Tangled up in
Headphone lead
Hot rubber bleeds
Out of your Nikes
And onto the shop floor
Now walk like a claw

I draw air on napkins
You dribble down
Bright lit aisles
Scratching at your smile
And run your thumb along
The rims of tins
You use your hands like pins

I watch, drinking coffee

What music do you like?
I like anything that's good

(Can I ask you a question? Why me? Why?)

Filling up your boot
Your trolley sighs
As you make your goodbyes
You climb in your seat
And touch the steering wheel
And I wonder how you feel

I struggle with complex food

What music do you like?
I like anything that's good

From the carpark
You see the sea
The polythene sea

From the carpark
You see the sea
The polythene sea
(Original, Original)

From the carpark
You see the sea
The polythene sea

From the carpark
You see the sea
The polythene sea
The polythene sea

Ooooo, aaaaah.
(Original, Original...)

    General CommentThis song is kind of odd in the way that you don't really hear any reference to love or romance, but it still sounds really lovely and dreamy.

    At the moment i feel like this song is about someone who loves someone but doesn't understand it.
