Too Late (acoustic)

lyrics

I live in this city
But elsewhere in my head
My love lives on the outskirts
I don't remember where I parked
I wish I had a suitcase
So that I could stand at your door
I'd stay at yours for a while
And I won't make too much noise

As you whistle and make yourself busy
I wiggle my empty glass
I wait patiently for you to pour
Hum a tune, tap dance
Until you take me from your living room
Run me upstairs
Open the bathroom door
Steam turns to white writing on the cold cold walls

It's too late to catch another dream
It's too late to get what I need
It's a little too late to catch another day
Sip your tea and digest the news
Cos I gotta figure out another way to be

And so the night seems wrong at first
And everything refuses to change
Mounting silence as we lie side by side
Eyes glide along our skin
Until I shake you from your head
And talk of telepathic love
Run my hands through your hair
You persuade me to lift up my skirt
You play with my breasts
Remove all my clothes
You will with pleasure put tape over my mouth

It's too late to catch another dream
It's too late to get what I need
It's a little too late to catch another day
Sip your tea and digest the news
Cos I gotta figure out another way to be

Next morning you’ll hold me and kiss me
And you’ll also want to be kissed
And not a day will pass when I don't feel like this
When I don’t send you flowers or a kiss kiss kiss
Until one night when I shout in my sleep
And I rise from my screaming bed
I go to the kitchen get a glass of milk
Turn, staring hard at my heroine
I'm sick of sipping champagne
Sick of kicking this body dead
You suck the vitamins out of poetry
You say love but I feel dead
You say that I'm a troubled dreamer
It's not your body that I want
It's not your flesh and blood, not your sticks and stones
It's you that I want, said it's you you you

But it's too late to catch another dream
It's too late to get what I need
It's a little too late to catch another day
Sip your tea and digest the news
Cos I gotta figure out another way to be
