Intensive Care

Back to Album listing


There were a few and you were one
Who bore his double standard along
Who gathered round him in the night
Like moths around a light
Told him what he did was right
To stick beside him to the end
Be both a cuckold and a friend
That was the trend

But in the end just you remained
Paying homage to his pain
And though not one of them was real
You knew his wounds would never heal
Everybody knew the deal
And when he told you he would die
You let him believe in his own lie
Don't ask me why

'Cause now the hole in your heart has healed over
And nobody wants to know an ailing Casanova
Because it's getting nowhere
And now you know he didn't want to recover
He needed a nurse and an uncomplaining lover
A drip feed to his ego and a lifetime of intensive care

And oh the heart that beat so true
Was just a valve his life passed though
But with the pulse no longer strong
And the circulation gone
Must the body linger on?
Turn off the life support machine
And leave him to his private dreams
Behind the screens

'Cause now the hole in your heart has healed over
And nobody wants to know an ailing Casanova
Because it's getting nowhere
And now you know he didn't want to recover
He needed a nurse and an uncomplaining lover
A drip feed to his ego and a lifetime of intensive care
