lyrics

they’re playing love songs on the radio
i stole you
that i stole you
in inch of snow and forecast full of rain
that days ago had made its way into your stereo

where virtuoso’s spill their guts
over who climbs what and how high and
how much it grates
that i can make mistakes
and i can break my strings
and that aside from this song i sing
i haven’t got you anything

where are my hand fulls of roses?
where are my promises that i’m yours?
and where is my sense of adventure?
seems i only ever climb your contours

and i said its better to wait for the weather
to blow us apart or throw us together
cause i’ve read things about words like forever

plus your plastered and pouring in
at 4 in the morning
saying don’t you want to get down to it in the bath
i’m going to take you up to Greenwich to see the stars
and the comets but your
tying ribbons around an empty promise
and you’re backing horses with your empty pockets
all in vain
and acting like its all the rage
oh the rage

‘cause every picture fades in its offer
as the plans we make get raided with the coppers
if thats what you meant by pulling out the stoppers

where are your hand fulls of roses?
where are those promises of yours?
and where is your sense of adventure?
seems you only ever climb my contours

and then in the morning i hear you creeping
and then leaving for work in the clothes you sleep in
oh how did i miss them?
what was i thinking?

those are your handfuls of roses
and these are my promises
that i’m yours
and yeah its my idea of romance
cause its a slow dance
and of course

step by step
we’re at home in the weather as she blows us apart and throws us together
like she’s read things about words like forever
and if everyone’s scared
if nobodies sure or good enough for anyone else anymore
then what do i care?
i don’t need to be cured
or endlessly reassured
and i’m so sure that i’m not sure
i’m so sure i’m not sure

what i upset myself for
