There was something about the way she whispered,
"Is this where my heart is?"
I thought, 'please don't ask that question,
You know I have no answer'
The hand that falls upon my knee
There's an awkward silence that proceeds again,
It was again and again,

But you had to go and bring it up,
Just like it wasn't awkward enough,
Her eyes were red, her cares so free,
Her skin as white as leprosy
I'll cut you out and stop the rot,
A white rat in a sea of black,
But I'm not

Look I'm tired
I warned you it may take a while
Have you been trying too hard,
Just trying too hard to impress?

If there is something that encrypted,
then it must not be decoded,
You were looking for an answer,
I'm afraid you're on your own here
You had to go and get involved,
The last stand of the know it all
You must know it all round here?
But you had to go and make it up,
Was it not complicated enough?
There's trouble in the broken rank,
An opportunist takes her chance
Look I don't know what I should do
If I was you, what I would do is I'd just... say
I'd say

Look I'm tired
I warned you it may take a while
Look this is need to know,
And you're on a need to know basis

Look I'm tired
I warned you it may take a while
Have you been trying too hard,
Just trying too hard to impress?

I'd say
Look I'm tired
I warned you it would take a while
Look this is need to know,
And you're on a need to know basis
