So I hear your rebuilding your life
Down in Mexico way
To act out your favourite play
With your cat and piano
I always new you could play
I knew you better than your friends
Would suggest
The one who's laid claim to being your best

Well that's always the way
When you want something
That's always the way
When you want something you can't have
When you want something you can't have

You were my favourite one
But I suppose that's
Fallen on deaf ears
Because of the way that it was left
It was in the hands of the gods the sods
There an un ruley mob and on there Cv
They can now write down theft

Something's they are not for the best
And that's always the way
When you want something
That's always the way
When you want something you can't have
That's always the way
When you want something you can't have
When you want something you can't have

I never wanted this to happen this way
When do we ever a little time called never
Retrospect is such a cruel invention
No cruel intentions not a single bad

I never wanted this to happen this way
When do we ever a little time called never
Retrospect is such a cruel invention
No cruel intentions
I want something I can't have
