[intro sample on you're in a bad way version:]
You asked me to make a record of my voice. well here it is. what you want me to say is "i love you." here's the truth. I hate you, you little slut. you make me sick!


When you told me your dream (when you told me your dream) /
I / wanted to cry. /
You almost looked happy (you almost looked happy) /
Please don't tell me / it's true. /
All our neighbours are old (all our neighbours are old) /
Street-lamp buzzes all night. /
There are some nice parts of london, (there are some nice parts of london) /
You can see them from here (you can see them from here, you can see them from here.) /


You're / not going to change, /
We're / not moving away. /
We're staying here, (staying here.) /
We're staying here, (staying here.) /


We both work `til late, /
Catch / the fifty-eight. /
Usually asleep by eleven, (asleep by eleven) /
But somehow it didn't seem right /
When you turned and said (when you turned and said) /
"let's / go mad tonight." /
So we drank and danced; (so we drank and danced) /
For once I felt close to you (for once I felt close to you, for once I felt close to you.) /


You're / not going to change. /
We're / not moving away. /
We're staying here, (staying here.) /
We're staying here, (staying here.) /
We're staying here, (staying here.) /
We're staying here, (staying here.) /
We're staying here, (staying here.) /
We're staying here, (staying here.) /
We're staying here, (staying here...)
