Who Loves You Now?

This song is by The Jazz Butcher and appears on the album Distressed Gentlefolk (1986).

Who loves you now? Do I?
Who calms you down and shows you how to comply?
Whose concern is how you contend with the pain?
Whose tender hands have touched your flesh and your heart and your brain
Again and again?

Who needs you near? Do I?
Who knows exactly what you fear? Do I?
Who'll stand by you, send your temperature high?
Who'll be with you when you haemorrhage, stagger and die, dear?

Don't leave me my wretched memory,
Don't leave me now.
You get safe pills for self-inflicted ills -
Who loves you now?

Who lets you out and locks you in; who knows where you begin?
Who nestles snug inside your skin? Do I?
Who pursues you with desperate cries?
Whose fine taste only your death satisfies?

Who'll keep you safe and feed you right - turn brown meat into white?
Who'll taste your soft and tender flesh tonight?
Barren-hearted, ruthless and vain:
I'm sick of waiting for the sun to break after the rain.

We're all blind, god damn this poison humankind -
Who needs you now?
Brave sons, another generation comes -
Who loves you now?
