A Lack Of Understanding

Album: What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? (2011)
  • It's only been a year
    But it feels like a lifetime here
    How's it been for you?
    Does it feel like a lifetime too?
    What would you do now in light of it all?
    I don't regret it in spite of it all
    If I can't convince you then nobody can I guess

    I've got too much time on my hands
    But you don't understand
    Or you won't understand

    Would I make it right?
    Would it make you less uptight?
    What would it achieve?
    What should I put up my sleeve?
    What did you think would come out of it all?
    That we'd quit pretending we doubted it all?
    Oh you don't make me nervous, hell nobody does these days

    I've got too much time on my hands
    But you don't understand
    Or you won't understand
    I've got too much time on my hands
    But you don't understand
    Or you won't understand

    Are you ready, are you ready, are you ready for this?
    Should I shake your hand or should I give you a kiss?
    Is this everything you always hoped that it would be?
    We'll see...

    I've got too much time on my hands
    But you don't understand
    Or you won't understand
    I've got too much time on my hands
    But you don't understand
    Or you won't understand Writer/s: ARNI HJORVAR ARNASON, FREDDIE CLAYTON COWAN, PETER GARETH CHRISTOPHER ROBERTSON, JUSTIN JAMES HAYWOOD-YOUNG
