Please don't go crazy if I tell you the truth
No, you don't know what happened and you never will
If you don't listen to me while I talk to the wall
This blanket is freezing, it's been out in the hall
Where you've had me for hours 'till I'm sure what I want
But darling I want the same thing that I wanted before
So sweetheart tell me what's up, I won't stop, no way.

Please keep your hands down and stop raising your voice
It's hardly what I'd be doing if you gave me a choice
It's a simple suggestion, can you give me some time?
So just say yes or no, why can't you shoulder the blame?
'Cause both my shoulders are heavy from the weight of us both
You're a big boy now, so let's not talk about growth
You've not heard a single word I have said...
Oh, my god.

Please take it easy it can't all be my fault
I haven't made half the mistakes that you've listed so far
Baby, let me explain something, it's all down to drugs
Atleast I remember taking them and not a lot else
It seems I've stepped over lines you've drawn again, and again
But if the ecsasty's in the wit is definitely out
Dr. Jekyll is wrestlin' Hyde for my pride

Boooooorinnnng! And the lyrics suck. I feel like he's singing about his shopping list or something - it's got about as much flow and enegry.
Thought it was Donovan. Guess I am stuck in the 60s. Listenable enough.
Well, I like this song and the rest of the album too. Most of it, anyway.
Blah. da da da da da da da ......
:yawn: , but OK for a slacking kind of day.

There must be, 'cause they certainly don't put it out on their recordings. :sleep: They make Coldplay sound like AC/DC. CFGGAGFCFGAGF...what songwriting. :rolleyes: Abacab was more original.

It DOES work fine as a single. Haven't I recently heard this on a Grey's Anatomy commercial?
ew. this is awful.
Ahhh, Snow Patrol. I quite like a few of their songs, this one included, the only trouble I have is listening to them in a row, which is why I also have trouble listening to their CD. Still, a very likeable track. :)

there's no rating for "dumb"! (edited 10/4/04) rcarr is correct though. I just heard Bill play "Somewhere a Clock is Ticking", which I recall rating very highly quite a while ago. Brilliance and crap, from the same disc...It's not like that's never happened before!

With Greyhound you can go anywhere in the continental US for much less than flying!!

Hmmm, why is this here? This is the first song on the album and it works best in the context of what follows. Presented on its own like this it is rather dull and pointless. There are far better cuts from this album, such as the brooding and magnificent "Somewhere A Clock Is Ticking".
