See all your sorrow
But be happy tomorrow
From the back of my mind
I was searching (and I...)

From the look
In your face
I believe
It's not too late

See where you are
When did we go that far
From the things that we said
I was wishing us dead

Turn around
To the fool
Who believed
Don't ask why

(Pillow) pretend
That I do not defend
My own love in the back
Need no question to ask

If you need
To see
The (real)
Don't ask me

    General Commentat first i thought the anthem of the song was 'dont ask why'

    but then i realized 'turn around/ to the fool/ who believed/ dont ask why'

    always question.
    never settle.

    there may be no answers
    but still ask why.

    General CommentThis song has unusually clear lyrics for a MBV song, though Kevin's singing is not at all ethereal in the way Belinda's is, so lacks that distinctive sound that MBV has.
    Still, being able to decipher the lines reveals that consistent theme of love, romance troubled relationships that permeates the MBV library.

    General CommentThis song is about fucking up a relationship and believing it not too late for making up... or so I think.. =-o
