Iceman

Album: Anthems for Doomed Youth (2015)
  • He was just a young boy in the city
    Clouds of smoke he sought to find his dreams
    Swayed hair and his pipe he walked through the white city
    The how's-your-father bookies run the scene

    She was just a young girl in the city
    Struggling with life, love and money
    Weaving through the streets and looking so so pretty
    The rummest sort Stockwell had ever seen
    The rummest sort Stockwell had ever seen, seen

    I've spent my days in the haze with the iceman
    I've spent my nights wandering the wards
    I've spent my days in the haze with the iceman
    It means the iceman is always on call

    She started work on the last day of November
    Spilling drinks in a seedy cabaret show
    He met her on the first day of December
    Outside a a bookshop on the Charing Cross Road

    Those winter nights they'd walk along the river
    He'd chain-smoke and she'd stare up at the sky
    And say this life, this love, this river has to end
    But just for now we have all the time
    Just for now we have all the time, time

    Don't spend your days in the haze with the iceman
    Don't spend your nights wandering the wards
    Don't spend your days in the haze with the iceman
    Because it means nothing at all

    Don't spend your days in the haze with iceman
    (Don't spend your days in the haze with the iceman)
    Don't spend your nights wandering the wards
    (Don't spend your nights wandering the wards)
    Don't spend your days in the haze with the iceman
    It means nothing at all

    Don't spend your days in the haze with the iceman
    Don't spend your nights wandering the wards
    Don't spend your days in the haze with the iceman
    It means nothing at all

    Just for now we have all the time
    Just for now we have all the time Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
