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, and someone hits the lights,
And honey, there you are.
Did you not see it, 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
That sets you apart;
That spins me and drops me like a boxer,
Grinning 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.
This 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 catch 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
That sets you apart;
That spins round and drops out like a missile,
Volatile and fissile,
But encased in all this metal,

Oh there?s something that I can?t describe
That sets you apart;
That spins me and drops me like a boxer,
Smiling at the knocks, yeah, and
Unconscious of the loss, yeah, but
Reaching for the ropes,
Grasping at the hope they give.
