"Clarinet" as written by Emma Pollock, Paul Savage, Stewart Henderson and Alun Trevor Woodward....
Take the easy way out and I'll meet you at my roof
Making intimacy is an art form of mine
Say hello, say goodbye, say whatever I'm feeling
Fingers crossed, there's no point in these lies
'cause you're getting nothing, 'cause everything's lies
Don't be scared in the morning
Just be scared for tonight
Lonely girls live along there
They wish
They dream

Hanging out of my window I don't at the weekend
Onion badges the worst cherryade it's alright
These are times I can't see now what we have to get
It's not crass, I'm not talking of doves
It's just I'm afraid I forgot what I love
Don't be scared in the morning
Just be scared for tonight
Lonely girls live along there
They wish and they dream but they live in us fly

No I won't be your friend and I'll die if you're right
I've had friends who are shy
But I don't count on views
I'm not heaven, you are
Silver coins land on the floor


I don't know if you're right or you're wrong, oh I don't care
Let's go out for the night, get some chips in the car
Tell me what you've been reading the day and the TV
Make me laugh for a while when I fret
Then let me remember, I cannot forget
Don't be scared in the morning
Just be scared for tonight
Lonely girls live alone here
They wish and they dream but they live in us fly

No I won't be your friend and I'll die if you're right
I've had friends who are shy
But I don't turn the views
I'm not heaven, you are
Silver coins land on the floor.

    General CommentCan't believe how badly transcripted this beautiful song is!!!! These are a closer stab at the lyrics:

    Take the easy way out and I'll meet you at my life
    Naked intimacy is an art form of mine
    Say hello, say goodbye, say whatever I'm feeling
    Fingers crossed, there's no point in these lies
    Cos you're getting nothing, cos everything's lies
    Don't be scared in the morning
    Just be scared for tonight
    Lonely girls live for longer
    They wish
    They dream

    Hanging out of my window at dawn at the weekend
    Onion bhajis, the Byrds, cherryade, it's alright
    These are times I can't see now what we are together
    It's not crass, I'm not talking of doves
    It's just I'm afraid I forgot what I love
    Don't be scared in the morning
    Just be scared for tonight
    Lonely girls live for longer
    They wish and they dream but to live they must fly

    No I won't be your friend and I'll die if you're right
    I have had friends who are shy
    But I don't count on views (???)
    I'm not heaven, you are
    Silver coins land on the floor

    I don't know if you're right or I'm wrong or I don't care
    Let's go out for the night, get some chips in the car
    Tell me what you've been reading, the day and the TV
    Make me laugh for a while when I fret
    Then let me remember, I cannot forget
    Don't be scared in the morning
    Just be scared for tonight
    Lonely girls live for longer
    They wish and they dream but to live they must fly

    No I won't be your friend and I'll die if you're right
    I have had friends who are shy
    But I don't turn the views
    I'm not heaven, you are
    Silver coins land on the floor

    General CommentI think this song's about the transition between being in a fairly casual relationship and a more serious one, and wondering if the compromise is worth it.
