  • I don't know the meaning of much
    I don't know the right expressions
    I don't have too much intuition
    Or too many credentials

    I don't know the meaning of much
    I never make the best impressions
    And I don't have the means of expression
    To explain my obsessions

    All I'm trying to tell you
    All I'm trying to say
    All I'm trying to tell you is this is enough
    But you're walking away

    I don't have the Midas touch
    I never make a good impression
    And yes, I have the scars of ambition
    And it's many expressions

    And I don't know the price of stuff
    And no, I don't command attention
    And I don't have sophistication
    Or the right connections

    All I'm trying to tell you
    All I'm trying to say
    All I'm trying to tell you is this is enough
    But you're walking away

    There's no room in the world
    For your kind of beauty
    Yours are the names on tomorrows newspapers
    Yours is the face of the
    Desperate edge of now
    When, like the snows of yesteryear I'll
    Be gone from this earth

    All I'm trying to tell you
    All I'm trying to say
    All I'm trying to tell you
    Is this is enough? But you're walking away

    La La La La La

    Wherever you go wherever you run
    Wherever you go now I'll be the pilot Writer/s: Brett Anderson, Neil Codling, Richard Oakes
