  • I want surprises
    Your sweet nature darling
    Was too hard to swallow
    I got the solution
    I'm leaving tomorrow
    And now as I stand
    And stare into your eyes
    I see safety there
    I want surprises

    What I really need to do
    Is find myself a brand new lover
    Somebody who lies with me
    Who doesn't notice all the others

    When you wake up tomorrow
    You'll be all alone
    All the love that we had
    I have quickly outgrown
    I wanted to stay
    But I just couldn't do it
    Couldn't stand there
    And put you through it

    My other loves will tell you
    That I'm nothing but a pleasure seeker
    And for once I really must agree
    I need to leave you by yourself
    And go in search of someone else
    To satisfy my curiosity

    Your sweet nature darling
    Was too hard to swallow
    I made my decision I'm leaving tomorrow

    Your sweet nature darling
    Was too hard to swallow Writer/s: MICHAEL DAVID PERCY, PETER JOZZEPI BURNS, STEPHEN COY, TIM LEVER, TIMOTHY JOHN LEVER
