  • I've seen this one before, the girl she gets away
    Everybody knows it but no one tries to stop it
    Cause she barely even knows him but if she could see inside
    Everything is quiet as she waits to tell him who she is

    Is this all we get to be absolute
    Quiet but I'm sure there is something here
    Tell me everything 'cause I want to hear

    It's a kiss that sits upon on her lips, that waits for planes and battle ships
    She wants to be a dancer and he has got a picture
    On his wall and it's a sailor in a new port every night
    Yet man was born to trouble like sparks fly upwards innocent

    Is this all we get to be absolute
    Quiet but I'm sure there is something here
    Tell me everything 'cause I want to hear

    Quiet but I'm sure there is something here
    Tell me everything 'cause I want to hear

    All we are and all we want
    Forty years come and gone
    All we are in photographs
    Will never be taken

    Quiet but I'm sure there is something here
    Tell me everything cause I want you here
    Quiet but I'm sure there is something here
    Tell me everything cause I want to hear Writer/s: DAVID WELSH, ISAAC SLADE, JOSEPH KING
