LyricsEdit

Stopped by for the coffee and cake that you promised
Saw your porch light on
Saw your wirehaired terrier lazing on the lawn
Came right in through the front door
Went right down the main hall
Turned right into the kitchen
There you were alright
The moon was rising over Bridlington
And you had blood all over your hands
Someone was singing in the yard next door
And you had blood all over your hands

Sat down on the kitchen floor
Looked up at you
Saw you smoothing down your skirt around your thighs
Wondered what good that was supposed to do
And I saw you pull your hair back
Saw you messing with your earrings
Saw you trying to smile
Hey you don't have to smile for me
The moon was rising over Bridlington
And you had blood all over your hands
Something was cracking in the rafters of our house
And you had blood all over your hands
The moon was rising over Bridlington
The moon was rising over Bridlington
The moon was rising
