I'm being followed home, I'm being followed home
I don't know what for, I don't know by whom
The smell of your dress, a face in the rain
The pavement shines wet, in focus again
Oh
Oh
Oh
Oh

In a dead seaside town, I tried to change my mind
For a well-balanced view, that was not mine to find

Heaven knows, all your stars are on show
They last a lifetime
And your hands leave their marks in the sand
They last forever, forever

It's clear to me: you fit so perfectly
In a dimly lit room just inside of the sea
His twisted face tells me to leave this place
You know somewhere, but I shouldn't go there
I shouldn't go there

Heaven knows, all your stars are on show
They last a lifetime
And your hands leave their marks in the sand
They last forever
They've followed me home -
The one with the dog-breath in the tattoo bar
Says something in a language that I don't understand
The street stinks of p*ss and dead fish
Jump a garden wall, landing on the slimy gra**
Air roaring in my lungs
Hear him swear as he stumbles and falls behind me
Down another cobbled street, footsteps bouncing off the walls
Which way? A bottle smashes
The glint of a blade in the moonlight
Someone laughs, the corners turned
And it's too late
The first blow falls... then nothing

I awoke on the beach sometime later
To a grey and sunless sky
Your voice still slithers in my head
I can't remember what you said
I get to my feet, my body aches
I make for the town for no-one's sake
My mind is a blur, I feel so weak
I see your reflection in the street
"It's what you deserve, it's what you need
Just like those stupid books you read."
I look to the sky, I see your face
Collapse in the road I hear you say
I shouldn't go there, I shouldn't go there!
My wound's healing now and your imprint fades
Now just a pale scar for five vanished days
Your voice is so weak, your face is unclear
Your body a legend from a forgotten year
I've been followed home
I've been followed home
I've been followed home
I've been followed home
