lyrics

Five long nights, I heard you groan.
You should have listened to your heart, how was I to know?
You've got your reasons and I held your eye.
You fell in love and I took the District Line.

Six long years, we saw what we could.
We took a couple chances and found what we assumed.
You have to stay but darling I've got to run.
You fell in love and I chose to pack and I'm gone.

If you wonder at all inside, my soul was open wide ready to coalesce soon, with your hands and innate perfume.

Don't blame yourself, you only wanted more.
To blend our lives together and maintain our great rapport.
You laid your stones and only offered me a tomb.
You fell in love and I saw impending doom.

The earth slips away dear, my will is growing weak.
To rid you of my rambling and to find some new technique.
You always said that my tenderness was real, so listen to me darling because I don't know how I feel.

If you wonder at all inside, my soul was open wide ready to coalesce soon, with your hands and innate perfume.
