Well I know I hardly know you and I’ve mispronounced your name and it’s all I do to think of you and hope you feel the same Well if stupid is as stupid does then I’m the stupid king Cause whenever I’m around you well, you’re my everything Cause you’re sweet / You’re so incredibly sweet Cause you’re sweet / You’re so incredibly sweet Well the way you let me hold your hand in mine on Christmas day It was serious and funny and I couldn’t stay Well it’s not quite rocket science shot and spliced in super 8 But the time I spent with you that night well… it was great Cause you’re sweet / You’re so incredibly sweet Cause you’re sweet / You’re so incredibly sweet Well I tried to write a letter but I couldn’t find the words And I felt more like an albatross, awkward and unsure Press pause, rewind, record, and playback if you lose your way Or just leave your nightlight on at night and you’ll hear me say That you’re sweet (that you’re sweet, that you’re sweet) You’re so incredibly sweet (you’re so sweet, you’re so sweet) ’cause you’re sweet (’cause you’re sweet, ’cause you’re sweet) You’re so incredibly sweet (you’re so sweet, you’re so sweet) ’cause your sweet

What do we do now? All the bands we loved are dead I always think of you But it won't be the same again Losing touch with friends from home Twenty-one, twenty-two These last few months I've been meaning to phone Twenty-two, twenty-three But every time I do It seems like I've got less to say to you I only go home twice a year Twenty-three, twenty-four Cause when I do it feels so weird Twenty-four, twenty-five Nothing's quite the same Except the Buckfast bottles and the rain CHORUS What do we do now Now we're ten years older The bands we loved are dead The bands we loved are dead I always think of you Whenever I smell cider But it won't be the same again We reminisce back days long gone Thirty-one, thirty-two We kicked about with Kappa tracksuits on Thirty-two, thirty-three But both our lives are changed And this conversation feels so strained That awkward pause at the end of the line Thirty-three, thirty-four I've got to go but let's catch up some time Thirty-four, thirty-five But time goes by so fast And we can't keep living in the past CHORUS Do you still drink Down the local Is the local still the local? Do you still see much of Coia? Now she's moved in with her girlfriend? What do we do now? All the bands we loved are dead

What do they know when they say I'm too young As I get older and until my life is done I'll be the one who had love that was true They all had nothing, and I have you We'll be together forever in love Together forever in love Together forever in love I'll be your reason for starting your day You'll be my true love in every way I'll always need you, I promise that now Through good and bad as long as this life will allow We'll be together forever in love Together forever in love Together forever in love My life is for living I'll spend on giving you All that I can My heart and my hand My life with you will shine brighter than gold Memories of heaven for when I get old Never again will I wanna run away I didn't think that I could ever feel this way We'll be together forever in love Together forever in love Together forever in love Together forever in love

So you wanna have sex, no strings attached I can't think of a better match Talk about me behind my back I wouldn't take any other bag You're so cute when you ignore me You're so cute when you ignore me I don't know why you defer me You're so cute when you ignore me Think it's so sweet when I call you on the phone And you pretend that you aren't at home I give me a metaphoric phone I don't know when to leave you alone You're so cute when you ignore me You're so cute when you ignore me I don't know why you defer me You're so cute when you ignore me So you wanna have sex, no strings attached I can't think of a better match Talk about me behind my back I wouldn't take any other bag You're so cute when you ignore me You're so cute when you ignore me I don't know why you defer me You're so cute when you ignore me You're so cute when you ignore me You're so cute when you ignore me I don't know why you defer me You're so cute when you ignore me

For so long, I loved you so shamelessly You were never sure if you really never wanted to fall Inside out 'cause I thought you were the same as me, you were just joking But I wasn't joking, 'cause I didn't know you at all I wanna know When will you be mine? Step by step and we're checking out the sound effects Are there pictures of skylab falling down where you are? Neck and neck and it always had the same effect, you know I mean it But you didn't mean it, so you didn't give me a call I wanna know When will you be mine? Yes, I wanna know When will you be mine? 'Cause I think about it all the time And it's party time and we're check-check-checking out the scenery And it's all inside 'til I find, find, find out what you mean to me And it's party time time and we're check check checking out the scenery Smoke-smoke-smoking all the cigarettes 'til you find, find, find out what it means to me I wanna know When will you be mine? Yes, I wanna know When will you be mine? It's not party time It's not party time And I think about it all the time

I'm tryin' to tell you somethin' 'bout my life Maybe give me insight between black and white And the best thing you've ever done for me Is to help me take my life less seriously It's only life after all, yeah Well darkness has a hunger that's insatiable And lightness has a call that's hard to hear I wrap my fear around me like a blanket I sailed my ship of safety 'til I sank it I'm crawling on your shores And I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains There's more than one answer to these questions Pointing me in a crooked line And the less I seek my source for some definitive The closer I am to fine The closer I am to fine And I went to see the doctor of philosophy With a poster of Rasputin and a beard down to his knee He never did marry or see a B-Grade movie He graded my performance, he said he could see through me I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind Got my paper and I was free I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains There's more than one answer to these questions Pointing me in a crooked line And the less I seek my source for some definitive The closer I am to fine The closer I am to fine, yeah I stopped by the bar at three A.M. To seek solace in a bottle, or possibly a friend And I woke up with a headache like my head against a board Twice as cloudy as I'd been the night before And I went in seeking clarity I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains We go to the doctor, we go to the mountains We look to the children, we drink from the fountain Yeah, we go to the Bible, we go through the work out We read up on revival, we stand up for the lookout There's more than one answer to these questions Pointing me in a crooked line And the less I seek my source for some definitive The closer I am to fine The closer I am to fine The closer I am to fine, yeah

The sandman is sending me a special gift A sleepy dream memory of our first kiss Cast a shadow in my direction Cast a shadow in my direction The sandman comes at night I have a request A snapshot dreamy keepsake of your embrace Cast a shadow in my direction Cast a shadow in my direction Cast a shadow in my direction Cast a shadow in my direction Cast a shadow over here We'll shadow plays We'll dig shallow graves In my shady shallow cave The shadow grows longer in my twilight sleep 'I wallow and remember you lock and key' Cast a shadow in my direction Cast a shadow in my direction Cast a shadow in my direction Cast a shadow in my direction Bring back shadow of your affection Cast a shadow in my direction Bring back shadow of your protection Cast a shadow... In my... direction

Maybe I just wanna fly Wanna live, I don't wanna die Maybe I just wanna breathe Maybe I just don't believe Maybe you're the same as me We see things they'll never see You and I are gonna live forever I said maybe I don't really wanna know How your garden grows 'Cause I just wanna fly Lately, did you ever feel the pain In the morning rain As it soaks you to the bone? Maybe I will never be All the things that I wanna be Now is not the time to cry Now's the time to find out why I think you're the same as me We see things they'll never see You and I are gonna live forever Maybe I don't really wanna know How your garden grows 'Cause I just wanna fly Lately, did you ever feel the pain In the morning rain As it soaks you to the bone Maybe I just wanna fly Wanna live, I don't wanna die Maybe I just wanna breathe Maybe I just don't believe Maybe you're the same as me We see things they'll never see You and I are gonna live forever Gonna live forever Gonna live forever We're gonna live forever Gonna live forever Gonna live forever Gonna live forever
