I can’t describe, it’s from deep down inside and I can’t get rid of it
Broken I slide cos it’s filling up my mind and I can’t shake off of it
I was king for a day, does it matter anyway? Cos I’m a fool for my lifetime
Unwanted dreams, of what might have been floating through my mind

Well I hope you’re happy now cos I think I’m cracking up and there’s a fire inside my mind
You know that note you wrote was another guitar I broke just trying to read between your lines
The girl I thought I knew was already through cos she was moving up a class
I guess the love we had was already dead but I didn’t let go of my part
You know it’s killing me slowly
You know it’s killing me slowly

My heart’s like tissue and when you were blue, you dried your eyes on me
It made you feel better, but the trouble with tissue paper is that it tears so easily
Hanging out with your new friends, following your new trends dressed up like a magazine
You better tread carefully, oh yeah tread warily cos they’ll use you like you used me

Well I hope you’re happy now cos I think I’m cracking up and there’s a fire inside my mind
You know that note you wrote was another guitar I broke just trying to read between your lines
The girl I thought I knew was already through cos she was moving up a class
I guess the love we had was already dead but I didn’t let go of my part
You know it’s killing me slowly
You know it’s killing me slowly

Well you couldn’t stop, a year at the top, then you fell so heavily
Cos the child in your arms don’t know where he belongs, that wasn’t so clever see
You traded your life, for a moment in the light, but now you’re back again
You rejected my love, gave me the shove, but the writing on the wall said

Synth Solo

Well are you happy now cos you’ve gone and mucked it up and you’ve got to live with what you’ve got
I couldn’t have you back, cos I’m not like that but I’d forgive you if you’d only ask
You threw my name away for a wiff of French Champagne and some guy who had no guts
I hate these memories, but I can only think of what could have been between us
You could have taken it slowly
We should have taken it slowly
