Are You In Love With a Notion?

  • Run away from this godforsaken place
    And hide away from everybody's prying face
    You told Deborah that he is the one
    You're going to quit Debenhams
    Elope and get married in the sun

    Have you really thought this through, oh-oh?
    Is he really the one for you, oh-oh?
    Why are you so in love with, why are you so in love with a notion?
    It doesn't do you any good, it doesn't do you any good at all
    Why are you so in love with, why are you so in love with a notion?
    It doesn't do you any good, it doesn't do you any good at all

    You linger on a feeling
    That you can't quite put your finger on
    Reminiscent of a summer in the Isle of Wight
    But you think that it's too late
    To back out at this stage
    You need to emancipate
    Step back and disengage

    Have you really thought this through, oh-oh?
    Is he really the one for you, oh-oh?
    Why are you so in love with, why are you so in love with a notion?
    It doesn't do you any good, it doesn't do you any good at all
    Why are you so in love with, why are you so in love with a notion?
    It doesn't do you any good, it doesn't do you any good at all

    I don't know if he'd stay or if he be on his pedalo
    Cramping from the frantic pace
    You told Alison next door
    That all your dreams were made
    But then your home screen flashed some more
    He never was one for serenade

    Have you really thought this through?
    Is he really the one, really the one?

    Why are you so in love with, why are you so in love with a notion?
    It doesn't do you any good, it doesn't do you any good at all
    Why are you so in love with, why are you so in love with a notion?
    It doesn't do you any good, it doesn't do you any good at all Writer/s: JOSEPH JAMES RIXON CROSS, LIAM JAMES FRAY
