lyrics

I was standing by the sink
washing plates with contented ease.
She was beside me, fretting as I cleaned.

It's possible she was fighting –
nay – probable.
But I wasn't fighting.
I never fought.
I'll never know.

His keys clicked and scraped the lock.
There'll be a clatter, now, of feet.
A little boy racing to the door.

There was a short note, was all.
'I can't live like this'.
He took it without fighting.
The errors had been his.

The men fell out of touch.
Six years to the month.
A void stuffed latterly with old affront.

No fight in them, in I or him:
just spite and puzzlement.
I want more – god, so much more
than this covenant.
