lyrics

oh come on don’t be like that
it was only a turn of phrase
and i’ll take it all back
but you’ve stopped listening
hours ago
cause you don’t like those
raggle taggle gypsies o

but oh oh awake a sweat when it breaks
just on one side
surging in me the urge to be...
running

you’re a good catch and good company
and the shapes on the ceiling are aesthetically pleasing
but they’re just not me
and you stopped listening hours ago
cause you don’t like those
raggle taggle gypsies o

but oh oh awake a sweat when it breaks
just on one side
surging in me the urge to be...

running from this city where everyone’s a spy
and you always have to try to be on everybody's good side
and the only way to survive is on them never to rely
if you’re wasting all you’re energy
on friends, they’ll soon be enemies
and i would leave if i were you
and do what i was born to do
cause i have heard that deep within
this city lies a spell
that possesses all the thinkers
and leaves behind a shell
that stays alive from nine to five
and then disappears as well
until the same time same place

and then somewhere along the line
you realise time really does fly
and you go on a middle aged mission
to ind out who stole you’re life
and you’ll wonder if its too late
to be out in the cold
where we all grow old at the same rate
and oh come on
don’t be like that
it was only a turn of phrase and i
take it all back.
