i like frankie sparo a lot. here are the lyrics to 'bastard heart' by frankie sparo. frankie sparo is my favourite lyricist, i think.



Bastard Heart


Weary as the cinema
in your broken coat,

dreary is the pictureshow

with phantoms rattling round your bastard heart.


Photographs of motorcrashes
starring me—I pulled them from

an incision in your throat

while you were fast asleep.


Where were you when evening fell?

All the town grew still and old.

Something set itself on fire,

and flew across the sea.


How I wished that you were there,

watching yourself go away.

There was always two of you

in my peculiar dream and bastard heart.
