Desire Be Desire Go

Feel it come
I don't know how long it's gonna stay with me
I'll let desire be
Desire go

Dare I face the real world

Everyday
Back and forth
What's it for?
What's it for?
Back and forth
Everyday

Everyday
Back and forth
What's it for
I don't know
I'll get out, won't have to...

Check my watch

I don't have the verve to belong to this dead side
Why I ever tried
I don't know

    Lyrical palindrome! An intentional means of representing "the back and forth"...

    Lyric CorrectionYou missed a change in the lyrics following the second "back and forth" part.

    The second time he sings it he ends it with "whats it for, i don't know, i forget, try to let desire be, desire go" in contrast to the first time where he sings "I'll get out, won't have to..."

    General CommentKevin Parker's voice is so lennon-esque. Hints of Paperback Writer here.

    General CommentTo me it sounds more like George Harrison's "Wonderwall" stuff. I love it
