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
