  The mind has so many pictures
  Why can't I sleep with my eyes open?
  The mind has so many memories
  Can you remember what it looks like when I cry?

  I'm trying, trying to tell you
  All that I can in a sweet and velvet tongue
  But no words ever could sell you
  Sell you on me after all that I have done

  I'm only the one you love
  Am I only the one you love?

  The Lady Gloom and her hornets
  Circling round, is now before us
  The screaming's done without moving
  One little move and for sure you will be stung

  I'm singing "Oh, Jerusalem, oh, Jerusalem
  See what he's picked up in the park"
  Let's fuck this awful art party
  Want you to make love to me and only to me in the dark

  I'm only the one you love
  Am I only the one you love?

  We've traded in our snap shots
  We're going through the motions
  Into the view
  I'm leaving you
  Down Conduit Avenue
  Into the early morning
  Into the early morning

  The one I love
  Are you only the one I love?
