Yeah the paint is getting thicker
The pictures setting quicker (?)
And now they take like stickers
As bold as brass no flicker
You're tryna hold so tight
To what you've done for fear of flight
'Cos everyone forgets
Yeah one day it'll flee their heads

And I shake my head as I make the bed
As I make the bed as I make it
I shake my head as I make the bed.
And I shake my head as I make the bed
As I make the bed as I make it
Oh no it don't need said.

A sudden burst of love
Lights up every bit of life once dull
Just as you get a hold
That's when you hear it's time to go
Oh trust me to find
Everything I want where I can't have it right
It's just that awful dip
When it clicks thats the end of this trick

And I shake my head as I make the bed
As I make the bed as I make it
I shake my head as I make the bed.
And I shake my head as I make the bed
As I make the bed as I make it
Oh no it don't need said.

Just as you get a hold,
Thats when you hear it's time to go

And we shake our heads as we make the bed
As we make the bed as we make it
Shake our heads as we make the bed
And we shake our heads as we make the bed
As we make the bed as we make it
Oh no it don't need said.

And we shake our heads as we make the bed
As we make the bed as we make it (Oh no it don't need said)
Shake our heads as we make the bed (Oh no it don't need said)
And we shake our heads as we make the bed
As we make the bed as we make it (Oh no it don't need said)
Oh no it don't need said.

It don't need said

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful.
    I think it's about tiny moments of realisation.

    PS: I think you've got the line correct with the (?) next to it, but there's a tiny correction for this "Lights of every bit of life once dull" in that it should be "up" instead of "of". :)
