Sleeve

Lovenest I heard another voice this morning on the 'phone
But just the other day I thought you said you slept alone
And yes I knew that laughter, okay, now I see
You wouldn't even know him if it hadn't been for me!
Sometimes in the fading light

I can't help thinking back to, well, the way we were
And then I start feeling guilty lying next to her
I know, and it cant be right

Pretending that its you. You still wont go away
Pretending that its you. You still wont go away

If you write again perhaps you shouldn't send it here
It's just that I don't really want your letters to appear
Oh no, I just think she might

Forget I ever said that I'm just being scared
I told her all about you and I don't think she even cared
I know but its not alright

Pretending that its you. You still wont go away
Pretending that its you. You still wont go away

And does the thought of leaving him bring you to tears?
I bet you never felt the same about me all those years?
Well you know, just what it's like

Pretending that its you. You still wont go away
Pretending that its you. You still wont go away

Mothers (The Jean Paul Sartre Experience) It's really not the WAY DEAR
TO Step on other people's feet
Now it must be DEEPENing
'Cos you were going out with him
'Cos you were going out with him
You were going out with him

It's not the same in this town
SINCE THIS(?) BOY FLIPPED his LID
Wasn't meant to drag him down
But that's exactly what it did
Part of him still wants you
Part of him is still with you

I'm not paralyzed by fear
... hoping makes me pretty ...
Now I sit and think and wait
For him to take it out on me
For him to take it out on me
'Cos you were going out with him
For him to take it out on me
'Cos part of him is still with you

Dan Dare (Instrumental)

Fleshworld Hey you, don't come near me
God, how did you find this place?
You just brought me misery
I don't want to see your face
I don't think you hear me
How can I make this clear?
I just said don't come near me
You don't belong down here

Something deep down in fleshworld
No, I don't want to know

No I will not drink your drink
Go find someplace to hide
I don't care what you think
You don't set foot inside
Do you remember this?
It must have seemed like fun
Well you've had your hour of bliss
Those things should not be done

Something deep down in fleshworld
No I don't want to go

I will not drink your drink
Go find someplace to hide
I don't care what you think
You don't set foot inside
Do you remember this?
It must have seemed like fun
Well you had your hour of bliss
Those things should not be done
I don't think you hear me
How can I make this clear?
I just said don't come near me
You don't belong down here
Hey you don't come near me
God, how did you find this place?
You just brought me misery
I don't want to see your face

Something deep down in fleshworld
No I don't want to know
