Chinese new year
Year of the rat
Once you discover that, you recover

Hold tight, the morning tears at the window
Old lovers passing words in idle and strain
Lose your head, the ties that bind such love
Everybody knows that you’re afraid

This Chinese new year
This waning moon
These crimes of passion
Come to my room
