You pretended that you were in love
I behaved like a God in an alcove
I wasn't hidden, but you didn't see me go
You want me so much, but there's so much you don't know

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

CHORUS
Just do the decent thing
And leave me to get on
With my poetry
You do the decent thing (x a few)

I was negative but I was still right
Still prefer to collapse out of sight
I never promised, you took me at my word
You broke your own heart, but the heart it is absurd

CHORUS

GUITAR SOLO

CHORUS

So why do I still fall asleep
Remembering what I missed?
(to end)
