lyrics

Benny is a heartbreaker
Always breaks own heart
Every minute always haunted
By every girl he ever wanted
Late night sparks up
Eyes wake feels crushed
Standing in the rain waiting
If they could pay him less they would

If I could only reach for you
If you could only reach for me
If I could only reach for you
If you could only reach for me

Jeanne doesn't talk much
Cos Jeanne hasn't much to say
Scratches in a little cut
At least she gets to feel something
Lights up another fag
Shakes as she takes a drag
You could say there's nothing of her
Sometimes she doesn't think to eat

If I could only reach for you
If you could only reach for me
and she thought 
If I could only reach for you
If you could only reach for me
If I could only reach for you
If you could only reach for me

Fall on a reflection catch her eyes
Then tell himself that he's a fool
Cos each and every time he fell flat
That other people felt the same way too
He'd never really thought about that

Practised in the art of dying
Practised in the art of dying
Practised in the art of 

If I could only reach for you
If you could only reach for me
and she thought 
If I could only reach for you
If you could only reach for me
If I could only reach for you
If you could only reach for me


Practised in the art of dying
Practised in the art of dying
Practised in the art of 

Practised in the art of dying
Practised in the art of dying
Practised in the art of
