I've been watching me fall for it seems like years 
Watching me grow small, I watch me disappear 
Slipping out my ordinary world, out my ordinary eyes 
Yeah slipping out the ordinary me into someone else's life 
Into someone else's life 

There's a thin white cold new moon and the snow is coming down 
And the neon bright Tokyo lights flicker through the crowd 
I've been drifting around for hours and I'm lost and I'm tired 
When a whisper in my ear insatiable breathes 
"why don't you follow me inside?" 

Yeah the room is small, the room is bright 
Her hair is black, the bed is white 
And the night is always young 
Is always young, always young 
The night is always young 

Yeah I've been seeing them strip to the bone in the mirror on the wall 
Seeing her swallow him whole like it's not me at all 
She holds out her hands and I follow her down to my knees 
And the sucking inside insatiable smiles 
"You will forget yourself in me" 

Yeah the room is small, the room is bright 
Her eyes are black, the bed is white 
And the night is always young 
And the night goes on and on 
And the night is always young 
And the night is never over and over and over and over and over

And this it's gone 
And this it's gone 
Yeah then it's gone 

Yeah it's a cruel mean cold new day and outside the snow is still coming down 
And in the blood red Tokyo bed I watch me coming round 
She pulled him down for hours 
Deeper than I've ever been 
And as I fall in the mirror on the wall 
I'm watching me scream 
I'm watching me scream 
I'm watching me scream 

I'm watching me scream 

Yeah I've been watching me go for it must be years 
Watching me get slow, I watch me disappear 
And one day, yeah I know, I won't come back at all
And always over and over in his ordinary eyes 
I'm watching me fall 
I'm watching me fall 
I'm watching me fall 

I'm watching me fall
