The way that you looked at him, and then you looked at me.
You must think that I'm proper blind,
Proper blind not to see.

That I was just a stop gap sitting somewhere in-between his hand and his lap
Let me tell you that I wasn't born yesterday, my dear.

That kiss that lasted too long,
We probably shouldn't have danced to that song
It was nothing, it was everything,
It's really such a shame it's so hard to explain to you

He's back in town tonight,
He's expecting you round a quarter to nine
But you wont be there,
Cuz he prefers the proverbial of you.

If he only knew what you thought, the lust,
The lack of trust, the temptation you thought
He's worthless as maxims and flouts
He's just a passing fashion and he's on his way out

That kiss that lasted too long,
We probably shouldn't have danced to that song
It was nothing, it was everything,
It's really such a shame it's so hard to explain to you.

I know that I shouldn't but I enjoyed it
I know that I shouldn't but I enjoyed it
I know that I shouldn't but I enjoyed it

I know that I shouldn't but I enjoyed it
I know that I shouldn't but I enjoyed it
I know that I shouldn't but I enjoyed it

That kiss that lasted too long,
We probably shouldn't have danced to that song
It was nothing, it was absolutely everything,
It's really such a shame it's so hard to explain to you.
