Out On The Edge Again

This song is by Richard Clapton and appears on the album Goodbye Tiger (1977).

The Countess sits there dressed up
In the shadows of her dreams
And her eyes are lookin' everywhere
But never look at me
And I should be the sucker
Who waits upon her whims
But she flicks her writ so gracefully
As she notches up her sins

I'm sinkin' so low, I said hello
I used to be one of your friends
I just got back from the South Row
And I'm out on the edge again

Sometimes I sit in the cinema
With my knees under my chin
And I drift away and watch the same part
Over and over again
The streets are so full of mysterious women
I watch them through the hole in the fence
They walk by with the sun in their eyes
And I'm out on the edge again
