  • Take a long hard look at yourself
    How did you end up here
    The blood drips like red inverted balloons
    Tomorrow is a promise to no-one

    If you want, follow me and I'll lead you inside
    You don't have to run and hide

    Eleanor, Eleanor
    I would do anything for another minute with you because
    It's not getting easier, it's not getting easier

    In a bedroom with no windows or doors
    All the happy people are crying
    You can't hold a gaze for a second or two
    It always ends in total darkness

    Eleanor, Eleanor
    I would do anything for another minute with you because
    It's not getting easier, it's not getting easier
    You will be folding stars
    You can't ever understand
    It's not getting easier, it's not getting easier

    It ends in a place with no love only hate
    And a mirror reflecting the truth
    In your eyes, in your face you can't wash it away
    From your cold, cold heart

    I hope that you're folding stars Writer/s: SIMON ALEXANDER NEIL
