How Did It Come to This

Album: The Circus (2008)
  • Just the other day somebody said to me
    "Hey, maybe you're just slightly schizophrenic
    And a little out of reach, my friend"
    I said "yes, that's partly true"
    But jokes aside, I can explain
    It's just my way of keeping track
    With living on this planet now then

    Have you turned on your TV
    Have you seen reality
    Have you seen a program that you've spent your whole life looking for
    There's a girl in Camden town
    Indecision makes her frown
    Which dress would she wear today
    And which way should she smile at me

    How did it come to this
    How did it ever come to this

    All the noises and all these lights
    All these talking through the nights
    All these expectation now
    It's making me neurotic
    Tell me, have you seen your face before
    I forgot to say 'hello'
    Thought I'd make it clear now
    That I've always been a smiler, tell me

    How did it come to this
    How did it ever come to this
    How did it come to this
    How did it ever come to this

    Sometimes it's like I'm a world away
    Sometimes I feel a world away

    Just the other day somebody said to me
    "Hey maybe you are oh so slightly OCD
    A little out of reach, my friend"
    I said "yes, that's partly true"
    But, jokes aside, please stay with me
    It's just my way of compartmentalizing all the things I see

    How did it come to this
    How did it ever come to this
    How did it come to this
    How did it ever come to this Writer/s: GARY BARLOW, BENJAMIN WEAVER, JAMIE NORTON, MARK OWEN, JASON ORANGE, HOWARD DONALD
