lyrics

Stop the World
Face down in a shallow bath I can feel the world and its warm and wet
Is there more to life or is that enough then the lights go out and I start to fret
And I know you’re there because I can hear you laugh and you take my head and you pull me up
Then you lead me down like an usherette you say the movie hasn’t finished yet
And I poke around in your things a bit and you know I’m there but you pretend you don’t
And its fine at first then it starts to spit but the music doesn’t stop at that
And I’m closing in on a shallow thought that I fell in love with the girl next door
But she’s married now and got a kid and you’re the one, you’re the one I’m with
Stop the world don’t let it pass you can hold that thought for the rest of the day
Hold your horses make them stop till the moment splits us into different waves
Lie down and you better wait till there’s someone kissing on your back
And its fine at first then he starts to lick but the movement doesn’t stop at that
I’m closing in on a shallow spot that you know is there but you pretend you don’t
Then the feeling’s gone before it starts better stop the world don’t let it pass
Stop the world don’t let it pass you can hold that thought for the rest of the day
Hold your horses make them stop till the moment splits us into different waves
