I don't think I'm going to Soho for spring
You wouldn't be caught alive at the Garrick with me
Did I die with the daisies?
Did I go with the wind?
Did I did I burden you with this?

I seem to pace across the floor tile
Jammed up inside
I made the digger dig a little deeper
'Cause I can't believe it died

Was I not your sort of human being?
Was I not your kind of creature?
Tell me how unworthy I seemed
When you got thinking about it

So my love song isn't hard enough for you
Did I lose my tune to one of Jupiter's moons?
Did I pass with the centuries in your Coventry house?
Did I call your name too loud?

    General Commentanother great song about heart ache. The entire Public albumkinda goes along this theme. it gives you the feeling of being used and tossed aside.
