Lyrics

Wearing a shirt that was trying too hard
Pissed on a train and he's falling around
And then I turned round and you were out of sight
And now there's nowhere for me to stay tonight

I then I walked around town just to catch you out
I thought I'd lost myself somewhere in the night
Oh is he bigger? Does he make you laugh?
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma, let it go

I could never do anything else
Just what am I gonna do with myself?
I saw him kiss you in the afternoon
'Cos I was next door in a double room
I was listening through the wall as he laid you down
I don't know what you did, oh but I heard the sound
Is he better? Does he make you scream?
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma, let it go

You gotta tell me now if he's better than me?
I need to know, oh can't you see?
Something strange is getting stronger
I can't hang on any longer
Don't you know I want to go away?
Oh, Jesus Christ, I know I'm gonna lose the game
And I've only got myself to blame
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

Oh right

I'm gonna leave town
I'm gonna catch a train
I'm going somewhere where I can start again
I'm going to let it all go just like you said
And look for someone else who can take the blame
Is he younger? Can he make you laugh?
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma, let it go

Oh, let it go

After seven years down a dead-end road
I'm gonna get off here
I'm gonna let it go

Let it go

Jarvis' sleeve notes

This was on our "audition tape" that we recorded at Island's Fallout Shelter studios before we got signed. The synth riff was nicked from a BBC Radiophonic Workshop album and it was called "The Boss" cos we reckoned it sounded a bit like Bruce Springsteen.
