Lucy Shone A Light On You: The Ballad Of Lucy Connor (Part II)

This song references ‘Sleeping Aides and Razorblades’ by The Exploding Hearts (RIP).


Baby, there was nowhere you could run, nothing you could do,
She knew better, sold your old sweater,
Lucy shone a light on you,

Lucy’s ex had a facial scar in the shape of a crescent moon,
And he’d sit on his own on a stool by the bar and waste away his afternoon,
When her career finally got in gear and the money started rolling in,
Lucy knew the time was due for him to hassle her again,

You gotta hand it to him this time,
Always thinking bout the pound signs,
Digging for another goldmine,

Lucy sighed and threw her buzzing phone onto the bed,
Just like clockwork he was back and interfering with her head,
Haunting her with compliments, acting like nothing’s changed,
But she’d hung new posters on her walls, and now the dog don’t remember his name,

She handed him a story called ‘The Void Behind Your Eyes’,
“I need another point of view, call me when you’ve read this through”.

He was a mediocre fella and she was sitting on a hit sci-fi bestseller,
A terrible tale of cosmic dread, worse than the darkest thoughts inside his head,
He was a coward, he was selfish, cheap and mean,
When he read the words inside, something deep within him died,
Yeah he glazed over at the eyes, manic laughter filled his mind,

“Don’t waste your time, your time on me, cause it’s clear that I’m not your ideal company”
