  • Still got pictures of friends on the wall
    I suppose we aren't really friends anymore
    Maybe I shouldn't ever have called
    That thing friendly at all
    Get freaked out from a knock at the door
    When I haven't been expecting one
    Didn't that used to be part of the fun, once upon a time?
    We'll be there at the back of the bar
    In a booth like we usually were
    Every time there was a rocket launch
    Or some big event

    What a death I died writing that song
    Start to finish, with you looking on
    It stays between us, Steinway and his sons
    'Cause it's the ultracheese
    Perhaps it's time that you went for a walk
    And dress like a fictional character
    From a place they called America
    In the golden age
    Trust the politics to come along
    When you were just trying to orbit the sun
    When you were just about to be kind to someone
    Because you had the chance

    I've still got pictures of friends on the wall
    I might look as if I'm deep in thought
    But the truth is I'm probably not
    If I ever was

    Oh, the dawn won't stop weighing a tonne
    I've done some things that I shouldn't have done
    But I haven't stopped loving you once Writer/s: Alex Turner
