lyrics: Belle & Sebastian<br><br>Ooh! Get me away from here I'm dying<br>Play me a song to set me free<br>Nobody writes them like they used to<br>So it may as well be me<br>Here on my own now after hours<br>Here on my own now on a bus<br>Think of it this way<br>You could either be successful or be us<br>With our winning smiles, and us<br>With our catchy tunes and words<br>Now we're photogenic<br>You know, we don't stand a chance<br><br>Oh, I'll settle down with some old story<br>About a boy who's just like me<br>Thought there was love in everything and everyone<br>You're so naive!<br>They always reach a sorry ending<br>They always get it in the end<br>Still it was worth it as I turned the pages solemnly, and then<br>With a winning smile, the poor boy<br>With naivety succeeds<br>At the final moment, I cried<br>I always cry at endings<br><br>Oh, that wasn't what I meant to say at all<br>From where I'm sitting, rain<br>Falling against the lonely tenement<br>Has set my mind to wander<br>Into the windows of my lovers<br>They never know unless I write<br>"This is no declaration, I just thought I'd let you know goodbye"<br>Said the hero in the story<br>"It is mightier than swords<br>I could kill you sure<br>But I could only make you cry with these words"<br><br>
