Maxïmo Park - All Over The Shop lyrics

If you're gonna talk about the things I need
Then you're gonna have to find out what they are
You remind me of a time when I was boring
I recall a time when you could slip your noose

I washed my hands of you
My feet won't hit the ground
I often ask myself
When am I gonna learn?

I know you'll be content
In the right line of employment

I never held you, you never hold me
It's happening all over again
I tried to tempt you, you say I'm deluded
When will this foolishness cease?

Every time I see you I start choking
I prefer to keep my eyes wide open
Ballerina poses get you nowhere
Patience is a virtue when you're near me

I washed my hands of you
My feet won't hit the ground
I often ask myself
When am I gonna learn?

I know you'll be content
In the right line of employment

I never held you, you never hold me
It's happening all over again
I tried to tempt you, you say I'm deluded
When will this foolishness cease?

I know that you'll be content in the right line
You'll be fine you'll be fine
In the right line
You'll be fine you'll be fine
In the right line

I know that you'll be fine
Now that you're not mine

I never held you, you never hold me
It's happening all over again
I tried to tempt you, you say I'm deluded
When will this foolishness cease?
I attempted to snare you with old-fashioned manners
But patience was never my thing
When I said you were special
You know that I meant it
Now I'm all over the shop

If you carry on like that you'll never make it
If you carry on like me you'll never make it
You'll never make it
