Arctic Monkeys – Do I Wanna Know? lyrics

Have you got colour in your cheeks?
Do you ever get that fear that you can't shift
The type that sticks around like summat in your teeth?
Are
there some aces up your sleeve?
Have you no idea that you're in deep?
I dreamt about you nearly every night this week
How
many secrets can you keep?
'Cause there's this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow and I play it on repeat
Until I fall asleep
Spilling
drinks on my settee

(Do
I wanna know)
If this feeling flows both ways?
(Sad to see you go)
Was sort of hoping that you'd stay
(Baby we both know)
That the
nights were mainly made for saying things that you can't say tomorrow day

Crawling back
to you

Ever thought of calling when you've had a few?
'Cause I always do
Maybe I'm too
busy being yours to fall for somebody new
Now I've thought it through

Crawling back to
you

So have you got the guts?
Been wondering if your heart's
still open and if so I wanna know what time it shuts
Simmer down and pucker up

I'm sorry to interrupt. It's just I'm constantly on the cusp of trying to kiss you
I don't know if you
feel the same as I do
But we could be together if you wanted to

(Do I wanna know?)
If this feeling flows both ways?
(Sad to see you go)
Was sort of hoping that you'd stay
(Baby we both know)
That the nights were mainly made for saying things that you can't say tomorrow day

Crawling back to you (crawling
back to you)

Ever thought of calling when you've had a few? (you've had a few)
'Cause I always do ('cause I always do)
Maybe I'm too (maybe I'm too busy) busy being yours to fall for somebody new
Now I've thought it through

Crawling
back to you

(Do I
wanna know?)
If
this feeling flows both ways?
(Sad to see you go)
Was sort of hoping that you'd stay
(Baby we both know)
That the nights were mainly made for saying things that you can't say tomorrow day

(Do I wanna know?)
Too
busy being yours to fall
(Sad to see you go)
Ever thought of calling darling?
(Do I wanna know?)
Do you want me crawling back to you?

    This song is about Alexa Chung who used to work for T4, which was a rubbish music programme on channel 4. She was maybe a 7 out of 10 on a good day but for some weird reason this musical genius was bessotted with her. She went to pursue a career in the states, doing what only God knows and he went with her. They broke up, she probably dumped him and well...he's obviously still quite upset about it. You can't help falling in love with a total wrogun it seems.
