If I Could Talk I'd Tell You

Album: Car Button Cloth (1996)

  • Half past nine, quarter to ten
    10:15, and we're coming around again
    Hold off, are we going soft?
    Flushed my Zoloft, and we're comin' around again
    Found out, and I almost drowned
    Walked back down, and we're coming around again

    [Chorus:]
    If I could talk I'd tell you
    If I could smile I'd let you know
    You are far and away
    My most imaginary friend

    {repeat chorus}

    Khmer Rhouge, and genocide qua
    Your place or Mein Kempf, now I'm givin' the dog a bone
    Slight hunch, without the vaguest clue
    To keep the blood balanced, now we're coming around again
    Half past nine, quarter two,
    Ten-fifteen, and we're comin' around again

    If I could talk I'd tell you
    If I could smile I'd let you know
    You are far and away
    My most imaginary friend

    If I could talk I'd tell you
    If I could smile I'd let you know
    You are far and away
    My most imaginary friend Writer/s: Eugene Kelly, Evan Dando
