Lyrics

These lyrics are from the demo recorded in October 1999. Go here for the lyrics to the more widely heard live version, which was played earlier that year.

Might sound funny
But when your heart is nearly new
You say "I'll try" rather than "I do"
Yeah, "I'll try and get there in the end"

The cuckoo is a pretty bird
It sings the sweetest song I've ever heard
And it reminds me how you stole into my heart
And then throw everything away
Away

And it's tragic
It's disgraceful
The way that you and me could turn out being so tasteful
And I know we said we won't
But you can call me if you want
And you know I'm always there

I thought you'd like to know
I still think you are the most
Though you left me living here
Still married to a ghost
Oh, it gets so cold at night-time
Never knew it got so cold at night-time
But sometimes dreams come true
One night when the moon is blue
Then I may come to you
With a love that's nearly new

Oh my love
Well I tried to love you
But I guess I'm out of practice
And practising is strictly for the birds

The cuckoo is a pretty bird
It sings the sweetest song I've ever heard
And it reminds me how you stole into my heart
And then threw everything away
And you stay

And it's tragic
Yeah, it's so shoddy
The way you're making love to someone else's body
Oh, but my flesh can go and crawl
halfway up the bedroom wall
And you know I'm always there

I thought you'd like to know
I still think you are the most
Though you left me living here
Forever married to a ghost
Oh, it gets so cold at night-time
Never knew it got so cold at night-time
But sometimes dreams come true
So one night when the moon is blue
Then I may come to you
With a love that's nearly new
