Matt's Not Coming Back (by Black Widow)

Here's a nice set of lyrics inspired by Steve Gerber's early Daredevil stories, part of the cycle I call "Roshomonics." I think of them from Natasha's point of view.




Matt’s Not Coming Back
Matt’s Not Coming Back
To San Fransisco where it’s just the man
And dreams are pulling stakes
Homeless, now my heart aches.
I didn’t know he could live without me.

1/ Moondragon, she could read his mind
No longer blind
So of the chances I have taken by his side
It seems a mansion is no home
Where there’s nobody home
Are we all alone?
Sold out, he’s the hold out man
The show won’t sell to feed the band
And all beside the Bay as planned
Fell down once they took their stand
And here am I on another sand
Love, adventure life was grand
But there’s no final act
Matt’s not coming back.
Matt’s Not Coming Back
Matt’s Not Coming Back
To San fransisco where it’s just the man
And dreams are pulling stakes
Homeless, now my heart aches.
I didn’t know he could live without me.

2. Hear my heart, did I lie?
Smell my sweat, don’t deny
Taste of me is memory
That you would so defy
To New York and someone past
And so we are apart at last
In your dark and all alone
Such a heart, a heart of stone
I call but nowhere near the phone
What can I spy, when it’s known
That there’s no final act
And Matt’s not coming back.
Matt’s Not Coming Back
Matt’s Not Coming Back
To San Fransisco where it’s just the man
And dreams are pulling stakes
Homeless, now my heart aches.
I didn’t know he could live without me.
