​Howl

This song is by The Crookes and appears on the album Soapbox (2014).

Each and every conversation flickers like old film
And you know each assignation lives on
Only in my imagination... or maybe in the mirror.
There's an echo through these streets that half the world's forgot:
"Don't know who I am, but who I'm not"
Please just leave me with my imagination.
I'm talking to the mirror.
Staring at my own reflection - it breaks just like a fever.
And there's no time, only light,
No clocks, but shadows that hide the point when day becomes night.
It's hard to tell with these skies...
I heard the howl, I love you but you keep me down.
Your love'll keep me down.
Your love'll keep me down.
Twenty thousand faceless people rushing to their homes.
Somehow I'm surrounded and still alone.
All I wanna do is sit and watch the world go by,
Count the minds destroyed by wasted time.
Please just leave me with my imagination.
I'm talking to the mirror.
Staring at my own reflection - it breaks just like a fever.
And there's no time, only light,
No clocks, just shadows that hide the point when day becomes night.
It's hard to tell with these skies...
I heard the howl, I love you but you keep me down.
Your love'll keep me down.
Your love'll keep me down.
Your love'll keep me down.
Your love'll keep me down.
