about

Dirty grungy blues track - inspired by Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground. Scathing tongue in cheek lyric. The anti Valentines song.

lyrics

I've been around longer than you
I've seen the things that honest folk do
When they make love, these days, they put out the lights
I guess like us they're sick of the sight
They may be moaning there in the dark
Thinking of somewhere different to park

All i've ever wanted
All I've ever needed
Was there in your arms
Just hold me, hold me

Time has gone by and time and time has been cruel
You've let yourself go, for a mighty long fall
Your body's gone, and so has my desire
I'd rather have a port and sit by the fire
Don't be upset, i can't face you tonight
If you are the feast, then I'm on a diet

All I've ever wanted
All I've ever needed
Was there in your arms
Just hold me, hold me

I've been around longer than you
I've seen the things that honest folk do
When they make love, these days, they put out the lights
I guess like us, they're sick of the sight
I guess like us, they're sick of the sight
I guess like us they're sick of the sight
