Black Cloud

I used to have everything I ever wanted, everything and more
Worshippers and wannabes hung out outside my door
I used to have everything I ever wanted, women, wine and song
I wish I knew how everything went wrong

'Cause there's a black bird on the telephone wire
And a black fruit in the tree
There's a black cat with it's tail in the fire
There's a black cloud over me
There's a black cloud over me

I used to run with the movers and the shakers, I used to swim with sharks
I had a super-model girlfriend, when we kissed we shot off sparks
I used to run with the most important people, I had wealthy friends galore
Now I don't have anyone no more

'Cause there's a black bird on the telephone wire
And there's black leaves in my tea
There's a black cat with it's tail in the fire
There's a black cloud over me
There's a black cloud over me
Can't you see it over me?
It's starting to rain

Now all the wine has turned back up into water, the women have gone home
The only song I sing, I sing because I'm all alone
I used to have everything I ever wanted, everything and more
Now I don't have anything no more

But there's a black bird on the telephone wire
And there's black mist on the sea
There's a black cat with it's tail in the fire
There's a black cloud over me

There's a black bird on the telephone wire
And there's black leaves in my tea
There's a black cat with it's tail in the fire
And a black cloud over me
There's a black could over me
There's a black cloud over me
Can't you see it?
