  • Don't call it a fight when you know it's a war
    With nothing but your t-shirt on
    And go sit on the bed 'cause I know that you want to
    You got pretty eyes, but i know you're wrong

    And don't call it a spade if it isn't a spade
    And go lie on the floor if you want
    The first bit of advice that you gave me that I liked was they're too strong, too strong
    Get in the shower if it all goes wrong

    Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is
    Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is
    Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is, city is
    Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is

    Yeah counting cards was the best job he ever had
    Cleaning up
    He got good with his 4's and his 2's
    That community service was the best job he ever had
    Cleaning up
    He got sick on the floor and his shoes

    Oh and she said it's your birthday
    Are you feeling alright?
    The next one's the MD
    You'll be feeling just fine
    Your brother is just sat there
    You said he felt snide
    You hope that that boy will be alright

    Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is
    Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is
    Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is, city is
    Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is

    Yeah well she said it's your birthday
    Are you feeling alright?
    The next one's the MD
    You'll be feeling just fine
    Your brother is just sat there
    You said he felt snide
    You hope that that boy will be alright

    Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is
    Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is
    Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is, city is
    Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is Writer/s: Adam Brian Thomas Hann, George Bedford Daniel, Matthew Timothy Healy, Ross Stewart MacDonald
