Whatever she wore she could never look bad
As your song floats down
Over the town…

What am I gonna do with you?
I'll tie you up with black ribbons
