  • The world waits for you when
    And the dawn breaks for you when
    And the media will watch
    And she will change her mind

    I tried to win for you when
    I shed my skin for you when
    I loved you like my own
    I fed you like a child

    Stay in bed and feed the day
    With my imagination, honey
    Falling through the cracks in people's kindness
    And the world won't step aside

    I tried to make you want me
    I left my home at seventeen
    But everywhere I looked I saw
    Another me

    And we are the invinsibles
    Drained and lonely
    It's funny how it's always out of reach

    I hear the wood pigeons and
    I call my father in and
    He sits and hears me sing
    But never wonders why

    Why do I call out in the night?
    He found the photos set alight
    Everything about her
    Makes me want to smile

    I'll stay in bed and feed the day
    With my polite conversation, father
    Papering the cracks in others' silence
    But I still won't step aside

    I tried to make her want me
    I tried to play her politics
    But every step I took
    I had to swallow this

    That we are the invinsibles
    Strange and lonely
    It's funny how it's always out of reach
    It's funny how it's always out of reach
    It's funny how you're always out of reach Writer/s: Brett Anderson, Neil Codling, Richard Oakes
