Cats On Fire – Fabric lyrics

His footsteps in the stairs
They just ruined my peace
With a layman's sense of style
He arrived

The footsteps in the stairs
They just ruin my peace
With a layman's sense of style
He arrived

And I never liked
The cloak-and-dagger approach to love
But with that, one day at a time
I get by

All the strain of being with him
I may appear insane
Someone in constant search for pain

But seen against a backdrop
A fabric not that thin
It's all good, I could've been

Forgetting the name of my lover
Moving right on to another
Going on like this my whole life through

I'm so glad it's over
That I'm here with my three-leaf clover
No longer out for someone new

But I, I never really saw the pieces fall into place

But I'm sure I saw them try
Yes they tried

And I never really saw the pieces fall into place
But I'm sure I saw them try
Yes they tried

All the strain of being with him
I may appear insane
Someone in constant search for pain

But seen against a backdrop
A fabric not that thin
It's all good I could have been

Breaking the bones of a lover
Moving right on to another
Going on like that my whole life through

I'm so glad it's over
That I'm here with my three-leaf clover
No longer after someone new

And that's why I've come to this secret understanding
With myself

Not another one
Not another one
No longer out for another one
No longer after someone new
