Maximo Park – Leave This Island lyrics

Have you ever been compelled
Under a spell?
From a protagonist who knows you far too well?

Have you ever been undone
By a slip of the tongue?
And betrayed a side of you that felt hard-won?

So we watch the water swell
From a Scottish hotel.
Have you ever fell, have you ever fell?

Are you going to tell me why
There’s a bag packed by the bedroom window?
It’s a pack of lies:
Everything has to reach a peak sometime.

Tell me why
There’s a map laying flat on the bedside table?
It’s a pack of lies —
It’s not a peak, it’s a plateau.

Let me know when you want to leave this island.
Let me know when you want to hear my point of view.

In the Observation Lounge,
Couples ready to pounce,
But there’s a reticence from treading icy ground.

So we watch the water swell
From a Scottish hotel.

Have you ever fell, have you ever fell?

Are you going to tell me why
There’s a bag packed by the bedroom window?
It’s a pack of lies:
Everything has to reach a peak sometime.

Tell me why
There’s a map laying flat on the bedside table?
It’s a pack of lies —
It’s not a peak, it’s a plateau.

Let me know when you want to leave this island.
Let me know when you want to hear my point of view.
Let me know when you want to leave this island.
Let me know when you want to hear my point of view.

I’ll stand up for you.
I’ll stand up for you.
I’ll stand up for you.

I will act as a semaphore.
I will guide you to a perfect landing.
I will act as a distant shore.
I will aim to be the last man standing for you.

I will act as a semaphore.
I will guide you to a perfect landing.

I’ll stand up for you
When you want to leave this island,
When you want to hear my point of view.
