lyrics

You

I sense you here, you're just around the corner
I know you are about when I cannot breath
But if you're gonna hang on, then I better warn ya
I don't think I've got the guts to leave

I wanna know why it can't be you instead of me?

Oh I hid from you, and your bag of tricksters
So that you could find someone else to fleece
But inside of your bag was your lucky hipster
N' I was so well hid that he had eyes only for me

I wanna know why it can't be you instead of me?

Yes your selfish giant, he called in the co-ops
Through Parisian streets he shadowed me
I made it to the bridge, but there was no way a-cross
As you know, your lovers stuffed it full of leaves

I thought this game was for me, but it's just a puppet
It plays on strings and laughs at me
So I hang right there, yes you want me to lump it
N' stroke your back 'till you're bored of me

I wanna know why it can't be you instead of me?

Your lone-white-ranger, he sits on horse-back
Under his arms are wedged the boughs of a golden tree
But to work amongst his trades I would have to be a-jack
And find wooden stumps, for my knees

Well, I can't rest here in this hole that you dug
It's rumoured it was carved just for me
But to exist here I have to live amongst your bed-bugs
Then again, you always preached that nothing in life is free
