    Lyrics

    I can imagine nothing more tedious
    Than trying to have fun with you again
    Maybe it's just someting in my mind
    But I hate feeling like I'm trying all the time
    It's a kind of lie
    When we pretend that we're still friends

    I'm sure that you're not exactly short of people to
    hang out and laugh at your jokes
    Tell you you look great
    You wouldn't want me around
    Making it all feel "forced"
    ..and "put down"

    And every time I smile to wonder if I'm laughin' at you
    And with every little grin you don't want to be wonderin'

    Just exactly what it is I'm taking pleasure in

    Although I always said
    We were basically the same and all one
    All one
    It's so easy to persuade myself
    I'm clockwork and you're quartz

    I guess that irony
    Will surely be
    The death of me

    And every time I smile d'you wonder if I'm laughin' at you?
    And with every little grin you don't want to be wonderin'..

    Although I always said
    We were basically the same and all one
    All one
    It's so easy to persuade myself
    I'm clockwork and you're quartz

    You're only happy when you're oiled and jewelled
    You're only happy when you wind me up and I know
    You're so reliable it isn't true
    And it's so easy for me to break down
    If I could jump a ride between the skin and silicon then
    We could join hands and understand. Hallelujah!
    But I listen
    to the ticking
    I guess we're worlds apart ...
    It's so hard. So hard

    I know there's no going back
    And you know there's no going back

    You're only happy when you're oiled and jewelled
    You're only happy when you're oiled and jewelled
    You're never happy

    I need maintenance
    I need patience
    I'm not foolproof
    I'm not waterproof
    I'm not shockproof
    Bombproof
    Bulletproof
    Fireproof
    Leakproof
    Childproof
    Stainproof
    Pressureproof

    I know I told myself
    We're all basically the same and all one
    All one
    Y'know I just can't help myself
    I'm clockwork and you're quartz
    I'm clockwork and you're quartz
    I know I never get the balance right
    And turn up half an hour late night after night
    And being totally dependable is very commendable
    Altough you're never wrong
    One of these days.. you're just gonna stop.
