I overheard two lovers row
Last night as the pub was filling
I could tell she felt like moving on
But he was just so happy chilling
Yeah he was just so happy chilling

It was then she said the hardest words
Goodbye and I'm sad to know you
His eyes cast to the floor
As he knew that she had no need of him
He he knew that she had no need of him

Cos he was always thinking in black and white
If they just stayed together it would be alright
And one day soon he's going to get a job
He's not always gonna be another slob
She doesn't see the world through his eyes
Cos for too many years she's worn his disguise
Yes for too many years she's worn his disguise

We're silent now and worlds apart
With thoughts of just confusion
The world today can tear the heart
Out of anyone's fresh union
out of anyone's fresh union

And so they both go separate ways
After it all it's over
She to the night, he to the day
Well they never really talked it over
No they never really talked it over

Cos she was always thinking in movie scenes
And they would lie together like in her dreams
And they'd both live together in a paradise
Like a true romance, it's gonna be alright
He doesn't see the world through her eyes
Cos for too many years he's worn her disguise
Yes for too many years he's worn her disguise

    General Commentthis basically sounds like a biopic of a couple who want completley different things and, as it says, they dont see the world through each others eyes this eventually leads to them breaking up- she wanted a fairytale paradise and he wanted to have fun
