lyrics

Matador are you calling my bluff?
And why wait until now to start pushing your luck?
You know I’ll still want what you wave when I’m very old.
And I’d fall apart in your hands and profess
my pounding heart in its heaving chest
but you are only human, and after all,

its a Bull Fight.
But call it what you like
its the last thing I wanted.
Where I try and I try
like any moment I could be just what you needed.

But alright Matador lets give them what they came for.
I have the hunch of a lifetime to play for.
Go on prove me wrong be unstoppable.
‘Cause they may love you now
but this crowd will go home
whilst the centre of attention is always alone.
Beware what you wish for out there they do miracles.
And they talk in tongues and are unimpressed
by my pounding feet and I could care less!
They are only human and after all

its a Bull Fight.
But call it what you like
its the last thing I wanted.
Where I try and I try
like any moment I will be just what you needed.

drive one
home grown
fish blood
and bone
short dress
front row
she’s nice
I know
that you won’t if you don’t try so throw like the crow flies...

Bulls Eye.
That one got me right where I’m haunted.
Where I cry and I cry
‘cause I feel left behind,
and like the last thing you needed.

So Matador are you calling my bluff?
And why wait ‘til now to start pushing your luck?
You know I’ll still want what you wave when I’m very old.
And they say you don’t half choose them,
and if only I’d see it was all an illusion
... Looks like I am only human
after all.
