  • I've told too many girls that I love em
    I've told too many girls they're the one
    So why am I sitting here all alone
    How do you measure fun?
    I've called lost property
    Too many times
    And I can't live properly
    A piece of me died
    I wasn't aware
    The Mona Lisa cried
    Maybe I remembered my decent side
    Wash the kisses off my neck and
    Lock my past in the basement
    I need to find your perfect replacement

    Lets start you've torn him apart
    He had a lotta heart for a heartless bastard
    So sad, sad it ain't lasted
    Scream like you mean if you wanna gonna faster
    Cos he'll never slow down
    Tears of a clown like bits of motown
    Found what he needs and his heart still bleeds
    But he'll never take a ride on your merry-go-round

    We'll never know what we may find
    Find on the other side
    We'll never know what we may find

    I've called lost property
    Too many times
    And I can't live properly
    A piece of me died
    I wasn't aware
    The Mona Lisa cried
    Maybe I remembered my decent side
    Wash the kisses off my neck and
    Lock my past in the basement
    I've found your perfect replacement

    Hope you remember my love
    Remember my name
    Put a message in the post
    I hope you get it by May
    Lock my past in the basement
    I've found your perfect replacement

    I've found something, never need your nothing again
    I've found something, never need your nothing again
    I've found something, never need your nothing again
    I've found something, never need your nothing again
    I've found something, never need your nothing again
    I've found something, never need your nothing again
    Who's laughing now?
    I've found your perfect replacement

    Lock my past in the basement
    I've found your perfect replacement Writer/s: ELLIOT JOHN GLEAVE, JON GOOCH
