Internal Bleedings

let‘s have a last drink before xmas
was what tina torrent suggested
and so we left the office
because what tina said was law

tina had come a long way
from her home town to this city
she foundered, she succeeded
wound up workin here with me

so we had a last drink before xmas
down at memorial church
when the truck came out of nowhere
dashed tina into my arms

into my arms, o lord
into my arms
i don’t believe in an interventionist god
but truck drivers go a long way to a tryst with destiny

internal bleedings said the doctor
internal bleedings i repeated

internal bleedings
ever since
internal bleedings
ever since

tina had come a long way
from colleague to lover
we found each other and succeeded
wound up living in a dream

tina torrent was a beauty
that’s how you should remember her

internal bleedings said the doctor
internal bleedings i repeated

internal bleedings
ever since
internal bleedings
ever since
