[There are definitely parts where I was wrong / clueless... Please make suggestions.]

Is it hard to wish?
Drowned all your mongrel heart again
If they don't answer, would you want to be found out
You talk/duck through the window you're a blight on the town

Love is turning you out
Sliding windy route
Try to harness the waiting game
Bring nice matter down

And would it be wrong
To clamp down on your racing heart, love
??? To be found, love
It's not what you deserve

Love is turning you out
Sliding windy route
I Try to harness the waiting game
Bring nice matter down

Faster than you were going to
Turn out the lights and say get down
If you don't answer, would you want to be found, love?
Five days on trapped by a wave

Love is turning you out
Sliding winding route
Try to harness the waiting game
Bring nice matter down, down, down.

Back ???
You'll be cut down in a seedy stairway
If you don't answer, would you want to be found now?
Sucked from the bed to the window

Looking back on that time
Starting in the minds
What it is to be twenty nine
Fame sets your life down

Would it be wrong
Would it be wrong
To disappoint you now
Disappoint you now

    General CommentThis is what I think the lyrics are :

    Is it hard to wait?
    Drawn by your mongrel heart again
    If they don’t answer, would you want to be found out?
    You duck through the wind in your old blight on the town

    Love is turning you out
    Sliding worry round
    I try to warn its waiting game
    To bring that spectre down

    Would it be wrong
    To clamp down on your racing heart? Love
    And if they’d known, what sifted down to be found out?
    It’s not what you deserve

    Love is turning you out
    Sliding worry round
    I try to warn its waiting game
    To bring that spectre down

    Faster than you were going to allow
    Turn out the lights or say get out
    If you don't answer, would you want to be found, love?
    Five days on, trapped by a wave



    Love is turning you out
    Sliding worry round
    I try to warn this waiting game
    To bring that spectre down

    Black corn was soaking
    You'll be cut down in the seedy stairway
    If you don't answer, would you want to be found now?
    Sapped from the bed to the window

    Looking back on that time
    Starting in the minds
    What it is to be twenty nine
    Fame sets your life down

    Would it be wrong
    Would it be wrong
    To disappoint you now
    Disappoint you now
