this mess we’re in lyrics – pj harvey

can you hear them?
the helicopters?
i’m in new york
no need for words now
we sit in silence
you look me
in the eye directly
you met me
i think it’s wednesday
the evening
the mess we’re in and
the city sun sets over me

night and day
i dream of
making-love
to you now baby
love-making
on-screen
impossible dream
and i have seen
the sunrise
over the river
the freeway
reminding
of this mess we’re in and
the city sun sets over me

what were you wanting?
i just want to say
don’t ever change now baby
and thank you
i don’t think we will meet again
and you must leave now
before the sunrise
above skyscr*pers
the sin and
this mess we’re in and
the city sun sets over me
