If you were more like I wanted you to be I’d find this easy I would pass you with flying colours and stars so big They’d be blinding folk for miles and they would be all be smiling walking about Cos I’d finally figured you out Don’t you see Im not finding this easy Don’t you see what your doing to me? Chorus This could all be easier easier than what it is right now The words I wanna hear are all but birds flying south The words I wanna hear aren’t coming out your mouth cos ive been looking Am I lookin in the wrong place? I’ve been lookin straight in your face I didn’t turn out to be the lover you wanted me to be so lets take things easy And fuck the confines of this precarious liaison up against the nearest wall Chorus This could all be easier easier than what it is right now The words I wanna hear are all but birds flying south The words I wanna hear aren’t coming out your mouth cos ive been looking Am I lookin in the wrong place? I’ve been lookin straight in your face Don’t you see Im not finding this easy Don’t you see what your doing to me? Chorus This could all be easier easier than what it is right now The words I wanna hear are all but birds flying south The words I wanna hear aren’t coming out your mouth cos ive been looking Am I lookin in the wrong place? I’ve been lookin straight in your face

I will fight some sort of a good fight In the name of what I feel is right In the midst of this conversation thats been going down tonight I cant deny, it would be stupid for me to try But fight I will cos I will not be the guy Who takes it all and nervously chews upon his lip at this relationship Facts will not hide The fiction inside God knows we never saw it start If my heart has a lock and I have got this right You must have dropped your key on your way home last night Cos a thefts taking place im being kidnapped within Someones managed to break in Like with every good murder and every solid lie You just need a weak link to reveal its alibi You played the role of my partner but you were absent in the crime So don’t we kill for company Just to cement these frail identities Don’t we kill what we love Don’t we all kill what we love Don’t we all kill what we love Facts will not hide The fiction inside God knows we never saw it start If my heart has a lock and I have got this right You must have dropped your key on your way home last night Cos a thefts taking place im being kidnapped within Someones managed to break in Someones managed to break in

Wake up wake chop your breakfast out on a plate White boys wake looking for ways to dissipate Seven days make a week wait whats the date Its been six weeks that’s 42 days Blues come through me wait don’t do me anything Other than another favour you’ve lost me Brains not awake yet wake me up Wake up wake up wake up wake up Ive seen 42 moons turn into the sun 42 boys dancing to noise in a club clubs don’t stop but they always end too soon one - wait theres the sun wheres the fucking moon gone? Ive had 42 lives over 6 weeks 6 times 42 two hundred and fifty two beats listened to drugs don’t stop but they always end too soon one boy waits in line the emergency room spins like a ball like a disco hall go go get a vice lose a virtue nice boys don’t but the bad ones hurts you im on a lad ladder climbing up high trying to get higher this is fucking genius im in every element ever made ace club heart spade diamonds will die but the beat just wont fade the beat just wont fade diamonds will die but the beat just wont fade

Funny looking life making money looking let then right make a run for it Run until you find whatever feels right and then take a piece of it funny how you do what you swear you’ll never do i must be getting older now inhibitions falling through the blue sky when my blue eyes landed on this guy cos you and me want this you and me do this you and me fear that you and me wont get what you and me still bet’s ever so clear you and me did this you and me hid this you and me knew that you and me kissed and then you and me wished that you and me could do what me and you do wonder where we’ll go if we ever get through this mess its gon’ be difficult the more i get of you the less i feel i can do can do without you but do what you have to do but do me first before you do cos i do think its gonna be hard if you go home without me funny how a boy gets so bored when he’s taking it taking it sometimes you wanna give what you get instead of faking it faking it if somethings in your way how you gonna get past it past it just throw your money down cos loving from the hearts gonna cost you but its worth every penny that you’ll put down

Im not who I was oh can anyone see the way to get back to me? Im not who i was i’ve been trying to be something outside me Im not what I do will someone show me whatever I cant see Im not who I was but a small tributary who lost his way back to the sea Run away from New York and go straight back to London Run away from New York and go straight back to London Run away from New York and go straight back to London Run away from New York and go straight back to London Im not who I do but do who I can see and I do it all selfishly Im not who I am but aware what you see when you look right through me Run away from New York and go straight back to London Run away from New York and go straight back to London Run away from New York and go straight back to London Run away from New York and go straight back to London There I’ll find peace of mind there I’ll be free Run away from New York and go straight back to London Run away from New York and go straight back to London Run away from New York and go straight back to London Run away from New York and go straight back to London
