Ringway To Seatac You ask me how I feel, well suddenly this is all for real
It hasn’t seemed like that till now,
it’s as if you almost were still mine somehow
I hope you’ve realised just how I’m being so civilised
But it’s nearly time I went,
we’ve got one last chance to have an argument

Watching you walk back to your car
Was the lowest point of my life so far

Don’t stare into my eyes, I couldn’t bear for you to realise
That I’m still desperately in love with you
and darling that’s all I can think of
It’ll get easier every day, well I’ll be five thousand miles away
And I’m good at hiding pain
but now I really should get on that plane

And watching you walk back to your car
Was the lowest point of my life so far
As if you still could ever do a single thing
That’d make me hate you

Shivers When you told me that you don't get shivers any more
When you hold me you said it's just not like it was before
Overnight you changed, the world got rearranged

You were clever, the way you never settled down
To be here forever, the way you smiled and said
Let's take it one day at a time, you walk out and I'm
Not allowed to feel betrayed
I'm not allowed to feel deceived
Because no promises were made
Whatever I might have believed
So you've managed to avoid all the arguing and I bet
You are entirely devoid of any feelings of regret

When I met you, I was so in love that I
Just sat back and let you make up all the rules and that
Wasn't a good thing to do because my world revolves around you and I'm
Not allowed to feel betrayed
I'm not allowed to feel deceived
Because no promises were made
Whatever I might have believed
So you've managed to avoid all the arguing and I bet
You are entirely devoid of any feelings of regret

American TanWhy do we have this awkward scene
Everytime I phone and you're not alone
Why does it always have to be
a tense atmosphere until you get here

You tear off my shirt
Then slip off your skirt
If you want to play I can
Just leave on your american tan

Why in your friends company
Do you act so cold, I think I should be told
Why are you so ashamed of me
'cause when they're not there, you seem to care

You suddenly become
A lot less quarrelsome
Without your hangers on
Embarrassment has gone

I really want your love
But I've been taken advantage of
Because the woman I adore
Only appears behind this door

Why can't you just be fair
Can't you be this lovely
When your friends are there

Why have you got to screw
And not say that you love me?
Oh then I knew
