Everything But the Girl

Ill let a train be my feet if its too far to walk to you
And if a train dont go there
Ill get a jet or a bus ‘cuz Im gonna find you
Youre gonna see my shadow soon around you
And my head is my only house unless it rains
Ive walked the meadow plains
While the desert’s on my eyes until I find you
I wont sleep until I find you
I wont eat until I find
And my heart wont beat
Until I wrap my arms around you
And my arms are just two things
In the way till I can wrap them around you
You can make a sad song happy
And a bad world good
I can feel you out there moving
Youre mine and I know Ill find you
And my head is my only house until I found you
I hate to hear other people
Hear me sing this song
If it reaches you before I do

Why does he still go on like she’s a baby
Saying that’s no kind of language for a lady?
He knows she hates that word, that’s why he said it.
He can be childish too and she won’t forget it.
Don’t tell me I don’t understand,
He said, ‘I know I don’t understand.
I understood when you were ten,
But nothing’s added up since then.
He said, ‘I’ll give you a piece of my mind
And you’re not too old to take it.
Oh, just a piece of my mind
That’s him and her mum on honeymoon.
She was born in January and that was in June.
But now her life and his, they just don’t mix,
And he don’t like her boyfriends or her politics.
Don’t tell me what you think of me,
I know what you think of me.
I understood when you were ten,
But nothing’s added up since then.

I Didn't Know I Was Looking For Love E.P.
