Idlewild (Travis)

It was upon a row of houses Tight skirts and baggy trousers Grey men in cheap disguises, High hopes and higher rises Who lived a girl who was on a mission Who lived a boy who was under suspicion Tried hard to stay beside her Until the devil put his seed inside her How? You know how Sleep to long and the sand runs out So close to midnight Time to fly Do or die Stoned in the headlights Here we lie High and dry The world will never see you 'til you open your eyes Say goodnight Kill the light The world will never hear you tonight Idlewild For two years he tried to reach her Worshiped the ground beneath her She, she was always running He, he saw the end was coming But now the story takes a turning She wakes up and her sheets are burning Head down against the fire Now, now, now the table turns She won't learn Sleep to long and your bed starts burning So close to midnight Idlewild You don't know it You never need to Here we lie High and dry The world will never see you 'til you open your eyes Say goodnight Kill the light The world will never hear you tonight Idlewild Idlewild I thought that we were good together I thought that we could weather the weather Whether or not the whys, the wherefores The high hopes were only there because, because, Because I thought the only thing between us Was something shallow now a river so deep we see it Dredge up the wreckage our parents left us And lay it on the banks to rot and fester And now I smell it hanging like a death star, In Gretna Green, Derby, Manchester[?] I don't want to hear it now Here we lie High and dry The world will never see you 'til you open your eyes Say goodnight, kill the light The world will never hear you tonight Idlewild Idlewild Kill the light Idlewild...
