you wanna leave it but you can't forget about it
you wanna leave it but you can't forget about it
you wanna leave it but you can't forget about it
you wanna leave it but you can't forget about it

it's just the state of mind
it's just the state of mind
and mine is in a state of incomprehension
a lack of meaning and lack of attention

it's just a waste of time
it's just a waste of time
cause time is running out and i worry about you
i've got the feeling i'm hopeless around you

you wanna leave it but you can't forget about it
you wanna leave it but you can't forget about it
you wanna leave it but you can't forget about it
you wanna leave it but you can't forget about it

it's just the state of mind
it's just the state of mind
and mine is in a state of incomprehension
a lack of meaning and lack of attention

it's just a waste of time
it's just a waste of time
cause time is running out and i worry about you
i've got the feeling i'm hopeless around you

so uncharacteristic of you
to let me get so close to the mystery of you
it's all a misunderstanding you see
i never meant to let anybody get close to me
it can't have been easy on you to get to grips with an idea, an idea

so uncharacteristic of you
to let me get so close to the mystery of you

you wanna leave it but you can't forget about it

    General CommentI'm devastated that they've broken up. I never got to see them. =( They can so easily put into words all of these abstract feelings in my head, the ones I'm not smart enough to vocalise myself. I love some of these lines in this song so much.

    General CommentI saw them last may in Berlin, great show... I also love their ability to put up great lines, short but so meaningful - just like Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse does....
