It's way too late to be this locked inside ourselves
The trouble is, oh, that you're in love with someone else
It should be me
It should be me

Your sacred parts, your getaways
You come along on summer days
Tenderly
Tastefully

The coma in your heart's telling lies baby
Things change, my darling, and we'll glide on air
Asking you to open your eyes

You said today, you know exactly how I feel
I have my doubts, little girl, I'm in love with something real
It could be me that's changing

The coma in your heart's telling lies baby
Things change, my darling, and we'll glide on air
Asking you to open your eyes baby
Sugar in your smiling at the word

Love me now
I wanna hold you like a dove
I know a toast should be raised
I wanna hold you like a dove
Our love is raised

How I love you
Oh, in the evenings
When we are sleeping
We are sleeping
Oh, we are sleeping

The coma in your heart's telling lies baby
Things change, my darling, and we'll glide on air
Asking you to open your eyes baby
Sugar in your smiling at the word

Love me now
I wanna hold you like a dove
I know a toast should be raised
Hold you like a dove
Our love is raised
Our love is raised
Our love is raised
Our love is raised

    General Commenti can't believe no one has commented on this lyric yet, this has to be one of my favorite's from interpol.

    i think this song is basiclly about a couple who broke up and i wanna say because of her.
    she moved on quickly but he didn't in the begining because he was more into the relationship but he eventually moves on and now she's coming back to him saying she still loves him and what not but he doesn't really feel the same way anymore.

    kinda reminds me of my life.
    hah.
    :]

    General CommentThis is a different song from C'Mere, Avaliable on the rare fan LP Unknown Pleasure.

    A fantastic song, although i personally prefer its maturer brother C'Mere.

    General CommentI also think C'Mere is a little better than this one, more polished. The new verses seem less hurried and more in place.
    But this song is really nice too, I think they should've kept the "Love me now I wanna hold you like a dove" verse I really like how it fits with the music.
