Clockwork is usually the way good things work
But if you're someone like me, then clockwork is worst
So someone please tell me I'm doing no wrong
And someone please tell me we didn't write this song

Now I can't even tell
I can't even tell
The difference between you, her friend and her
So take me home tonight, take me home tonight
Take me home tonight, take me home tonight
Keep me as far away from her

And I do use the memories of us
But I use them more, more like a drug
So doctor please help me and make them understand
If there was one sweet girl, you bet I'd be her man

But now I can't even tell
I can't even tell
The difference between you, her friend and her
So someone kill me tonight, someone kill me tonight
So someone kill me tonight, someone kill me tonight
And me, my mind's with her

Aww, Kim we were kids, you angel of a girl
And Julie just seduced me when I was a little boy
And Jen was just weird and Becky was so nice
It all happened so damm fast, one night after a night
But all day, it should stop right now
But after you left, it was my lack of falling down
And Mary was just fucked
And the girl who had no name
And Chloe always told me I took away the pain
And Robin, we we're mostly drunk and at times it was a rush
And the rest were well I was halfway there
Alone and all messed up

And I looked each one in the eye
And I looked each one in the eye
And I looked each one in the eye
And I looked each one in the eye
And I looked each one in the eye
And I looked each one in the eye
And I looked each one in the eye but it was never you
No, it was never you
No, it was never you

    General CommentI love BDATKT so much, great song.
    I think it's at the end of a relationship and he's going over all the girls he's been with and how the this girl he's just broken up with was really something special.

    General Commenti have to disagree with you jellobiafrafan... this song is about how he broke up with a girl and he cant get over her although he is trying as shown by the lines "And I do use the memories of us, But I use them more, more like a drug." He tries going out with girls after as shown by the lines where he lists them all but none of them can compare to her although he tried; he looked each one in the eye and tried to make it work, but it was never as good as her.

    General CommentIts him going over all the girls he went out with, and broke up with. But he didn't break up with this girl... "And I looked each one in the eye but it was never you" I looked each one in the eye meaning he looked each one in the eye and broke up with them, "but it was never you" meaning he didn't do that to her.
