Lush - Olympia lyrics

Will I ever be Olympia?
Will I ever be a girl like her?
Will I ever have to say the word
And instantly I'll be adored?
Could I ever deign to have the look
Instead of have to read a book?
Will I ever be Olympia?
Will I ever be a girl like her?

And if ever there's a will
There's a place in Notting Hill
You can go and visit still
And if ever there's a way
To find a hopeful ray
Will I find it today?

Will I ever be Olympia?
Could I ever have a cat like her?
Could I ever lie around all day
Eating chocolate and marmalade?
Now it's time to find the perfect world
Dress myself up like the perfect girl
Could I ever be Olympia?
Could I ever be in love like her?

In the chaos of our lives
Can we ever find the time
To cherish feeling fine
And in the aftermath of pain
Can the balance be regained?
Can we ever be the same?

And now, time to switch off
Sit down, turn the lights off
Lie back, treat this sofa like your own
Look out, here comes trouble
Look out, we're in a muddle
Keep running 'til you find you've reached your home

Could I ever be Olympia?

In the chaos of our lives
Can we ever find the time
To cherish feeling fine
And in the aftermath of pain
Can the balance be regained?
Can we ever be the same?
