  • I saw him
    He saw me
    That Turin-stained shroud
    In Rimini
    He cried
    And I cried
    We both died
    Laughing
    Him and me
    Why me?
    Why Rimini?

    I want you
    You want me
    We both want
    The things we'll never be now
    We see now
    It's sad how
    Some things aren't meant to be
    For we
    Are just you and me
    It never happens when you want it to
    It never does what it's supposed to do
    It's never good enough to see me through
    See me through

    I love that shroud that you're in
    I love that you're maturing
    I love that sweet sack you're in
    I love your saccharin

    I love that shroud that you're in
    I love that you from Turin
    I love that sweet sack you're in
    I love your saccharin

    It never happens when you want it to
    It never does what it's supposed to do
    It's never good enough to see me through
    See me through

    He saw me
    I saw him
    We both saw
    Beneath each others'
    Skin deep-
    Er than deep
    We both sleep
    To dream of what could be
    For me
    And sing hymns for him and me

    It never happens when you want it to
    It never does what it's supposed to do
    It's never good enough to see me through
    See me through

    I love that shroud that you're in
    I love that you're from Turin
    I love that sweet sack you're in
    I love your saccharin

    I love that shroud that you're in
    I love that you're maturing
    I love that sweet sack you're in
    I love your saccharin Writer/s: IAN STEPHEN MCCULLOCH, WILLIAM SERGEANT
