  • Do you still feel younger than you thought you would by now
    Or darlin', have you started feelin' old yet?
    Don't worry, I'm sure that you're still breakin' hearts
    With the efficiency that only youth can harness
    And do you still think love is a laserquest
    Or do you take it all more seriously?
    I've tried to ask you this in some daydreams that I've had
    But you're always busy bein' make-believe

    And do you look into the mirror to remind yourself you're there
    Or have somebody's goodnight kisses got that covered?
    When I'm not bein' honest, I'll pretend that you were just some lover

    Now I can't think of there without thinkin' of you
    I doubt that comes as a surprise
    And I can't think of anything to dream about
    I can't find anywhere to hide

    And when I'm hangin' on by the rings around my eyes
    And I convince myself I need another
    And for a minute it gets easier to pretend that you were just some lover

    When I'm pipe and slippers and rockin' chair
    Singin' dreadful songs about summer
    Will I have found a better method of pretendin' you were just some lover?
    Will I have found a better method of pretendin' you were just some lover? Writer/s: Alex Turner
