Song Description

A relationship gone very, very bad.

Lyrics

TOM AND SUZANNE

Long ago, when just a child,
the lightning knocked him over.
He got up when the storm had left,
but left himself behind. From that
point on he was just a soul, looking for a body.
Running with the demons
left him empty and blind.

Suzanne went down to the burning
ground and brought him in
His coat was torn, his money gone,
there was blood on his chin
The daughter of the river thought
she'd cleanse his reflection
Heal the pain and wash
away each imperfection

And Mary swore "don't ever
show your face round here.
"That's right," she said,
"Don't ever show your face.
"Cause if I ever thought you
had the grace to know
just how I feel, you wouldn't
show your face round here."

Who was he to conjure what she saw in him?
Who was he to understand her need to begin?
Does salvation come to those who deserve it least?
No one earns a ticket to that eternal feast.

(Chorus)

Was she an artist,
was he just her clay?
Did he have a will left,
or any words to say?
And when she saw him broken
then, just like before,
Did she blame herself or know
that there was nothing more?
