Never Known

The Durutti Column

/ Never Known /

I cry in my sleep
Sometimes you stay
Sometimes you stay
You never know why
Please say my name
Don’t turn away

The pain is black
The pain is bright
The pain is black
The pain is bright
The pain is bright

Then I awake
And in the half light
Watching my movements
Through half closed eyes
You’re touching me
As a priest loves pornography
We played beneath the patterns
Don’t turn away

Kissed by the years
Caresses of time
Marking the lines
The lines of expression
The patterns of place
The patterns of youth
The patterns of love
Don’t turn away
Say my name
Say my name
