Album: All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu (2010)
  • Where you been, Zebulon?
    What you doin' in this song?
    Skating on the ice of song, about to go under

    My mother's in hospital, my sister's at the opera
    I'm in love, but let's not talk about it
    There's so much to tell you

    I believe in freedom
    Freedom's apparently all I need
    But who's ever been free in this world?
    Who has never had to bleed in this world?

    All I need are your eyes
    Your nose was always too big for your face
    Still, it made you look kinda sexy
    More like someone who belongs in the human race

    Where you been, Zebulon?
    Let's meet up, why not tonight?
    In the lane behind the schoolyard
    And we'll have some tea and ice cream Writer/s: RUFUS WAINWRIGHT
