If you're gonna talk about the things I need
Then you're gonna have to find out what they are
You remind me of a time when I was boring
I recall a time when you could slip your noose
I wash my hands of you
My feet wont hit the ground
I often ask of myself
When am I gonna learn
I know you'll be content
In the right line of employment

I never held you, you never hold me
It's happening all over again
I try and tempt you
You say im deluded
When will this foolishness cease

Everytime I see you
I start choking
I prefer to keep my eyes wide open
Ballerina poses get you nowhere
Patience is a virtue when you're near me

I wash my hands of you
My feet wont hit the ground
I often ask of myself
When am I gonna learn
I know you'll be content
In the right line of employment

I never held you, you never hold me
Its happening all over again
I try and tempt you
You say I'm deluded
When will this foolishness cease

I know that you'll be content
In the right line of employment
I know you'll be fine, you'll be fine
(in the right line)
You'll be fine, you'll be fine
(in the right line)
I know you'll be fine
Now that you're not mine

I never held you, you never hold me
It's happening all over again
I try to tempt you
You say I'm deluded
When will this foolishness cease
I attempted to snare you with old fashioned manners
But patience was never my thing
I said you were special, you know that i meant it
Now I'm all over the shop

If you carry on like that, you'll never make it
If you cary on like me, you'll never make it
You'll never make it
