Straylight Run – Costello lyrics

Taking up my time again (taking up my time again),
More than I can stand (more than I can stand),
Coffee and the conversation never ends when...
All I really need to find (all I really need to find),
Is one short clever line (one short clever line),
To pinpoint my disgust it's always just too much or...
Not... Enough...
And I'm overwhelmed.

So I'll keep it simple for obvious reasons,
And I'll say what I should and just hope you believe me,
But it never gets easier,
Oh it never gets easier,
Oh no, no.

Sing it to myself again (sing it to myself again),
Can't hear a word you said (can't hear a word you said),
Syllables the sounds you star in sentences and...
All I really want to do (all I really want to do),
Is tear straight into you,
Explode, unload a hail of insults until you finally care...
And... I'm sick... To death.

But I'll keep it simple for obvious reasons,
And I'll say what I should and just hope you believe me,
But it never gets easier,
No it never gets easier,
Oh no, no.

A strong distaste for confrontation,
Leaves no room for self expression,
Such a stranger in me so docile,
Though don't you know it all takes it's toll...

I'll keep it simple for obvious reasons,
And I'll say what I should and just hope you believe me,
But it never gets easier,
No it never gets easier,
Oh it never gets easier (all I really want to do),
Well it never gets easier (is tear straight into you),
No it never gets easier (all I really want to do),
Oh it never gets easier (is tear straight into you).
