Such a Pretty Sight

Sandy Ln is a place you take yourself
Alone at the dawning of the day
Where no-one knows your name
And nobody remembers
If it was you that came in yesterday
Still burned around the edges
With the final glowing embers
Of a love that strayed.
And you know before the coffee’s poured
You’ve already had much more than you can afford

I live out the day with the remains of what you gave me in the night
I try not to name it, you know my heart always strays to what my mind knows ain’t right
I try to make it plain to you and one day I may, but till then there’s the night
And in the morning a vapour trail makes such a pretty sight
