The New Sofa

The smell of cold coffee filled the room
The clock moved towards the hour of doom
The sofa near the fireside
Did nothing to hide
All the things that went wrong
A new sofa was bought
Tick Tock Tick Tock
The faint light from the candle
Cast a shadow, too dark to gamble
Life’s riches
Life’s wishes
Life’s joys
Life’s toys
A heart attack
Attacks the heart, black
Cold, Cold, Cold
The wind wants to be the cause
Of that attack
Tick, tock, time doesn’t pause
Leaving you behind
To sit there on your new sofa
In the cold, dark, mind
You’ve lost it
You know you have.
