Stand here rehearsing my words upon the floor
So when I meet you by chance I can sing them like I never have before
I try surprise you with my sharp subtle wit
But you wont realise I spent the last four months over it
Ran out of words and I practised ahead
I'd like to simply respond to the things that you said
This is the phase that is worrying me
I've dropped my words on the floor can you pick them up for me?
I've dropped my words on the floor can you pick them up for me?

And I like a conversation but this one's an examination
And I just made an explanation of why I'm here
It's like me to be a little to hard upon the sleeve
I've dropped my words on the floor can you pick them up for me?
I've dropped my words on the floor can you pick them up for me?

Yeah I'm not gonna lie I don't mind if they are broke
As long as you don't follow you must know that's not what I want
Cos the evening as I gaze and I wont ever change (?)
It's the sight of you following them away (?)

Yeah I'm not gonna lie I don't mind if they are broke
As long as you don't follow you must know that's not what I want
Cos the evening as I gaze and I wont ever change (?)
It's the sight of you following them away (?)

These are the words that I dropped on the floor
Said these are the words that I dropped on the floor
Cos these are the words that I dropped on the floor
Yeah these are the words that I dropped on the floor
I don't know where they are anymore

    General CommentBrilliant song. :)
    Most likely about spending hours pondering all of the witty and intelligent things you're going to say to that certain someone, and then when it comes to it, getting completely and utterly tongue tied, going mute and looking like an absolute idiot.

    He's amazing live too, raw talent.

    General CommentJust what I think...


    Stand here rehearsing my words upon the floor
    So when I meet you by chance I can say them like I never have before
    I'll try surprise you with a sharp subtle wit
    But you wont realise I spent the last four months over it
    Ran out of words that I've practised ahead
    I'll have to simply respond to the things that you said
    This is the phase that is worrying me
    I've dropped my words on the floor can you pick them up for me?
    I've dropped my words on the floor can you pick them up for me?

    And I like a conversation but this one's an examination
    And I just made an explanation of why I'm here
    It's like me to wear a little bit too much heart upon the sleeve
    I've dropped my words on the floor can you pick them up for me?
    I've dropped my words on the floor can you pick them up for me?

    Yeah I'm not gonna lie I don't mind if they all go
    As long as you don't follow you must know that's not what I want
    across the evening haze, as I gaze at what'll never change
    The horrid sight of you following them away

    Yeah I'm not gonna lie I don't mind if they all go
    As long as you don't follow you must know that's not what I want
    Across the evening haze I gaze at what'll ever change
    The same old sight of you following them away

    These are the words that I dropped on the floor
    Said these are the words that I dropped on the floor
    Cos these are the words that I dropped on the floor
    Yeah these are the words that I dropped on the floor
    I don't know where they are anymore
