"Clean Slate" Lyrics

Dave Martyn

clean slate
I will leave here tonight for you now what it is that i must do
a favour done doesnt fade with time its never overdue
you say i dont realise how cruel have been the hands of time
their younger and more ruthless no loyalties,n'one to leave behind
you dont understand it your eyes give that away,
but there are debts that must always be repaid
i will ply my trade in the shadows between the light
with his life or mine the slate will be clean tonite

gone the years of cloud that forever threatened rain
gone the poison that coursed through my veins
erased the weight of burden that hung over my name
clean slate

will you turn your back on us with no chance that i'd be heard
if you dont give a fuck about me what about your little girl
you think i have a choice its all a game for me to play
i should be able to turn my back and just walk away
she looks on you with love i dont know and a heart full of pride
if you were never to return it won't be you who'll just have died
ive dreaded this moment and longed for this day
too many nights ive sat in the dark to wait

gone the years cloud that forever threatened rain
gone the poison that coursed through my veins
erased the weight of burden that hung over my name
clean slate

and there the truth dies in the pictues of her eyes
all the memories desolve to be replaced by the lies
not the man she thought you see the hero she wanted in me
devil in disguise,a shadow to despise,a stranger in the night,
a stranger in her life
