Rowan & Martin

lyrics

I know you’ve come here to express such joy
To impress me with your snakey moves
They were as charming as I might expect
Then again you had nothing to lose

I like your backing band and your strange strut
I’m sure all your fans want to kiss your butt
Oh this is happening, this is going down
Take a load off your feet why don’t you hang around
Oh you look so calm I would say serene
To imagine-- no one on Earth’s been where you’ve been

Even the brightest star is the sky’s been dead a thousand years
And it just takes one tiny stone to jam the gears

And you’re collapsing
I see you collapsing

Oh if we were together, things could be startin’
We’d make the world all laugh, like Rowan and Martin
We’d lounge with cigarettes in sofas made of leather
We’d catch the butterflies and breathe in all the heather
And we’d build the perfect sand towers
And we’d rent scooters by the hour
And when our fun was finished
you’d leave—but our love would not diminish

I’ve never felt so tired
I’ve never felt so alone
I’ve kept it close to the vest
I’ve kept it close to the bone

Sailed out to the West
So far from my home
I’ve never kept so silent
I’ve never felt so alone

But if you could feel as I do
I know things could be different
Put your self in my shoes
Imagine my position

I’m just doing what the people want
This isn’t my decision
Put yourself in my shoes
Imagine my position

I’m doing what the people want
