Everything comes and goes
Marked by lovers and styles of clothes
Things that you held high and told yourself were true
Lost or changing as the days come down to you

Down to you
Constant stranger you’re a kind person, you’re a cold person too
It’s down to you

You go down to the pickup station, craving warmth and beauty
You settle for less than fascination, a few drinks later, you’re not so choosy
When the closing lights strip off the shadows on this strange new flesh you’ve found
Clutching the night to you like a fig leaf, you hurry, to blackness, and the blankets,
To lay down, an impression, and your loneliness

In the morning there are lovers in the street
You look so high, you brush against a stranger, and you both apologize.
Old friends seem indifferent, you must’ve brought that on,
old bonds have broken down
Love is gone!
Ooh, love is gone,
written on your spirit, this sad song.
Love is gone.
Everything comes and goes,
Pleasure moves on too early and, trouble leaves too slow
Just when you’re thinking, you’ve finally got it made,
Bad news comes knocking at your garden gate
Knocking for you,
Constant stranger, you’re a brute, you’re an angel,
You can crawl, you can fly, too
It’s down to you…
It all comes down to you
