I want to the stop the clocks for you


AUDEN: FUNERAL BLUES

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

LA: STOP THE CLOCKS

Listen to me
There’s only one thing you cannot see
Every time you talk
Millions of things
There’s only one that you cannot see
Every time you talk
You can’t stop the clocks forever
Listen to what I say
Stop the clocks for you and me
Listen to me again
Stop the clocks forever
Listen to me
There’s only one thing you cannot see
Every time you talk
Millions of things
There’s only one that changes everything
Every time you fall
You cannot stop the clocks forever
Listen to what I say
Stop the clocks for you and me
Listen to me again
Stop the clocks forever
Stop the clocks for you and me
Everything happens too fast
Now it’s a part of my past
Everything changes so fast
Stop the clocks forever
Stop the clocks for you and me
Stop the clocks forever
Stop the clocks
