  • Are you still talking to
    All of those dead film stars
    Like you used to
    And are you still thinking of
    All of those pretty rhymes
    And perfect crimes
    Like you used to..

    And if you're still alive
    When you're twenty five
    Shall I kill you like you asked me to?
    If you're still alive
    When you're twenty five
    Shall I kill you I know you told me to
    But I really don't want to

    I remember every single thing you said to me
    You played the man and I was Calvary
    And you said, ah you said
    New love grows on trees
    New love grows on trees
    New love grows... New love grows on trees!
    If you please and if you don't please

    That makes perfect nonsense to me
    As a price of being free these days
    It's ridiculous...

    Are you still shaking out
    All the dead wood from your bed love
    Like you used to?
    Well times don't change and
    Are you still thinkin of
    All of those perfect rhymes for love divine?
    Oh no, you really don't have to
    If you're still alive
    When you're twenty five
    Oh, should I kill you like you asked me to?
    If you're still alive
    When you're twenty five
    Should I kill you?
    You told me to,
    But I really don't want to

    I remember every single thing you said to me
    You played the man, and I was Calvary

    You said new love grows on trees
    New love grows on trees
    New love grows... New love grow on trees Writer/s: Peter Martin Doherty, Stephen Street
