Don't start a fight because you find it fun
Don't spoil it for everyone
Don't look up -
You'll see the dust on my ceiling
And I've other things to think about
We could just keep talking
But talking won't fix you
We're climbing up the hillside with sleep snapping at our heels

I met you at your house
You drove me in your car
You took us to the seaside
We didn't drive that far
We were anything but lonely -
No excuses this time
I was wrapped around your finger
And you were wrapped in mine

When you find my old costume
The one that fit me like a rubber glove
You found it in a junkyard
Shook your head
And said 'it reminds me of you'

She moves into your town
I was jealously green
Too much wine and sun -
Too much fun
I have to remind myself
That a heart is just a muscle
And our minds are just a seed
So I take me around this little country to forget you
Meet all kinds of people
And make all kinds of friends
The drop-side is roses for peanuts
And too much laying down in other people's beds

And when you find my old red shoes
The ones that broke on me
The day I met you
I threw them in your bedroom
Hit the wall
And said 'they remind me too much of you'
