Lyrics

Standing there before you
defences thrown aside
I thought I heard you laughing
but when I asked you said you'd cried
I wanted to believe you
Yes, I wanted to feel strong
But looking at my picture
I realised I must be wrong

It sounds so weak
It sounds so fey
It doesn't sound
like what I meant to say

I speak to you
with a borrowed tongue
Shall I stop right now
or blithely carry on?

Choose what you believe in (1)
But I'm not everyone
I only have one view point
Don't talk to me of right or wrong

And didn't I often to tell you
Oh, didn't I often to say
that something in your manner
that really takes my breathe away

It's not weak to show I care
I know of those who wouldn't even dare
The fact remains I feel a need
Is it love or is it simply greed?

It's not weak to show I care
I know of those who wouldn't even dare
The fact remains I feel a need
Is it love or is it simply greed?

You choose what you believe in
as far as I'm concerned
But one thing I can tell you
is innocence cannot be learnt

I wish you'd stop me talking
Oh, I wish you'd shut my mouth
Well, the reason why I tell you
is I think that you could help me out
and if you do then there's no doubt
that all my problems won't just fly away

notes

Jarvis Cocker refused to sing properly on this track so a guide vocal had to be used on the released recording instead.
(1) these lyrics were supposed to be "It's everybody's problem".
