"Favours" as written by and Pollock Henderson....
V1
Started to fight
But I took off in fright
Could not believe
That she didn't chase me
V2
Climbed on her back
With an ambush attack
Down came the force
And down came the briefcase

V3
Quiet before
Then you came to the fore
Not unsurprised
Still happy to see you

V4
You know there's no chance
Not a sniff of romance
And I'm thinking this is the end of the line

Chorus
And you're feeling fine
Are you looking for favours
Returned for your crime
Help me to stand
Help me to say
That I don't want to be here
I don't want to stay
I just want away

V5
A hit for a feel
With unconquered appeal
You locked the door
And I started to tremble

V6
Touch without touch
Are we feeling too much
I can't decide
If I'm feeing able
V7
Eyes that don't meet
Are we too scared to speak
I can't provide
What you are requesting

V8
You know there's no chance
Not a sniff of romance
And I'm thinking this is the end of the line

Chorus
And you're feeling fine
While you're looking for favours
Returned for your crime
Help me to stand
Help me to say
That I don't want to be here
I don't want to stay
I just want away

(M8)

Chorus
And I, I'll try to feel fine
While I'm taking orders from bottles of wine
Help me to stand
Help me to say
That I don't want to be here
I just want away

Touch without touch
Feel without feel
Are we both really hoping
This just isn't real
Help me to stand
Help me to say
That I don't want to be here
I don't want to stay
I can't give today

    General CommentOh god, I just simply love this song, I just wonder why it's (The Delgados I mean) not popular. Poor Indie bands.

    But I definitely love the part "And I, I'll try to feel fine while I'm taking orders from bottles wine"

    General Commentto me it's about a relationship failing with the person, and knowing it won't work out, but at the same time wanting the person to follow you when you leave, and hoping somehow the person can make things right, or at least to help you let go of them.

    basically, the person talking seems to love the other person, but is struggling so much with it that they think it's better for her to leave... but she's having a hell of a time leaving at all.

    General CommentThis song is reeeeeeally sombre. It details someone's girlfriend finding out that her boyfriend was either cheating or flirting with someone else, so she decks the girl, but gets freaked and runs off.
    "Started to fight, but I took off in fright
    Could not believe that she didn't chase me"
    The guy meets her back at their place, presumably, and they "make up".
    "Then you came to the fore
    Not unsurprised, still happy to see you"
    But something is clearly dead. They try to have sex, but she can't do it, so she drinks the rest of the night off.
    "Touch without touch, are we feeling too much?
    I can't decide if I'm feeing able"
    "And I, I'll try to feel fine
    While I'm taking orders from bottles of wine"
    The fact that this song resonates with me this much says a bit too much about my last relationship, lol.
