Arab Strap - The Shy Retirer lyrics

Another bloated disco,
Another sniff of romance I'll forget
We promised to ourselves before we came out
We'd do something we regret

These people are your friends
This cunted circus never ends
I won't remember anything you say

I lost my social skills a while ago
But now I feel them coming back
My eyes were rolling when we met
And now they are preparing for attack

I want to fall in love tonight
And form the perfect unbreakable bond
You can be my teenage Jenny Agutter
Swimming naked in a pond

You know i'm always moanin'
But you jumpstart my seratonin
But how d'you know you've ever really loved?

But when I feel like this, I know it doesn't matter
When I eat when I'm not hungy I'm sure I feel my face get fatter
Then I thin out every weekend and I think that she might want me
But I always slip off my own 'cause...

I let those feelings haunt me, they control me,
But tonight I'm letting go
You're more then just a photo album,
You're more than what some people let you know

And if we ever make it home,
I'll tell you all the things that shaped me thus;
Something forged in a phonebox but lost in a restaurant
We've got so much to discuss

Here, have you tried the blue ones?
I hear he's got some new ones
Sleep is not an option tonight

Look at us just stand and stare
Look at them just pose and pout
And we'll all be standing here
Until the pigs chuck us out
