  • You want to have her
    Two years have gone now
    But I can't relate
    To the never ending
    Games that you play
    As desire passes through
    And you're open
    To the truth
    I hope you understand

    [Chorus]
    And your love
    Is standing next to me
    Is standing next to me

    The one you fell for
    Makes it seem juvenile
    And you laugh
    At yourself
    Again and again
    But as you drink
    To the thoughts
    She'll remember you
    Maybe tomorrow

    [Chorus: x2]

    Is standing next to me
    Is standing next to me

    You want to have her
    Two years have gone now
    But I can't relate
    To the never ending
    Games that you play
    As desire passes through
    Then you're open
    To the truth
    I hope you understand

    [Chorus]

    Is standing next to me
    Is standing next to me Writer/s: ALEX TURNER, MILES KANE
