I Never Said I Was Deep

  • I love your body 'cause I've lost my mind.
    If you want someone to talk to; You're wasting your time.
    If you want someone to share your life
    Then you need someone who's alive.
    And if every relationship is a two-way street,
    I have been screwing in the back whilst you drive.
    I never said I was deep
    But I am profoundly shallow.
    My lack of knowledge is vast
    And my horizons are narrow.
    I never said I was big
    I never said I was clever.
    And if you're waiting to find
    What's going on in my mind
    You could be waiting forever.
    Forever and ever.
    I can't dance you to the end of the night
    'Cause I'm afraid of the dark.

    I have to confess: I'm out of my depth.
    You're going over my head
    And straight through my heart.

    Some girls like to play it dirty.
    Some girls want to be your Mum.
    Me, I disrespected you
    Whist we were waiting for the taxi to come.
    My morality is shabby, my behavior unacceptable.
    No, I'm not looking for a relationship;
    Just a willing receptacle.
    I never said I was
    I never said I was
    I never said I was deep
    But I am profoundly shallow.
    My lack of knowledge is vast
    And my horizons are narrow.
    I never said I was big
    I never said I was clever.
    And if you're waiting to find
    What's going on in my mind
    You could be waiting forever. Forever and ever.
    I never said I was deep. Writer/s: JARVIS BRANSON COCKER, MARTIN JAMES F CRAFT, ROSS ORTON, SIMON EDWARD STAFFORD, STEPHEN PATRICK MACKEY, TIM MCCALL
