This isn't the first time
I've left it too late
To get on top
I made that mistake
To be with someone
Never find what you need
We dont bail out
And I can't sleep.

You left me
Just when I needed you
You set me back
Just when I thought I got back
(Whistle, Do do do's, La la la's)
Just when I thought I got back.

This is the last time
I make this mistake
Can't see the stars
Yeah it's too late
To be with someone
Never find what you need
We dont bail out
Yeah I can't sleep.

    General CommentThis isn't strictly a Blur song. I think the song is on the soundtrack to 'Ordinary Decent Criminal' performed by Damon.

    However, it is heart wrenchingly beautiful. The gospel singing adds that extra 'bit' the song, very effective and moving.

    General CommentYeah, this is just Damon. This really would've fit well on 13.
