Maximo Park – Stray Talk lyrics

It's dark but I don't want to find the light,
And I can't close my eyes,
The only one you really trust,
Is the one who always lets you down,
It's not my place to give advice,
When all I've done was make mistakes,
I didn't mean to tell you everything,
And anyway, well it's too late in the day

Stray talk all alone,
Swinging in and out of view,
I'm flailing round the room,
And I'm staring out at you

Don't burn your hand when you turn out the light,
Your cheek is turning red,
You always wake me with your warmth,
And your arms wrapped around my neck,
The broken silence lasts for seconds,
And normal service is resumed,
I didn't mean to tell you anything,
And anyhow, well it's too soon for that now

Stray talk all alone,
Swinging in and out of view,
Well I'm flailing round the room,
And I'm staring out at you

You sat there looking like a prize,
So I went back on what I'd said,
And now we're both left out to dry,
Put out to sea and left to drift,

We're drifting out to sea, we're drifting out to sea
You said the leaves are like that day,
And now they're dead and charred

Stray talk all alone,
Swinging in and out of view,
Well I'm flailing round the room,
And I'm staring out at you,
