    Lyrics

    Could you say that again babe
    I've not heard that one before
    You're looking four years older
    You're looking for the door
    I lipsticked "Fuck You" on the mirror
    As a mark of my respect
    And wandered out into the street
    Well what the hell did you expect
    And the old laundrette is hissing our song
    Like it, it doesn't give a damn
    And the cars are all french kissing
    In some lonely traffic jam
    And I've been talking to the radio
    Cos it doesn't answer back telling it
    How they showed our love in monochrome
    Before it all turned black

    There's the sand, there's the spade
    That dug the trenches that we made
    Babe, our foundations were built on all the things we never said.

    I dressed myself up in tin plate armour
    But you got me in the end
    Yeah you really sunk your teeth in
    Spitting all that sweet pretence
    But I'm pretty good at curtain calls
    In fact I've been practising my swan song
    And you keep trying to tell me that
    You'd been trying to tell me all along

    There's the sand, there's the spade
    That dug the trenches that we made
    Babe, our foundations were built on all the things we never said.

    Here's hoping you and her are happy
    A little fairy tale to be
    Hope you stay together and don't pollute
    Any more fish in the sea
    And the next time I bump into you
    Put your hands where I can see them
    So that I can strip-search your eyes
    To check for any hidden feeling.

    There's the sand, there's the spade
    That dug the trenches that we made
    Babe, our foundations were built on all the things we never said.
    We never said
    That you never said
