These days, the place we find romance in is the back seat of our cars
Through steamy windows and handprints, we see the romance is gone
When we're finished we sit back and put the radio on
To fill the awkwardness which shouts "I do not know who you are"

So you take her club and then you tread on her feet
You give her your last cigarette, she puts it out on the street
She says, "I care about my lungs, more that you care for your teeth
Mr. Yellow, go away, and please stop hassling me."

Tonight, it appears
Romance is a stubbed out cigarette
Burn a hole, burn a hole, burn a hole, in your pocket
When you're coughing up blood, well, she knows how you want it then
Well, she knows how you want it then

Mate, it seems there's no turning back, now that she’s met your parents
Well, it's game set and match
All of your friends are convinced you've been tied to the tracks
She is full steaming ahead turning you into your dad
You haven't been to the pub in a month and a half, you're up at 8 in the morning
Your friends are still at the bar
Her toothbrush is in the sink, she's slowly moving in
First her socks and then her straighteners and then she wants a ring

Tonight, it appears
Romance is a stubbed out cigarette
Burn a hole, burn a hole, burn a hole, in your pocket
When you're coughing up blood, well, she knows how you want it then
Well, she knows how you want it then

(Easy, easy, easy, you shut up)
She’s got you breaking your backbone
We liked her so much better when she was unknown
Can't find a reason to hold on, you shut up, let's move on
She's got the key to your front door, and we're not coming over anymore
So we'll just leave it and move on

Ah, ah, ah, it appears
Romance is a stubbed out cigarette
Burn a hole, burn a hole, burn a hole, in your pocket
When you're coughing up blood, well, she knows how you want it then
Well, she knows how you want it then
