Lyrics

I try to hold my breath but she reads between the lines
Cos she loves cocaine and the nineteen seventy-five
And I should know better but I'm blown away
When I can hold my own I might come back someday

Try to make ends meet in the streets I've never seen
I blurt out lies and I don't know why
Get out of my head and I'll get out of yours
You've learnt so much from the back of your credit card

Should I bide my time?
Should I hold my tongue?
What if I let go and everything goes wrong?
Maybe she's in pain?
Maybe she needs love?
'Cos all the love I feel I've got enough for both of us
Have I said too much?
Does she think I'm lying?
Has she ever seen a man when he's been struck by lightning?
And I'll never ever ever ever ever be the same

I try to hold my breath but she reads between the lines
Cos she loves cocaine and the nineteen seventy-five
And I should know better but I'm petrified
'Cos it's only when she's halfway dead that she feels so alive

Should I bide my time?
Should I hold my tongue?
What if I let go and everything goes wrong?
Maybe she's in pain?
Maybe she needs love?
'Cos all the love I feel I've got enough for both of us
Have I said too much?
Does she think I'm lying?
Has she ever seen a man when he's been struck by lightning?
And I'll never ever ever ever ever be the same

She missed her train she was sat in the front of the car
when she laughed I laughed too so infectious
I said you're an addict she called me pretentious
for using big words the hypocrisy's tragic
I've lost my lid in the way that she lives
I hate what she takes but I love what she gives me
My seatbelts on, has the moment gone?
'Cos for a second it was magic
For a second it was magic

So I'll take my time
And I'll wait my turn
And I let her know before I get myself burned
Maybe she needs me
Maybe I need her
With all this second-hand love I've got enough for both of us
'Cause I said too much
And she thinks I'm lying
Has she ever seen a man when he's been set on fire
And I'll never ever ever ever ever ever be the same

And I'll never see her again
And I'll never see her again
And I'll never see her again
And I'll never see her again, again, again, again
