Do you still feel younger than you thought you would by now
Or, darling, have you started feeling old yet
Don't worry, I'm sure that you're still breaking hearts
With the efficiency that only youth can harness
And do you still think love is a laserquest
Or do you take it all more seriously
I've tried to ask you this in some daydreams that I've had
But you're always busy being make-believe
And do you look into the mirror to remind yourself you're there
Or have somebody's good-night kisses got that covered

Well I'm not being honest, I pretend that you were just some lover
Now I can't think of there without thinking of you
I doubt that comes as a surprise
And I can't think of anything to dream about
I can't find anywhere to hide
And when I'm hanging on by the rings around my eyes
And I convince myself I need another
And for a minute it gets easier to pretend that you were just some lover

When I'm pipe and slippers and rocking chair
Singing dreadful songs about soma
Well I've found a better method of pretending you were just some lover
Well I've found a better method of pretending you were just some lover

    It's "songs about SUMMER", not "something". And "WILL" instead of "well". Officially on recent issue of Q. A beautiful sad song about an old love.

    Alex uses " Summat" instead of "Something" it's a slang, so the lyric is technically correct

    I think its about a girl who broke his heart by not being ready for a relationship or meeting his love timetable

    Maybe he wanted to reffer that love is just a game, or, that love is just something that u can have for a moment and after that just discard. As far as i know laserquest is an energetic game.

    I see this as a girl who did not see the relationship seriously.. And now he wonders if she has grown up but he just rather look the other way and think of that relationship as one of a lovers and as if no emotion was put into it.. Sorryfor.my bad english

    I think he means- love is a laserquest. I think he means- love is a laserquest. I think he means- love is a laserquest. I think he means- love is a laserquest.
