lyrics

D:We are wordless on the station steps
So I think of noise to fill the air between us
I miss the feeling of you sometimes, but I've made my choice
I'm back to lonely days when you start speaking of your newest lover
I feel fourteen like the world is new and I could almost touch that something if I wasn't scared of girls

L: Hey I think that's unfair as I'm a girl yet you're not scared of me
You see me pretty often coming round for tea or movies even though we're not together

D: Well it's different as just friends
And now we're certainly just friends since Peter came to stick himself into your bedroom

I want to suck on your shoulder with a muscle disorder
And you would hold me upright
And you would hold me together

L: When you start to cry about your loneliness like you're the first
Remember when you met me at the show you had your friends
I was there to see my brother who had vanished
I went out, it's easier to act like I'm just waiting for a friend
Not appearing as I feel, like I have never learned to talk

D: I find it hard to believe that you have a problem speaking in a group of people
If you have a problem it must be that you get boys approaching you too often and they're boring
When I saw you I had to speak to you
You're so attractive in your flower dress
And cool when we began to laugh at strangers
I should have told you then that you could be my only friend that mattered

I want to suck on your shoulder with a muscle disorder
And you would hold me upright
And you would hold me together

L: Are you stupid or are you sarcastic?
Are you saying that for all these months you've wanted us to get back to some sort of romance?

D: Well it's not as simple as that sentence, but I guess
I realised how much I missed you when you said you couldn't come
You were on a coffee date with Peter
Each time I thought about I felt worse because I knew that it was too late

L: It's not too late

I want to suck on your shoulder with a muscle disorder
And you would hold me upright
And you would hold me together

And I would collapse down your body
My ears would bend back on your belt loops
And you would hold me upright
And you would hold me together
