Wrapping paper in the gutter
Moving slowly as the wind on the sea
Faces calling, waves moving
In your picture on a wall of a house of old times
Can you hear me - can you hear me
Can you hear me - wandering sadly?.
In the city, feeling pretty
Down and out and making love to you on the shore
Ruined buildings, faces empty
In the picture as I gaze ahead and don't see
That they're calling - that they're calling
That they're calling - wandering sadly.
Shattered windows, stairs to nowhere
Hear you calling - hear you calling
Hear you calling - as I wander so sadly.
Wish I knew what you'd done to me
Turned me on to things I never knew
It's all broken, weeds are growing
Wish I was going home to the house by the shore
Where you loved me - where you loved me
Where you loved me - loved me so sadly.
Someday I'll get back, somehow I'll do it
I'll arrive there and you'll be there to meet me
Walk together, tread the weeds down
Kiss again in the picture on the wall
Where I loved you - in the old house
Where I loved you - loved you so well
