Idlewild – Tell Me Ten Words lyrics

I have to stop saying "to be honest", it's not a real defeat
To have to stop saying "to be honest", it's not a great defeat
(No, no, no, not such a great defeat)

All these things that you don't know, it seems so much better that way
All these things that you don't know, it seems so much better that way

Can you tell me 10 words that you'd use, to describe the world
Can you tell me 10 words that you've used, to describe the world
To people, through people, never seem to know
To people, through people, never know

The more I say the more I keep confusing things, to make me feel complete
So I keep lying to be honest, it's not a real defeat
No, no, no, not such a real defeat

All these things that you don't know, it seems so much better that way
All these things that you don't know, it seems so much better that way

Can you tell me 10 words that you'd use, to describe the world
Can you tell me 10 words that you've used, to describe the world
To people, through people, never seem to know
To people, through people, never know

It's what you thought you are, it's what you thought you are
It's what you thought you are,
It's what you never thought you are, it's what you never thought you are
It's what you thought you could be if you tried much harder

All these things that you don't know, it seems so much better that way
All these things that you don't know, it seems so much better that way
All these things that you don't know, it seems so much better that way
All these things that you don't know, it seems so much better that way
