    From way far across the sea
    Came an Arbitran maiden she
    Had a one track mind and eyes for me
    Half blinded in the war
    With a pale young Anglican
    Who said he'd help her all he can
    Showed her Jesus and his little un-holy friend
    She had no notion to please him
    Just say 'ta-ra' and leave him behind

    There's a little boy in a stairwell who
    Says "I hate people like you,
    I got match sticks and cable TV
    Half of less than 50p"
    We all clambered over the balcony
    Banging on the window waking Steve,
    Bringing with a true love his un-holy friend
    Singing if you really need it
    You just wont leave it behind


    Monkey said to the mouse before
    If she loved any body more than he
    It turns you into stone now
    I'm reversing down a lonely street
    Cheap hotel where I can meet the past
    Play it off and keep it sweet
    It's sweet like nothing oh
    It's just like nothing at all

    Seeing you there
    How could I help but stare
    It rips the heart out of your baby
    Taken far too much to see or think or touch
    Whats real stranded on this street
    I'll pave my only way home
    If you really need it oh
    You just won't leave it behind

    Please kill me
    Oh no don't kill me
    Don't bring that ghost round to my door
    I don't wanna see them anymore
    Please kill me
    Oh no don't kill me
    Don't bang on about yesterday
    You know I wouldn't know about that any way oh no

    He got nothing oh
    He got nothing at all
