Lyrics

Four Letter Word

The papers edge
Curls in the fire
I burn her letters
One by one
Driving the flames
Ever higher
With my memory
Of what's been done

I’ve got a solution
To my problem
But it comes
From a bottle
That’s got no bottom
Oh you make me feel
Love is another
Four letter word

By the dark of the moon
I stood beneath her room
Casting my pebbles
at her window pane
But she slept
straight on through

I’ve got a solution
To my problem
But it comes
From a bottle
That’s got no bottom
Oh you make me feel
Love is another
Four letter word

She changes lovers
Like she changes clothes
And leaves all the old one’s
In a dirty pile on the floor
She’s burning the candle
With more than one friend
There’s always someone
Waiting in the wings

I’ve got a solution
To my problem
But it comes
From a bottle
That’s got no bottom
Oh you make me feel
Love is another
Four letter word
