Loan - Lyrics

So we tow the line, the line was taught as violin strings
We're at breaking point, I can hear the sound of muscles twinge
All the bad things are converging into a point
And the time is now, its fight or flight

But we used to be so young, so beautiful, so in love
Now that photograph I pined over is face down on the shelf
All the men you've been with since is just the tip of the iceberg
And the jury's out, I'm in no doubt as to what I must do

So I, I took a loan from the bank
I took a long shot, I ain't ever paying it back
So I, I took a long look back
I took a long shot, but I ain't ever getting this back

I was never meant to be a hyacinth or lily
Just a humble hardy fern in bleak midwinter
All I ask is for a ray of light to reach my leaves
Then I'd envelope them out and soak it up

But the light don't come round here much, into these suburbs
We're at the edge of numbness where the image lost all colour
All I had I ingested, gambled, till there was not a cent
Now there's a carol choir singing from a far while my baby sleeps

So I, I took a loan from the bank
I took a long shot, I ain't ever paying it back
So I, I took a long look back
I took a long shot, but I ain't ever getting this back
