Starlings Lyrics

Elbow - Starlings

 

How dare the premier

Ignore my invitations

 

He'll have to go

So to the bunchy luncheons

 

With the second on my list of things to do

 

At the top you're stopping by your place of work

And acting like I haven't dreamed of you and I

And marriage in an orange grove

 

You are the only thing in any room you're ever in

I'm stubborn selfish and too old

 

I sat you down and told you how the truest love

That's ever found is for oneself

 

You pulled apart my theory with a weary

 

And disinterested sigh

 

So yes i guess i'm asking you to back a horse

That's good for glue and nothing else

 

But find a man that's truer than

Find a man that needs you more than I

 

Sit with me a while and let me listen to you

Talk about your dreams and obsessions

I'll be quite and confessional

 

The violence explode inside me

When i meet your eyes

Then I'm spinning and diving

Like a cloud of starlings

 

Darling is this love

 

 

END
