We’re desperate in common
In spite of our names
Glowing in a room of Christmas lights and candle flames
We’re sick starting over
Missing our cues
If promise rings on ancient strings
Ain’t no one got a clue

‘Cause oooh lover
I only sing for you
So what if we’re outta tune
With the rest of the world

We’re humming in circles
Cleaning our plates
Dreaming out our choruses
And slow sad middle eights

A tenner between us
And nothing to lose
By leaving everyone behind us
Silent and confused

But oooh lover
They ain’t me and you
So what if we’re outta tune
With the rest of the world

So come on darling stay with me
Let’s cut through the crowd
Make the most of being lost
In what time we’re allowed

We’re desperate in common
And missing the jokes
Rollin’ through the eyes of snakes
And in the rings of smoke
Strainin’ our voices
To no consequence
Cause maybe baby loves the cost of our irrelevance

And oooh lover
That’s all I want to do
So what if we’re outta tune
With the rest of the world
