[This is really rough, but I love this song, it's hard to decipher some of the meaning. Please add your suggestion, if you can]

You set yourself up again
run back to New York City sell yourself your new fame
yeah with eyes that could cut down the laws
but the camera will one day shoot you down
oh you're just a girl living inside a box
you dance the foxtrot down to the beat of your own drum


Ooohh I should have asked you to be mine
Ooohh, Yes, I think of it all the time
But it's hard, when you're picking up loose ends
Loose ends

Oh I met you when we were young
Pass by the eyes But we looked backed at the song
Tommy was a man who made the connection
I still see him when I can, he still mentions you
Ohh, the fractions of our heart, the lovers that tore us apart
and you're the one that did me the worse

Ooohh I should have asked you to be mine
Ooohh, You're still the princess of my mind
And it's hard, picking up loose ends

She was a family of eccentrics
of it was hard for her because they never ignored her
and still her father would have loved to adore her
and will do what I can to get back to her

Ooohh I should have asked her to be mine
Ooohh, Now she's the princess of our time
But it's hard, picking up loose ends

    defenitly think at the beginning though that he says
    but the camera will one day shoot you down.

    General CommentI love this song. So incredibly much. It's just so simple, telling a story, sweet, but there's something about it that completely gets me. Amazing!

    General CommentThis one is bittersweet, and the lyrics are gut wrenchingly familiar. My favorite from by the Kooks.

    General Commentthis is what I hear:


    You set yourself up again
    run back to New York City sell your new fame
    with eyes that could cut down the laws
    and the camera will one day shoot you down
    you're just a girl living inside of a dream
    be yourself and down to the beat of your drum, drum.


    Ooohh I should have asked you to be mine
    Ooohh, Yes, I think of it all the time
    And it's hard, hard, hard, hard
    picking up loose ends

    I met you when we were young
    Pass by the eyes But we looked backed at the song
    Tommy was a man who made our connections
    I still see him when I can, he always mentions you.
    They says those the fractions in our heart, lover is that tore us apart
    and i guess man she did you the worse (i dont know haha, thats what i hear)

    Ooohh, I should have asked you to be mine
    Ooohh, I still think of it all the time.
    And it's hard, hard, hard, hard
    picking up loose ends

    Come on x12

    She was from a family of eccentrics
    of it was hard for her because they never ignored her
    and her father he loved to adore her
    i bet he still does whatever he can, whatever it does just to get her back to him.

    Ooohh I should have asked her to be mine
    Ooohh, I still think of it all the time.
    And it's hard, hard, hard, hard
    picking up loose ends
