The Cribs – To Jackson lyrics

You're gettin away from yourself,
You're gettin away,
Oh-woah-oh-oh-oh-oh.
You're gettin away from yourself,
You're gettin away,
Oh-woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh.

I saw something pretty today,
The sky was just runnin away,
Oh-woah-oh-oh-oh-oh.
I think I was supposed to be scared,
But I'm feelin okay,
Oh-woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh.

It got to the time when you'd walk,
(Oh-oh-oh)
Now it's late in the day,
I look for cigarette butts you threw away.
I never saw you looking behind,
Now I know I don't mind.

You're gettin away from yourself,
You're gettin away,
Oh-woah-oh-oh-oh-oh.
You're gettin away from yourself,
You're gettin away,
Oh-woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh.

I'm thinking that you left me behind,
(Oh-oh-oh)
So I've nothing to say.
But get yourself through the day,
Then fall away.
I've missed out once in my life,
Now I know I don't mind.

It got to the time when you'd walk,
(Oh-oh-oh)
After only one day,
I look for cigarette butts you threw away.
I've missed out once in my life,
Now I know I don't mind.
