Louise, Louise

The bleeding ghost
Waiting on my doorstep
Singing a song
Says “it’s time to go”
“Well, I ain’t going nowhere”,
I say
So she hoists herself
On her own thin mast
Turns, and sails away

Down Victoria Road,
Into a night so dark
It could break your heart
If you had a mind to let it
Or if it crawled in under
The door of your defences
While you were distracted
By a vision of Louise
And she’s
Telling me it’s love again
Found a new boy
But lost him somewhere
And she can’t remember when

Her vampiric hangers-on
Have sucked the life
Outta everything ’round here
So I pull up the stakes
And walk away too
