Only a misdirected dart
At an unprotected heart
I'm sure it happens everyday
Just a passing interlude
Fresh face to change the mood
I'll find my feet again you say
What rock I had you rolled
What rock I had you rolled away
But I live as best I can
Meet the uninhabited man
Please read the sign and walk away
What an old, dry shell I am
The uninhabited man
I'll find my feet again you say
Rolled up they pull me down
Rolled up they pull me down someday
Who's been sleeping in my bed?
Who's been sleeping in my bed?
Who's been sitting in my chair?
Who's been licking in my bowl?
Who's been sleeping in my bed?
A romantic ruin am I
Funny how I catch the eye
The vacuum slowly sucks you in
I'm left no skill no art
To reach you heart to heart
You'll find no me beneath the skin
And if there's no me then there's no sin
Who's been sleeping in my bed?
Who's been sleeping in my bed?
And who's been sitting in my chair?
Who's been licking in my bowl?
Who's been sleeping in my bed?
(humming)
