  • There's a boy, fifteen, with a gun in his hand
    And the people with no audience say he should be hanged
    And they ask him for his motive, but they don't understand
    Why they love like they do, like they do
    There's a girl, fifteen, with her head in a noose
    Because she's damned to live, well, she's damned to choose
    And the animals walked in twos by twos
    Showing love like they do, like they do
    There's a girl, fifteen, although she isn't sure
    Well, how the hell could you want anything more?
    Beautiful, perfect, immaculate whore
    I'm in love, love with you, love with you

    Oh, won't you let me finish?
    You drive me insane
    The world will keep on turning
    Even if we're not the same
    Don't come on to me, come on to me

    There's a boy, fifteen, turning into a man
    Well, tell me one other thing that he can
    While you forced a smile through a jealous hand
    Showing love like you do, like you do
    There's a boy, fifteen, and he's attempted to sue
    'Cause he's definitely sure that it's true
    What kind of man, kind of man are you?
    Showing love like you do, like you do

    Oh, won't you let me finish?
    You drive me insane
    The world will keep on turning
    Even if we're not the same
    Don't come on to me, come on to me

    So tell me what's in your mind
    So tell me what's in your mind
    And don't forget your paracetamol smile
    So tell me what's in your mind
    So tell me what's in your mind
    And don't forget your paracetamol smile
    So tell me what's in your mind
    So tell me what's in your mind
    And don't forget your paracetamol smile
    So tell me what's in your mind
    So tell me what's in your mind

    You're emotionally challenged
    Why do you waste your talent?
    The world around you's manic
    Do you have no shame?
    Come on to me, come on to me Writer/s: Declan McKenna
