Look outside your window – the darkest sky you ever saw

And here am I, and there you are, and that’s all


When you need someone, really need someone

When you need someone

The night has no pity


You dream of Waterloo

As the lightning forks in two


I see your eyes and they’re still the same

The body blows absorbed in arcs of bitter pain


Storm cloud Katharine

Storm cloud Katharine


It’s all mapped out in relief like a skin of plaque on teeth

And so tense in here you can taste it; a power vacuum of sex


If you need someone

Not just anyone

If you need someone – don’t search in the city


Written longhand shaped in braille

You can smell it so you want it, your holy grail


And I see your eyes

And they show no fear

Though rocketman still loses through the never changing years


I see your eyes

And they’re still the same

The body blows absorbed in arcs of bitter pain


Storm cloud Katharine

Storm cloud Katharine


She says I’d rather walk away from you than hurt you with a word

Or a smile or a gesture that you may have misheard

And took as meaning something other than what I could do

What I don’t have if I don’t have you!


When you need someone don’t search in the city


You hauled the devils back down onto multitrack


And I see your eyes, they’re still the same

The bodyblows absorbed in arcs of bitter pain

Storm cloud Katharine

Storm cloud Katharine

I call her


Storm cloud Katharine

Storm cloud Katharine
