  • We are all contestants in your silly little game
    Your love's only expression is your personal gain
    You think that you're delicious in anything you do
    With silence as my witness, your cacophony's the truth

    So I'll ask, don't lose what's already lost
    I'm begging you, don't lose what's already lost

    Because how can you think that you've figured this out?
    You haven't got the range
    How do you think that the man gets made?
    It isn't magically

    You never sought salvation, a life was being played
    But still you're getting married, you're gonna get paid
    Hard not to be suspicious of everything you do
    His absence is a sickness, his presence goes too smooth

    So I'll ask, please don't walk out that door
    I'm begging you, don't dare walk through that door

    Because how can you think that you've figured this out?
    You haven't got the range
    How do you think that the man gets made?
    It isn't magically
    Why do you think that the world owes you? (I want you)
    You and no-one else? (I need you)
    Wet bed, drip-fed, there's no hope (I bleed you)
    Though we never stood a chance (I love you)

    Real love's much better than this
    Real love's much better
    Is it real love?
    Is it real love?
    Real love's much better than this
    Real love's much better
    Is it real love?
    Is it real love?

    How can you think that you've figured this out?
    You haven't got the range
    How do you think that the man gets made?
    It isn't magically
    Why do you think that the world owes you? (I want you)
    You and no-one else? (I need you)
    Wet bed, drip-fed, there's no hope (I bleed you)
    Though we never stood a chance (I love you) Writer/s: Simon Alexander Neil
