Gary Numan – Slowcar To China lyrics

Shell take a slowcar to china
Shell pay the rent for the use of you
Shell take a slowcar to china
Shell pay the rent for the use of you tonight.

We are not afraid to love, but no new ideas
You almost get used to such things you know.
The mechanics on the phone again, we break down.
The others youd remember if I could spare some time.

In love with this elegant bitch
And here am I just a shy young fool
In love with this elegant bitch
She only sparkles at times for you tonight.

She forgets that we know,
She forgets who we are

I suppose the things I overheard were quite by chance
The only story I ever knew or cared for
Best left unheard I suppose, don't you?
You look for somewhere to start to look

Well take a slowcar to china
Everything that you need is here
Well take a slowcar to china
Everything that you need is here tonight.

I forgot not to call,
And now were out of love.

Shell take a slowcar to china
A little green worm inside my head
Shell take a slowcar to china
A little green worm inside my head tonight.

Theres nothing much to keep us alive, but dance.
All that she can say is goodbye. All things change I suppose
Well sing without voice, without heart and leave no address
I well never ever see you again. I know.

Don't take a slowcar to china
She needed nothing and no one so
Don't take a slowcar to china
She needed nothing and no one here tonight.

You will pay like before.
Always one step behind.
You will pay mr jones.
Always one step away.

Theres no one here to leave you behind but me.
