In a foreign place, the saving grace was the feeling,
That it was a heart that he was stealing,
Oh he was ready to impress and the fierce excitement,
The eyes are bright he couldnt wait to get away,
I bet the juliet was just the icing on the cake,
Make no mistake no,

And even if somehow we could have shown you the place you wanted,

Well I'm sure you could have made it that bit better on your own,
And I bet she told a million people that she'd stay in touch,
Well all the little promises they dont mean much,
When theres memories to be made,
And I hope you're holding hands by new years eve,
They made it far too easy to believe,
That true romance cant be acheived these days,

And even if somebody could have shown you the place you wanted,
Well I sure you could have made it that bit better on your own,
You are the only ones who know

    General CommentHow has no one commented on this song?

    I love this song, it has a nice touch of hopeless romance with lines like

    "They made it far too easy to believe,
    That true romance cant be achieved these days"

    Memorythe romance of this song, the sorrow, there's something so nostalgic that gets me every time I listen, I'd say one of the best from arctic monkeys
