I look up, it's 10:15,
and what have I achieved?
A dog-end stubbed and an idea scrubbed,
and square one looming dangerously.
I've waited on your favour
for what seems a century,
I've hung round town,
kicked cans around,
This pauper's life is not for me but...

Highness how can you blame me?
When you play me off against your other lovers
Highness how can you blame me?
When you play me off against your other lovers

Life flits past my window
like the shadows 'cross my walls.
Patience stretched,
a hopeless wretch lies waiting on your regal call,
And ever since the day we first crossed paths
I must've crossed my heart
A thousand times along these lines,
yet still I worship from afar, but...

Highness how can you blame me?
When you play me off against your other lovers
Highness how can you blame me?
When you play me off against your other lovers

How can you say "I want you",
How can you say "I need you",
How can you say "I love you",
When Highness, you know it's not true?

How can you say "I want you",
How can you say "I need you",
How can you say "I love you",
When it's not true?

(instrumental)

Highness how can you blame me?
When you play me off against your other lovers
Highness how can you blame me?
When you play me off against your other lovers

Highness how can you blame me?
When you play me off against your other lovers
Highness how can you blame me?
When you play me off against your other lovers

How can you say "I love you"

    General CommentThis song is addicting. Bittersweet tale of being infatuated with a girl who doesn't feel the same way about him so, he denies his true feelings of needing, wanting and even loving her.

    General CommentI love this song. I went on this music course where two members of the band were teaching us. It was amazing, and I never forgot them. I was about 12 or something when I met them

    Then like 3 years later they popped up on TV!!!
