lyrics

All lovers are strange lovers
Living proof of made-up rules
All lovers are one plus another
A dream and a dream come true
 
All lovers at the start of something big
Wondering
Is this it
Is it
Or is it a mistake
A big mistake
Like there’s any other kind
One kind rewrite the lines
Are your minds made up
By the words
Oh no
You’re wrong
You waited too long
Now she’s gone
You’re alone
In boxer shorts
Unmade bed
Impure thoughts
Let’s pretend
It worked out different
Defences
Time well spent
Time in present tenses
Not pensive on fences
It wasn’t meant to be
I’m so sensitive
We’re just friends
The alternative end is
 
All lovers are strange lovers
Living proof of made-up rules
All lovers are one plus another
A dream and a dream come true
 
I’m scared
Aware
Truth or dare
I dare you to kiss him
I dare you to not listen
In the suspense
To the better sense that tells you
You won’t miss him
Missing pieces increases the thesis
At least he’s not scared of women
I’m scared of women
There
I said it
I’m scared of women real
Symbolic
Surreal women
Sub-atomic
Atonement to all women told
I’ve really got a lot on at the moment
Oh Paul
 
All lovers are strange lovers
Living proo—
 
Wait for it
I pay for it
A tour guide to life
She would sigh
Of course, he was never married
The implication being
You-know-what-I-meaner
Dig deeper, daydreamer
Bachelor
Grim reaper
Keep up with the family values
I choose to adore her dimples
Remind me of your name
Ignore the pain
To every impulse I lose my way
To hear you say
I’m single and ready to mingle
A wink
Oh my days
 
All lovers are strange lovers
Living proof of made-up rules
All lovers are one plus another
A dream and a dream come true
 
Shame
You bring shame on the family name
This’ll kill your mother
Oh mother let me live
Holy father let me spread my wings
There’s things I want to say
Don’t tell me you’re gay
Nefarious lies
Meet the parents
Eat their pies
Oh this is lovely, Mrs Lovely
Incompatibilise
In case of emergency
Searching for mercy
In second-hand love-at-first-sight
On the third or fourth try
But what if
We never look alike
Look right like
Heterobombs and baby showers
Conformity norms
They don’t cut like ours
If I was in love like my art
Impossible to grasp
Everybody just laughs
I’m the last of the great romantics
Say what
Not a box that the Everyman ticks
Relationships
Make a list of my pros and cons
Yeah I get it
I’m a column of cons
And you were always the one
 
All lovers are strange lovers
Living proof of made-up rules
All lovers are one plus another
A dream and a dream come true
 
All lovers are strange lovers
Living proof of made-up rules
All lovers are one plus another
A dream and a dream come true
 
All lovers at the start of something big
