Little Man Tate – Nigel lyrics

He wants to live fast, die young, get drunk,
He wants to tell the world
"Oh world, up yours!,
I wanna be last left on the shelf. "
Gotta do it,
Gotta do it for himself.

Don't wanna meet girl,
Get house, have kids.
Don't wanna give himself no 5 year plan.
He wants to hold out 'til he has to.
He wants to hold out 'til he gets his chance;
His chance to dance.

Oh Nigel, where've you been?
She says you're wonderful, as you are.
Over there, thinking your life away,
Pushing the love away,
On your own.

Well his stomachs sick but his heart is beating,
The tears run thick but her eyes are gleaming,
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming.
And the world just stops,
The world just stops.

Well his stomachs sick but his heart is beating,
The tears run thick but her eyes are gleaming,
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming.
And the world just stops,
The world just stops.

He didn't think that he had a problem,
'Til he woke up and all his friends were gone.
He kissed a girl in '97,
He thought she left but oh she hung on.

Oh Nigel, where've you been?
She says you're wonderful, as you are.
Your there, thinking your life away,
Pushing the love away,
On your own.

Well his stomachs sick but his heart is beating,
The tears run thick but her eyes are gleaming,
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming.
And the world just stops,
The world just stops.

Well his stomachs sick but his heart is beating,
The tears run thick but her eyes are gleaming,
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming.
And the world just stops,
The world just stops.

They went outside and laid together,
She told him all the places that she'd been;
And what she'd seen.
Could've laid right there forever,
Under her breath she swore she'd get him clean.

Well his stomachs sick but his heart is beating,
The tears run thick but her eyes are gleaming,
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming.
And the world just stops,
The world just stops.

Well his stomachs sick but his heart is beating,
The tears run thick but her eyes are gleaming,
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming.
And the world just stops,
The world just stops.

Well his stomachs sick but his heart is beating,
The tears run thick but her eyes are gleaming,
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming.
And the world just stops,
The world just stops.

Well his stomachs sick but his heart is beating,
The tears run thick but her eyes are gleaming,
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming.
And the world just stops,
The world just stops!
