We did our best just to keep the rain off our heads
She was the tearaway, I was two steps away,
and always got the blame
And like the rainbow in the petrol-soaked slab
that's desperate to get out
What's the worst thing I could say?

If you keep love at an arms length
if you keep love at an arms length
so you can hear the whispers to you
but it's not close enough to hurt you

To have and to hold is to love and to loathe yeah I know
but we've already thrown every stick and stone
and tele remote and phone
And now I'm backed in a corner, receptors blocked,
Eye's tight shut by your door that's locked
Well, what could I know

Bang your stupid heads together
if you can't get along much better
You've got far too much to lose

Bang your stupid heads together
if you can't get along with eachother
What d'you suppose to do?

If you keep love at an arms length
if you keep love at an arms length
so you can hear the whispers to you
but it's not close enough to hurt you
If you keep love at an arms length
if you keep love at an arms length
so you can hear the whispers to you
but it's not close enough to hurt you
If you keep love at an arms length
if you keep love at an arms length
so you can hear the whispers to you
but it's not close enough to hurt you
If you keep love at an arms length
if you keep love at an arms length
so you can hear the whispers to you
but it's not close enough to hurt you
If you keep love at an arms length
if you keep love at an arms length
so you can hear the whispers to you
but it's not close enough to hurt you
