Beth Orton – The Same Day lyrics

Met him in a cafe one day and he told his story right away
They got married and divorced in the same day
Now he'd rather know her debt than walking down some street, another plan in her head, in her head

So many places they have never seen
For everywhere now seems somewhere they must've been
Look him in the eye to see his point of view
But then it goes back to what he always knew

Wouldn't you tell X3

Well summer days in chappel sky
They were they preaching a lie with no black tie
Who'd given and take in the same day
He's tired from sleeping with the dead and could be running down some street, another plan in his head, in his head

So many places he had never seen
Now everywhere looks like somewhere he must've been
He's looking everywhere to find a point of view
Realizes it's come back what he knew

If you were to leave before the morning light
I pray there's an angel who'll hold you tight
Guide you on some higher flight
Somewhere far from here where blue seas run clear
In this world where no one speaks the language
I only want to start a new

Wouldn't you tell X2

Wouldn't you tell X2

Wouldn't you tell X2
