She wrote my name, in her diary and today it came
and now I know how it feels to live behind the scenes
I know how it feels to kiss into the dream,
Of a girl who, likes to keep it fresh and new
Behind closed doors, on chequered floors
Down mahogany halls

This is what she said to me
This is what she said to me

If you want to be with me,
You’ve gotta leave that scene behind,
And if you want to be free
You’ve gotta push your friends aside
In the modern school of urban fantasy
Who’s best writers include, her and me
We get down on our knees and pray to thee
Leather black bound diary
She said David you’ll always be a baby brother
And you’ll always be a mother’s son
And you’ll always be somebody’s favourite pupil
But you will never be the man that I want

This is what she said to me
This is what she said to me

If you want to be with me,
You’ve gotta leave that scene behind,
And if you want to be free
You’ve gotta push your friends aside
You’ve gotta push, push, push your friends aside
Leave that scene behind
Push, push, push your friends aside
Leave that scene behind

    Lyric CorrectionShe wrote my name in her diary today again
    And I know how it feels
    To exist behind the scene
