  • We shared a bed but never touched
    Next time we compensated in a rush
    Showing no signs of fatique
    I've got a friend to act as a go-between
    There's a distant draw to your delivery
    You delivered me
    (And when I drown
    You resuscitated me)?
    You resuscitate me
    This bed's too tight
    I stepped upon your records in the night
    Put on your favorite skirt
    I've got a plan that'll never work
    This isn't the first time
    But it still feels innocent
    I just want to kiss you
    There won't be a time
    When my mind strays to you
    No, I'm not going to miss you
    Oh the fireworks in Brixton
    Two carousel hearts spinning
    If it's a grower, why can't we take things slower
    She dreams of the roller disco
    Head full of curls on my pillow
    If it's a grower, why can't we take things slower
    I don't know if you made it
    But you accomadate me
    When my mind was elsewhere
    Out on deck the dawn arrived
    Your grey sweater oversized
    The rooftops glimmered for our eyes
    Oh the fireworks in Brixton
    Two carousel hearts spinning
    If it's a grower, why can't we take things slower
    She dreams of the roller disco
    Head full of curls on my pillow
    If it's a grower, why can't we take things slower
    We were straying
    at the lock-in after hours
    If it's a grower, why can't we take things slower
