Starlings

Album: The Seldom Seen Kid (2008)
  • How dare the premier ignore my invitations?
    He'll have to go
    So too the bunch he luncheons with
    It's second on my list of things to do

    At the top I'm stopping by
    Your place of work and acting like
    I haven't dreamed of you and I
    And marriage in an orange grove

    You are the only thing
    In any room you're ever in
    I'm stubborn, selfish and too old

    I sat you down and told you how
    The truest love that's ever found is for oneself
    You pulled apart my theory
    With a weary and disinterested sigh

    So yes, I guess I'm asking you
    To back a horse that's good for glue and nothing else
    But find a man that's truer than
    Find a man that needs you more than I

    Sit with me a while
    And let me listen to you talk about
    Your dreams and your obsessions
    I'll be quiet and confessional

    The violets explode inside me
    When I meet your eyes
    Then I'm spinning and I'm diving
    Like a cloud of starlings
    Darling, is this love? Writer/s: CRAIG LEE POTTER, GUY EDWARD JOHN GARVEY, MARK POTTER, MARK ELLIS POTTER, PETER JAMES TURNER, RICHARD BARRY JUPP
