Up on the stand, the society meeting
that was the way, was the way that I found you
Drunk after work, hearing the late night feelings
that was the way, was the way that I found you

Sat in the crowd, watching the women's tennis
that was the way, was the way that I found you
Saw who you were, picking up from the canvas
that was the way; I was wrapped around you

Met you while you were switching on
and checked your box on the blue coupon
that was how... I... found...

Up on the stand, the society meeting
that was the way, was the way that I found you
Drunk after work, hearing the late night feelings
that was the way; i was wrapped around you

Kicked your wheel in the midday sun
and saved your place in the peloton
that was how... I... found...

Sat in the crowd, watching the women's tennis
that was the way, was the way that I found you
Saw who you were, picking up from the canvas
that was the way; I was wrapped around you

You still don't know what I want
Picked up your book at a street kiosk
and that's how... I... found...

Up on the stand, the society meeting
that was the way, was the way that I found you
Late night feelings travel South for the winter
to leave you this way, the way I found you

Met you while you were switching on
and checked the box on the blue coupon
That was how... I... found...

    General CommentThe bit that goes 'met you while you were switching on/ and checked your box on the blue coupon' makes me think of a mail order sex robot. But it doesn't make any sense in the context of the rest of the song, so scrap that.

    General CommentI might be wrong, but it sounds more like "Late night feelings travel south for the winter" than "trying to set for the winter", which if that's the case, almost sounds like a veiled reference to masturbation. Probably way off on that, though. Seems like it could be, though.
