lyrics

So there I am, a grin, a posture, and a lie,
When something sparkles in the corner of my eye,
And then it all goes quiet, someone hits the lights,
And honey, there you are.
Did you not see me, does this happen all the time?
Do I take a numbered ticket and stand in line?
God, you must collect these songs like a flower collects the light.
Well, here’s one more.

I can’t describe what it is
Sets you apart;
Spins me and drops me like a boxer,
Reeling at the knocks, yeah,
Unconscious of the loss

Until the next day, waking up, the world’s a different place.
My sense of colour’s back, my courage, and my grace,
And a sense that a day that’s spent without you is a waste,
A waste and a shame.
I never saw you coming, no I never felt a thing.
This is the last place that I ever thought I’d find you in.
It wasn’t my idea, it’s you - you never should have been so beautiful.

And was it something ... some kind of gremlin on the line?
Was it the way you caught the light?
Your natural aptitude for flight?
‘Cause I am failing.
I have failed to shake you off.
To reassert the even keel
That I had before you made me feel

There’s something that I can’t describe
Sets you apart;
Spins round and drops out like a missile,
Volatile and fissile,
Encased in all this metal,

There is something that I can’t describe
Sets you apart;
Spins me and drops me like a boxer,
Reeling at the knocks, yeah,
Unconscious of the loss, yeah,
Reaching for the ropes,
Grasping at the hope they give.
