Dime

Another night
Another dime
To throw away

Another sight
Another quiet
Howl in my head

‘Cause here at night
I can’t reply
Only cry in bed

You are the dime that brings bad luck
You are the struck and the stardust
You’re the disaster and
My only master and
It doesn’t help trying to live
‘Cause without you I cannot breathe

Another night
Another dime
It’s just the same

Another bite
Another cry
Not in my head

‘Cause here at night
Alone I die
Wish I could forget

You are the dime that brings bad luck
You are the struck and the stardust
You’re the disaster and
My only master and

You are the dime that brings bad luck
You are the struck and the stardust
You’re the disaster and
My only master and
It doesn’t help trying to live
‘Cause without you I cannot breathe
I just cannot breathe

From the album At the Magic Door, by Strega.
