Before The Poison

This song is by Marianne Faithfull and appears on the album Before The Poison (2005).

Before the poison
I wasn't down
If you'd been there
If you'd been around
I couldn't hear
Couldn't hear a sound
I was floating
Above the ground

Before the poison
I'd lost my fear
Maybe too happy
To even care
Safe in my dreams
Couldn't see the fall
Coming on, coming from nowhere
My name to call

No more to say
Nothing's coming my way
No you, no me
No more, how can it be?
Nowhere to run
Out of nowhere, poison
That is the end
What's left for you, my friend?

Before the poison
I'd laugh out loud
I'd see your face
In any crowd
But speak softly
Without fear
Hold on to me
Hold me near

No more to say
Nothing's coming my way
No you, no me
No more, how can it be?
Nowhere to run
Out of nowhere, poison
That is the end
What's left for you, my friend?
What's left for you, my friend?
What's left for you, my friend?
What's left for you?
