"Sexed Up" as written by Guy Antony Chambers and Robert Peter Williams....
Loose lips on ships
I'm getting to grips
With what you said
No it's not in my head
I can't awaken the dead
Day after day

Why don't we talk about it
Why do you always doubt that there can be a better way
It doesn't make me want to stay

Why don't we break up
There's nothing left to say
I got my eye shut praying they won't stray
Oh! When I sexed up
That's what makes the difference today
I hope you blow away

You said we're fatally flawed
When I'm easily bored, Is that okay?
Write me off your list
Make this the last kiss
I'll walk away

Why don't we talk about it
I'm only here
Don't shout it
Given time we'll forget
Let's pretend we never met

Why don't we break up
There's nothing left to say
I got my eye shut praying they won't stray
Oh! When I sexed up
That's what makes the difference today
I hope you blow away

Screw you I didn't like your taste
Anyway, I chose you
And that's all gone to wasted
Saturday I'll go out and find another you

Why don't we, Why don't we break up
There's nothing left to say
I got my eye shut praying they won't stray
Oh! When I sexed up
That's what makes the difference today
I hope you blow away

    General CommentJust a few corrections to the lyrics, if I may!

    1st Verse:
    Loose lips sunk ships
    I'm getting to grips with what you said
    No it's not in my head
    I can't awaken the dead day after day

    Chorus:
    Why don't we break up
    There's nothing left to say
    I've got my eyes shut
    Praying they wont stray
    And we're not sexed up
    That's what makes the difference today.
    I hope you blow away!

    2nd Verse:
    You say we're fatally flawed
    Well I'm easily bored, Is that okay?...

    Screw you, I didn't like your taste anyway
    I chose you, and that's all gone to waste, it's Saturday
    I'll go out and find another you.


    The rest is right as far as I can tell.

    Good song by the way, captures the bitterness that's often felt at the end of the relationship when you try to convince the other person you never really cared much about them anyway. It seems the only thing that could have saved this relationship would have been the sex and not even this is any good anymore so they might as well give up!

    General CommentThis is a very dryly clever split up song. "It's Saturday, I'll go out and find another you ." so bitter, and perfectly exemplifies how every guy pretends to feel when his better half calls it quits. Top notch song.

    General CommentIt's such a sad song. It makes me cry every time I listen to it. No matter how hard these words may seem, I think they're sang with much pain. Great song.

    General CommentYeah, it's great. I prefer the acoustic version (in No Regrets cd single I think), it sounds even more real. I'm sure he didn't mean the words he's saying back then and so he is just pretending that he doesn't care. He said on "The Robbie Williams Show" dvd that he made his then girlfriend listen to it and she -of course- started to cry after it. He also said that if you look at the year it was written (1998) you would know who it was written for. So it means it was written about Nicole Appleton, I guess.

    General CommentI have a little question, i'm from Argentina and i'm studyong english so this is a nice way to learn a little more this language. My question is,: what does exactly "sexed up" means?

    Then... there is not the final part of the song where Robbie says very very low: "just not today". Then, after this all he does not want her to go away. I really really like that part.

    I'm new =P
