you chose a giant step - caught your eye
guaranteed sweetness that you thought broken
and you were not fine
and bearing in mind
other ones that you could have wed
and hopefully dread

and i wouldn't dare to
bring out this
awful bliss

no, I wouldn't dare to
bring out this
awful bliss

no, I wouldn't dare to
bring out this
awful bliss

    General CommentI think its about someone getting married. And the singer is jealous of the love that the person found, but won't open himself up to love. He describes it as "awful bliss" because its what he wants and thinks about all the time, but at the same time it kills him. He wouldn't dare love because it brings out too much pain with it

    General Commenthe obviously says "awfulness" instead of "awful bliss" once or twice, "your awfulness" the second time

    Lyric CorrectionAmazing song - even though I can't find Ray Davies anywhere in there. Well...

    @helooksdaft; I'll say you're on to something.
    I believe - though not entirely certain - I can hear Sprout singing the second time around: "No, I wouldn't dare to bring out your awfulness". Just a guess, though.

    General CommentListening to it in FLAC and with good headphones, I hear 'awful bliss' all three times.
