Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel - Understand lyrics

Harley

Shall I begin from here to tell everything ?
Relinquish honour in order to make it ring ?
You'd have to make me promise
You won't expect too much from this
You'll just be happy with the gold that I bring.

We've been playing cat and mouse now for far too long
I can't let it simmer and just go gruelling on
I have to make my move
I've still got so much to prove
You can't imagine the life that I've had.

If I could put the words together
If I could put the words together
If I could put, put the words together
You'd understand.

You've been a magnet stuck in my memory
I'd hide if I could but I'm red in a yellow sea
Consider me lost in aspic
I'd give in but that's not my schtick
You'll haunt me forever, I know that you will.

If I could put the words together
If I could put the words together
If I could put, put the words together
You'd understand.

Shall I begin from here to tell everything ?
Relinquish honour in order to make it ring ?
You'd have to give me promise
You won't expect too much from this
You'll just be happy with the gold that I bring.

If I could put the words together
If I could put the words together
If I could only put the words together
You'd understand.

If I could, if I could, if I could …
