Truce Truce, call a truce Stop all the firing and the fighting Christmas morning, What would the good Lord say?

Closing A Door If you go I think you should know You're closing a door Behind you And if we meet again Try not to pretend We lost anything Of value My generosity Generosity Is fading fast For you, baby Don't wanna hear 'bout tomorrow My curiosity Curiosity Is not gonna be The undoing of me I'll carry my own tiny sorrow Like the hawk That yearns to lock His claws into every Sparrow You're the one That loves to run The needle through the bone To the marrow Twenty lovers in a week You can get 'em Sure you can There's lot's of geeks And every mother one of them Wants to get lucky Or maybe you need More than one man Probably a legion Every one a fan I'm trying to find it in me To hope you're happy So when you go I feel you oughta know You're closing a door Behind you And when we meet again Promise not to pretend We lost anything Of value.
Fighting with the kids on the fairground Caravans and TV masts Generating trucks and Alsatians I never seen you run so fast Picking through the litter left afterwards For. Even Steven Sartorial Eloquence You've a certain sartorial eloquence And a style that's almost all your own You've got the knack of being so laid back It's like talking to the Great Unknown You've got a selfsufficient swept-back hairdo Pretty certain that you've got it made Oh, your lifestyle shows in the clothes you chose Sitting pretty in the Masquerade Don't you wanna play this game no more Don't you wanna play no more?
