The Cribs – Glitters Like Gold lyrics

It's so strange seeming
Like a friends mothers perfume
That you can be what you want
Anointed genius, poets and good fucks
Yeah, you can be what you want

Anyway, getting the feeling
Spent all my splendour long ago
And thought I rarely see it
Your other side glitters like gold

It never shows that my mind will always fight me
With both sides claiming victory
Kiss my stiff upper lip and forever, release me
Vanity dance around me
Whatever you think about me
I'm the whale beneath the ship
Who would ever believe me?, yeah

Should I say something?
It seems they'd like me better
If I just sing nonsense
Anyway, never written honest
Though sometimes I think I should
But to share these feelings
Would only hurt the one I love

They know enough that my mind will always fight me
With both sides claiming victory
Kiss my stiff upper lip and forever, release me
Vanity dance around me
Whatever you think about me
I'm the whale beneath the ship
Who would ever believe me?, yeah

I guess I got what you wanted
A naive streak that I won't shake
Keeps me cold

My mind will always fight me
With both sides claiming victory
Kiss my stiff upper lip and forever, release me
Vanity dance around me
Whatever you think about me
I'm not half the kid I used to be
Who would ever believe me?, yeah
