lyrics

I’ve got some things that need figuring out
Like, what are you doing the first Friday in June?
To rectify, I thought my heart had died
And I buried it too soon

Tell me are you getting tired
Of all the games we’re playing
Are you also getting tied up
In all the words you’re saying

The people here are strange
Let’s escape together into our little world
Where we’ll make for stormy weather

I’ve been losing myself in the dire and grim
Humming drab and doleful odes
At long last, some keen spirit has woken
Waiting for you to explode, oh

Tell me are you getting tired
Of all the games we’re playing
Are you also getting tied up
In all the words you’re saying

The people here are strange
Let’s escape together into our little world
Where we’ll make for stormy weather

And lose ourselves
In ordinary things

Suddenly I am looking forward
To pizzas on sofas
On Sunday afternoons
And fights over presents for

Friends I’ve yet to meet
We’ll have nicknames for everything
And songs to claim as ours
Until the walls all start closing in

Tell me are you getting tired
Of all the games we’re playing
Are you also getting tied up
In all the words you’re saying

The people here are strange
Let’s escape together into our little world
Where we’ll make for stormy weather

And we’ll have some fun
With ordinary things
