Is that your washing powder,
Little voice I hear getting louder,
It's one stupid thing to remind me,
Of somebody I thought was behind me,

Yes, they came back, and pushing the knife in,
Slow down, you're caught in a whirlwind,
I will hire a private detective,
Trying to work it out in the end dear,

Hey, don't just stand there,
There's no point in empty hands,
And wheres your boy tonight,
I wonder do you realise,
What you have done,
Cos I'm not pretending,
No more tricks and no more games,
My tail's between my legs now,

Yes, you keep talking and talking,
Looking nice and isn't it boring,
Then somebody else,
Who's wearing your perfume,
Walks by and that really confuses me,
So come back,
Stop pushing the knife in,
Slow down, you're caught in a whirlwind,
I will hire a private detective,
Trying to work it out in the end dear,

Hey, don't just stand there,
There's no point in empty hands,
And wheres your boy tonight,
I wonder do you realise,
What you have done,
Cos I'm not pretending,
No more tricks and no more games,
My tail's between my legs now,
And look at your hair,
Well that's not you,
And you paint your face,
I still see through,

It's just your washing powder,
Like a voice i hear getting louder,
One stupid thing to remind me,
Of somebody i thought was behind me,

Yes, they came back, and pushing the knife in,
Slow down, you're caught in a whirlwind,
I will hire a private detective,
Trying to work it out in the end dear,

Hey, just don't stand there,
There's no point in empty hands,
And wheres your boy tonight,
I wonder do you realise,
What you have done,
Cos I'm not pretending,
No more tricks and no more games,
My tail's between my legs now,

It's just your washing powder,
Little voice i hear getting louder,
One stupid thing to remind me,
Of somebody i thought was behind me,

    General CommentIn my opinion this song is about a woman that broke up with the singer, even though the singer is still in love with her, and he has no idea why she's ended it. He's trying to move on by not thinking about her but everyday he is reminded of her by things like washing powder that she used or the perfume that she wears and it really hurts him to think of her and of how lonely he now is. he wants to get back together with her but she has already found someone else and has nothing to offer him anymore. She has changed but he still loves her, regardless.
    This song means a lot to me, seeing as what I think the song is about is pretty much word for word what I'm going through. :/
