Now picture this, my point of view
In an ideal world I see the likes of you
Such as it is, babes in the wood
At the best of times I feel misunderstood
No work, no play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today
It makes no sense, youЎd think of me
When I'm out of place in your society
I want to be, where strangers meet
I want to hold you at the dark end of the street
No work, no play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today
Is this the end, then let me know
Are you wanting me to stay, or should I go?
Your fancy words, spin fast and loose
I'm too tongue-tied for the company you choose
No work, no play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today
