lyrics

With the money we got from the house
Can we turn our lives around
My five year plan
The cold cold ground

Well the simple life’s calling us now
We seek nothing to tie us both down
Except temptation to pick up the phone
And tell people
We’re still here

And all those commuters
Those euro commuters
Those besuited businessmen heading for Brussels
Will not recognise us
We’ll pay for new faces
Not look like the pictures
They’ve seen in the papers

We’ll find a little bar somewhere
Where they’ll call us the british couple
Live for the day we rock up
And just ask for ‘the usual’

Well the actors who played us have died
So we’ll write ourselves out of the lives
Of the people who loved us for lines
That were whispered
In our ears

Roaming from island to island
Whittling down
The money we got from the house
Each day we’re closer to somewhere
To settle down
Oh please don’t bail out on me now

How will we know when we’re there?
A lifetime of gentle persuasion
Won’t convince anyone else to care
When we get to our destination

And the girl says to the boy

What fucking destination?
We’re sleeping in train stations
And we haven’t got tickets to anywhere

And how am I supposed to make you care
When I look and feel so square?
How am I supposed to break your heart
With the fumbles in my fingers?

I don’t care about that she says
I don’t care about that
