Oh winter sets in and it's gripped at my neck
And rowing boats and tape cassettes sail south with the wind
And launderettes and lucky bets are among the list of things that have left

I have a cold again
And once more, stapled to the floor
Staring at bright white screens and thinking of boys with hearts of stone

There's a poly-glider plane hung from my lampshade
And it's nose-dived at nothing
It's fading under light strain and a pink ribbon's hung limp around its belly

Winter's setting thick just beyond these rooftops
And the spires puncture the sky like sandstone needles
And I'm weary of the wind

And my throat's all scratched from cigarettes
And my heart is heavy

If only you knew
(Shoop shoop shoop shee doop doop doop daaaaa oooooh)
If only you knew
(Shoop shoop shoop shee doop doop doop daaa ooh)

(Ahh ahh ah, aaaaah ahh)

Sunday was so beautiful
(Bada da ba ba, bada da ba ba)
When the sun hit panes of glass and my knees bent down the street
(Bada da ba ba, bada da ba ba)
And rattling in the cold
(Bada da ba ba, bada da ba ba)
And the world seemed violet behind dark glasses
(Bada da ba ba, bada da ba ba)

Ultra-violet
(Bada da ba ba)
Like the skin that's stained under my eyes
(Bada da ba ba, bada da ba ba)
After Saturday night
(Bada da ba ba)

(Dada da da daaaa aaah)

Well I haven't a heart to break
So I'm off to hibernate
Well I haven't a heart to break
So I'm off to hibernate

This lockdown is precise
Once more, stapled to the floor
The sun was ferocious, the cat that bit my heels
And it ripped right through me

The floor is a sea of me - mascara, eyeliner, blown-on tissues, beads, CD's, jumper, empty cans, iron, books, remote control, glasses case, mug, paperweight, stereo, typewriter, drawing board, action tracker, shoe, pen, mitten, watch, ticket, vinyl, scarf, sock, lantern, slipper, beads, brush

Iron, book, remote control
Hope I die before I get old
Jumper, CD, glasses case
I haven't got a heart to break

Iron, book, remote control
Hope I die before I get old
Jumper, CD, glasses case
I haven't got a heart to break

Iron, book, remote control
Hope I die before I get old
Jumper, CD, glasses case
I haven't got a heart to break

(Wooooooooooooo)

Well I haven't a heart to break
So I'm off to hibernate
Well I haven't a heart to break
So I'm off to hibernate

I'm off to hibernate
