Baby, baby I've been banned from dreaming about you
I've been banned from going to an ex
Standing outside
Looking at the stills of you

Babe, you were at your best
??? suits you
Alas
No roses in your eyes, kisses of milk
Lips shaking like you're gonna cry

So I'm writing a song and I'm getting a lot of work done
I smoke two packs a day
I write in my diary, hang out with my dog

Hey fella, I've been banned from thinking about you
I've been banned from even saying your name
History changed like Russia in the seventies
I see you in her car, see you at parties
Then you moved, don't see you anymore
The town is a drag, a rock without a diamond

So I'm writing a song and I'm getting a lot of work done
I smoke two packs a day
I'm playing a lottery, walking with my dog

Yeah, I'm writing a song and I'm singing around the kitchen
Now I'm winning at the pub quiz on a Tuesday
So long
So long
So long

    General CommentBeautiful song. Sounds like it's just a slightly out of tune piano, with cello, horn and double-tracked vocals. I love "History changed like Russia in the seventies."

    I hear:
    "Babe, you are at your best."
    "I'm playing a lottery, walking with my dog."
    "Winning at the pub quiz on a Tuesday."
    "The town is a drag, a rock without a diamond."
