So, Juliette, it simmered at the start
But I knew that we would go and break our hearts
So, oh well, my regret... we're bleeding worlds apart
We were destined to meet a fate called Juliette

Let it be known - I never wanted this, but whatever...

I never wanted you to be an accident
I never wanted you to breathe unhappiness
We're not in love but we'll keep trying

Wait. There's stomach ache and bruising to the back
When you smile your make-up cracks like porcelain
Go get your marigolds, marigolds and and axe
And we'll hitch-hike all the way to Bethlehem

    General Comment“but I knew that you would go and break our hearts”,
    “Wake with stomach ache and bruising to the back”?


    ‘There’s too many teenage sob-stories’
    ‘Never a thought for teenage abortion’
    ‘and each rhyme doesn’t get far from your high-school sweetheart’

    General CommentThese are definitely the right lyrics - they're on the EM website. But I like the possible lyric conections to other songs you suggested.

    General Commentthis song is so so addictive! seems to get better each time i hear it.

    think its just about how a couple thought they would be good together at the start of the relationship but then it sizzled out or he realised he didnt love her, but theyre staying together anyway; "we're not in love but we'll keep trying".

    thats my interpretation anyway.
