lyrics

one day long ago i went walking,
trekked down a long country road
i didn't know where i was going
but knew how to get there i'm told.

the roads had no pavements and i wore no shoes
i'd painted my face a bright shade of blue
i knew i was going to lose my next fight
so i tried to wake up from this dream.

i got to my destination
there were people in crowds round the ring
i stepped into it and begged you
don't make me do this thing.

you picked me right up by the ankles
you ended the fight there and then
held me up like a trophy,
a champion you put me down on my head and walked away.

later i heard you with your violin
playing along to one of my songs
i stood in the doorway, you turned towards me
like a ghost in a dream

i didn't know you could play, i told you
i can't, you replied, except when it's you
took me into your arms, held me close, held me there
i knew i was dreaming but i didn't care

i had painted my face blue for sushi
stood framed in the doorway, ate it without chopsticks
earlier on i had pissed in a bathtub
as people downstairs held their laughter like glasses
while i painted my face blue for sushi
stood framed in the doorway, ate it without chopsticks
painted my face blue for sushi
for sushi
for sushi
for you.
