The Things That Just Pop Into My Head

It’s a Raymond Chandler evening
at the end of someone’s day
and I’m standing in my pocket
and I’m slowly turning grey

I remember what I told you
but I can’t remember why
and the yellow leaves are falling
in a spiral from the sky

There’s a body on the railings
that I can’t identify
and I’d like to reassure you
but I’m not that kind of guy.

It’s a Raymond Chandler evening
and the pavements are all wet
and I’m lurking in the shadows
because it hasn’t happened…

…yet.
