You were skinny and pale and pretty
and you’d lost all your friends in the haze
and you shivered when you sat on the pavement beside me

“What bands are you here to see?” you asked and I said all of them because I couldn’t remember who was playing

and later I saw you when we were in some pub and you’d found your friends again and I’d found mine

and we took off together
and our friends faces were confused and grinning
and you were skinny and pale and pretty
and said I was skinny and pale
and happy
