Was it a girl when you wanted a boy?
Were you annoyed that the sequed didn't grab you like the first one?
Did you back the wrong horse?
Did your conscience lie?
Did they give the promotion to some other guy?
Did you gamble it all on red but lost it all?
Did someone put a dent in your crystal ball?
I don't need no help to work it out.

Cause every little thing we do is illogical
Every little thing we are is just because
Every little thing we thought we knew is a point of view
Don't try to get your head around it now.

Did someone spill a coffee on your new clean shirt?
And takes make you wonder why you bother to work?
Did your government lie when they sent you to war?
They say they didn't count buy they were keeping score.
Did someone take the candles off your birthday cake?
Did you think you'd arrived but you were already late?
I don't need no help to work it out.

Cause every little thing we do is illogical
Every little thing we are is just because
Every little thing we thought we knew is a point of view
Don't try to get your head around it now.

Cause this world is delicate and strange
but I love it, I love it all the same
Sometimes when I think of how it changed, how it changed.
I don't know why you had to go, but I miss your kisses
Don't try to explain, it's just a puzzle, it's a game.

I don't need no help to work it out
Don't try to get your head around it now
You know it's always been the same
It's alright, it's just a puzzle, it's a game

Every little thing we do
Every little thing we are it's just because
Every little thing we thought we knew
is just a point of view.
This world is delicate and strange
But I love it, I love it all the same
It's just a puzzle, a puzzle in a game
You got lost, bored of controls
997 channels, still there's nothing on
It's just a puzzle, it's a game.

    General CommentThis song is quite lovely and simple at the same time. It makes me smile how it mixes the line "I don't know why you had to go" with the rest of the lyrics that have nothing to do with love, but with every day life and its frustrations.
    In Darren's words: ""Every Little Thing" is a song I wrote with the genius Eg White (he and I wrote 'The Sun is always Blinding Me" on the new album and has a new song on the Kylie album 'X'). He's a massive Prince fan as am I and this track is a bit of an ode to 'Pop Life' and all things 21th Century that frustrate us."
