lyrics

She went into the basement and she went through all the records
And dug through broken boxes as she wobbled on the floorboards
The purr of furry foxes harmonising with the singers
The dust got in her eyelids and the splinters in her fingers

She found no-one listening
In time she'd hear whispering

In time, no-one's listening
Tonight no-one knows

Say goodbye to inhibitions and so long to superstitions
Spoke the records in the basement and the sleeves upon the table
She heard them sing in Cantonese, she heard them sing in Japanese
She listened to the singers with splinters in her fingers

Outside no-one listened in
Tonight only pound signs in their eyes

Do they realise?
Will they realise?

Outside no-one listened in
Tonight only pound signs in their eyes
Is she saying her goodbyes?
No-one knows
