I thought I could hear you arrive But you snuck up on me instead I could've laughed myself to death Had been told I'd want to touch the sky Though I think I'd prefer to stand Where my feet recommend and then We listen to 'The Soft Parade' The best part of the trip He says and I Don't know if I can agree with him just yet Not just yet. We wonder why you are not yourself Or are the changes in this room An attribute of the shit consumed? Had been told I'd want to touch the sky Though I think I'd prefer to stand Side by side and holding your hand And listen to 'The Soft Parade' The best part of the trip He says and I Don't know if I can agree with him just yet Not just yet And listen to 'The Soft Parade' The best part of the trip He says and I Don't know if I can agree with him just yet Oh! But I Can sort of see the colours that he meant And this is it!

I found your brooch the one you had lost last week It was underneath the passenger seat Sitting beside a five cent piece. And you had that look in your eyes One I hesitate to describe 'Cos it's only meant for me It tells me that I'm your baby The back seats were occupied The doors were locked And soon enough the street lamps and moonlight Turn inseparable in the fog The windscreen had captured the mist That grew more everytime we kissed As we took turns to ignore our phones It didn't matter what time I got you home. I found your brooch the one you had lost last week It was underneath the passenger seat Sitting beside a five cent piece. And you had that look in your eyes One I hesitate to describe 'Cos it's only meant for me It tells me that I'm your baby

Talking to you makes my knees go weak To say I'm frightened of you says the least. And as I formulate my pitch A swing and then a miss awaits me If it you who's upto hit. To capture your heart as easily as you did mine Is difficult if fear comes up trumps everytime Your reputation wont be conceded To the fact that you proceeded To talk to someone like me You lose your train of thought You just stand still and forget The tips that you've been told And continue to Make believe she's not the girl for me It's the other way around I've found You'll shut down my attempts to chat you up And do the same for everybody else that's in this club As he begins to make his advance He turns to stone with just a glance from you It's a lesson for the remaining few And the gazelle escapes the cheetah's grasp Disappointment has never been achieved this fast The bravest will turn to leg it Toward the emergency exit You lose your train of thought You just stand still and forget The tips that you've been told And continue to Make believe she's not the girl for me It's the other way around you'll find And better luck next time.

"I wanna be alone, I gotta be alone" She says in my company If you're gonna let me go I think you oughta know I'm gonna take it personally, yeah. Your bobby pins I find Under my bed remind Me of all the time we spent in my room Like we were in our cocoon I hope we can resume But for now I'm back to dreaming of you And you're trying to let me down So gently it's just keeping me around "I wanna be alone, Would you please just take me home? With you is somewhere I can't be." If you're gonna let me go I think you oughta know I'm gonna take it personally. Those bobby pins I find Under my bed remind Me of all the time we spent in my room. Like we were in our cocoon How I wish we could resume But for now I'm back to dreaming of you. And you're trying to let me down So gently it's just keeping me around Our friends think they know what's best for me I ain't told you something... When I'm at home I type your name on a screen And there you are smiling back at me with someone I ain't even seen: Jealousy. If I'm just the driver she's lady penelope. And you're trying to let me down So gently it's just keeping me around And you're trying to let me down So gently it's just keeping me around Our friends think they know what's best for me I ain't told you something, I would have to agree.

One hundred years just cannot seem to heal What a fraction of a second had revealed We're inherently flawed. I lose my love each time you turn away You know that makes it easier to say We're inherently flawed. Capture me a likely candidate Someone like you Someone who's willing to create A terrible mistake Automatically your hand is raised Is that a sign of a girl who's not afraid No round of applause at the end he pleads She never said she offered guarantees Back inside the belly of the beast Confusion stops thoughts turning into speech Am I inherently flawed? Last night I felt you loosen your grip Is this the part that you prefer to skip? Are we inherently flawed? Capture me a likely candidate Someone like you Someone who's willing to create A terrible mistake Automatically your hand is raised Is that a sign of a girl who's not afraid No round of applause at the end he pleads The sun hasn't changed Them clouds were here yesterday And they're here and you're not; And I don't like em anymore Let's go back to what we're used to Let's go back to what we're used to Let's go back to what we're used to. Let's go back. Automatically your hand is raised Is that a sign of a girl who's not afraid No round of applause at the end he pleads No round of applause at the end he pleads She never said she offered guarantees. We lose, we lose. We lose, we lose, my love.

You're continually testing the waters And making sure to always proceed with caution And dipping in your toe every once in a while Just don't forget to tell me how it goes He should've just asked. You'd've told him no But then he dives in head first And there's nowhere you can go You can only give in And you're gonna give in You're gonna give in. You're gonna give in. You're gonna give in. You're gonna give in. It's a matter of time Drinking doesn't help just adds probable cause He's looking at you thinking to himself "we're right on course" It's what we call the chase How we love a good one We'll do whatever it takes And you know that when we've won? Is when you give in Are you gonna give in? You're gonna give in. You're gonna give in. You're gonna give in. You're gonna give in. It's a matter of time
