The gift was never made
It was a trick of the fog and clouds
He left his ragtop down
And packed up all his bags

Did she truly care
She said she knew him well
Why was he so sure
There was no more to buy or sell

The windows are all closed
The cat is out the door
The king has been deposed
The people ask for more and more

There’d be nothing left
If he accepted half as much
His car alarm went off
The numbers on his watch

Were glowing in the mist
The woman was his wife
She was really pissed
She cruised the streets all day and night

The windows are all closed
The cat is out the door
The king has been deposed
The people ask for more and more

Why was he always stuck
In the middle of the pack
He’d missed the whole damn point
The first one and the last

There was no one staring back
There was nothing to be done
It was way way too late
To fall in love with anyone

The windows are all closed
The cat is out the door
The king has been deposed
The people ask for more and more

He found the car down by the docks
She had left it in one piece
There was a letter on the dash
She had landed on her feet

Her words were right as rain
He could accept her point of view
For truth is always grey
And beauty‘s always old and new

The windows are all closed
The cat is out the door
The king has been deposed
The people ask for more and more

He got the call at 3am
Her voice was clear as a bell
His heart was set adrift
Between the shores of heaven and hell
