Only if you're certain
That I'm the perfect human
Only if the time frame
Will never get the blame

Only from your heartbeat
Only words in concrete
Never call to tell me
The beat went out of time

‘Cos I’m a lazy quitter
I panic and I dither
I’ll only lose your patience
You’ll only find me rude

But I’ve the perfect body
For you to flip and carry
And all your friends will love me
‘Cos I put in the time

I know you think you're only
Trying to love me
But I can't take a retreat
I hope you understand

    General CommentHas anyone else noticed similar lyrics in songs from across the years of their back catalogue?

    In this, Rebecca mentions how she's perfect to be 'flipped' (I'm not sure if she is referencing sex or something innocent which I can't work out)

    In their newish song Not Mine To Love, Rebecca sings how she has a lover who 'flips her over' like her ex lover never would (once again this has inferences to sex?)

    And in Sorry About The Doom, she sings about hearts beating out of time and in this she also talks about hearts beating out of time

    Proper love Slow Club
