Permanent shivers

A friend, Bella, just sent me this video of my husband as a mere child doing the beautiful teen-angst anthem ‘Shivers’ with his first band The Boys Next Door. I haven’t seen it for years. I’m sorry, but how completely adorable. Thank you, Bella! Love, Susie x

 

Shivers

I've been contemplating suicide
But it really doesn't suit my style
So I think I’ll just act bored instead
And contain the blood I would've shed

She makes me feel so ill at ease
My heart is really on it's knees
I keep a poker face so well
That even mother couldn't tell

But my baby's so vane
She is almost a mirror
and the sound of her name
Sends a permanent shiver down my spine

I keep her photograph against my heart
For in my life she plays a starring part
All alcohol and cigarettes
There is no room for cheap regrets 

But my baby's so vane
She is almost a mirror
And the sound of her name
Sends a permanent shiver down my spine
