'By Then' as sung By Eliza Carthy on Heat Light and Sound

Really haunting song

Sleeve notes on Cassette read: "This song is about wanting what the other person doesn't want. You know it will be a mess in the end but you don't care"

It has a star indicating that she wrote the song herself

I can't find anything through the powers of Google!

Thank You for any help

You can hear "By Then" at last.fm

I'm not sure I want to attempt a transcription. I got a Mondegreen Award for my last attempt.

I hope this text has no mondegreens in it, thanks to Garry Gillard and Kira White.

BY THEN
(Eliza Carthy)

I see my pain before it is near to me
I shut it out before it is a problem
I have my eyes I have my mind
But still I believe that all is fine and still within my reach

I met my pain a day out on the road
I took a look and saw it as a thing I'd know
I have my eyes I have my mind
But still I believe that it will pass and I won't look behind

So see my pain as it takes hold my senses
Of all the sugared kisses these are sweetest
I have my eyes I have my mind
But still I believe the weals they leave will not begin to show
