you were dancing like a dying matador
amongst an armada of four by fours
we were running in the morning
from the land of lego
fugitives of rainbow road
where all the golden pavestones littered rainbow glow
but if it's every-fucking-where you go
then surely it's no rainbow

no 'hi there's or 'how do you do?'s
just a blur when i was introduced to you
no chats of weather or dissertation deadlines
i knew we were leaving
yeah, we were leaving
me and madeleine

and now i'm scribbling chick-lit-tle hearts
i tell my friends and they all rip me apart
paper aeroplanes launched across the bar
with piss-take love notes
embarrassing to say the least
peeling the label of your orange reef
we made a swift exit at double speed
discussing rainbows

no 'hi there's or 'how do you do?'s
just a blur where i was introduced to you
no chats of weather or dissertation deadlines
i knew we were leaving
yeah, we were leaving
me and madeleine
i knew we were leaving
yeah, we were leaving
me and madeleine
i knew we were leaving
yeah, we were leaving
me and madeleine
