Day One

This song is by Flesh for Lulu and appears on the album Plastic Fantastic (1989).

I drew a curtain across your face
Put the lid on this case
I'll never look at you the same
This is what I tell myself

Every day and every night
I rip that curtain down
But nothing there has changed
It's still day one

I put two feet on the ground
And walk to the end of the line
We take what we can get
By way of killing time

I drew a circle around your face
I should have looked some other place
And never looked at it again
This is what I tell myself

Every day and every night
I try to rub that circle out
But nothing comes away
It's still day one

I put two feet on the ground
And walk to the end of the line
We take what we can get
By way of killing time

What can I tell you?
I'm at a dead end
She is a best friend
Says I'm at a loose end

You know where you stand
When it's hand over hand
But there's no beginning
And there is no end to a circle
It's day one, year zero

And I'm in love with nothing again
I sit here on the platform
And I nurse my drunken brain
And the train pulls in the station
And the train pulls out again

It's day one
It's day one
It's still day one
