lyrics

Oh, it’s odd, when I picture you at our school,
Shying your way through a hostile playground,
Who would have pictured you in that dress,
Famous and fearless?

In the years you’ve been away from our town,
We’ve gathered these families; yeah, we’ve put our heads down,
And the dust that settles all over these towns
Has dusted us too, top to ground.

And the colour flew from us to you…

Turn around, take a bow,
Staged and steady - oh, where are those idiots now?
And turn your back on the crowd
Listen out, honey, who’d dare laugh at you now?

Our cigarette break conversational guest,
Covered in lights, all eyes and weightlessness.
We changed so slowly you’d never have guessed
Heavy and lidless.

And the air it flew from us to you...

Turn around, take a bow,
Staged and steady - oh, where are those idiots now?
And turn your back on the crowd
Listen out, honey, who?d dare laugh at you now?

And I’m tongue-tied and deep-fried in front of you
And I have no idea how to talk to you
You should never return
To lit fireworks
If you don’t want to get burned.

Turn around take a bow,
Staged and steady, oh, where are those idiots now?
Turn your back on the crowd
Listen out, honey, who'd dare laugh at you now?

Turn your back on the crowd,
Staged and steady, oh, where are those idiots now?
Turn your back on the crowd
Listen out, honey, who?d dare laugh at you now?
