  • Desire As
    I've got six things on my mind you're no longer one of them
    Desire as a self-figured creature who changes her mind ?
    I've got six things on my mind you're no longer one of them

    Desire as a self-figured creature who changes her mind ?
    I've got six things on my mind you're no longer one of them
    Desire as a self-figured creature who changes her mind ?
    I've got six things on my mind you're no longer one of them

    Desire as a self-figured creature who changes her mind ?
    They were the best times, the harvest years with jam to lace the bread
    So goodness, goodness knows why I'd throw it to the birds
    But there it is, and there we are

    And all I ever want to be is far from the eyes that ask me
    In whose bed you gonna be and is it true you only see
    Desire as a self-figured creature who changes her mind ?
    Desire as a self-figured creature who changes her mind ?

    It's perfect as it stands so why then crush it in your perfect hands ?
    Desire as a self-figured creature who changes her mind ?
    I've got six things on my mind you're no longer one of them
    I've got six things on my mind you're no longer one of them

    So tell me you must have thought it all out in advance
    Or goodness, goodness knows why you'd throw it to the birds
    You mock the good things, you play the heart strings, play them one by one
    But there it is, and there we are

    And all I ever want to be is far from the eyes that ask me
    In whose bed you gonna be and is it true you only see
    Desire as a self-figured creature who changes her mind ?
    It's perfect as it stands so why then crush it in your perfect hands ?

    Desire as a self-figured creature who changes her mind ?
    In whose bed you gonna be and is it true you only see
    Desire as a self-figured creature who changes her mind ?
    I've got six things on my mind you're no longer one of them

    I've got six things on my mind you're no longer one of them
    It's perfect as it stands so why then crush it in your perfect hands ?
    Desire as a self-figured creature who changes her mind ?
    Desire as a self-figured creature who changes her mind ?

    I've got six things on my mind you're no longer one of them Writer/s: PADDY MCALOON
